I am now 28 weeks pregnant and I had some bleeding, and the placenta is stuck over the scar. What does this mean?

I am now 28 weeks pregnant and I had some bleeding, and the placenta is stuck over the scar. What does this mean?

Many possibilities: Bleeding is not usually a complication of placenta accreta (as stated in a previous answer), so you have to consider other causes of bleeding at 28 weeks. Anything from a vaginal infection, to cervical weakness (incompetence), to preterm labor are all possibilities, among others. You need to be evaluated by your OB to determine the cause of the bleeding. ...Read more

Had sex twice with my placenta a bit low.. but no bledding occured.. what did that mean?

Had sex twice with my placenta a bit low.. but no bledding occured.. what did that mean?

Nothing: The placenta "a bit low" can be completely normal. The placenta tends to " migrate" toward the top of the uterus as pregnancy progresses. If you had a partial or complete placenta previa ( covering part or all of the cervical opening) then you would worry about starting bleeding by having sex. Hope this helps. ...Read more

A few things : 1. The bleeding this far out is normal after the depo shot. 2. Heavier bleeding is normal because you're due for the next shot. 3. You're on iron post partum because you probably are anemic. 4. Frolic acid? Probably just a good idea. Good luck! ...Read more

I have had some bleeding and have been told that the placenta is low-lying. Is the blood from me or the baby?

I have had some bleeding and have been told that the placenta is low-lying. Is the blood from me or the baby?

Probably maternal: Blood that comes out through the vagina in cases of a low placenta is typically from the mother. However, bleeding does need to be reported to an OB provider. If there are contractions and bleeding, even from a normally placed placenta, a woman should call the doctor and prepare to go to labor and delivery immediately. A test sometimes done there can tell if the blood is fetal or maternal. ...Read more
