My placenta is anterior! Does having an anterior placenta effect the feeling of the baby's movements? What is a anterior placenta?
Anterior = front: Anterior is just another name for the front. Visualize your womb as an upside down bag, with your placenta located on the front wall and the baby behind it. Location has little to do with perception of movements. Most first timers pick it up by 20 wks, repeats do at 16-18. ...Read more

Is scar tissue anterior after a c-section? If so with 2nd c-sec will accreta be created if placenta is anterior?
Yes, and usually not: The uterine scar created by a cesarean section is anterior. The risk of placenta accreta or other abnomal placentation is increased after each c-section. Fortunately, an anterior placenta does not usually mean a placenta accreta. Based on a 2011 british study "359 deliveries by cs at first birth would result in one additional case of placenta previa in the next pregnancy. ". ...Read more

The location of the placenta is only a concern if it covers the cervical opening. Your OB would want to know that it is anterior if a C-section is needed so he should be careful at the time of operation.

37 week pregnant. Cervical length is normal. Found loose cord around neck at time of scan. Placenta is anterior in uterus. Maturity grade 1. Suggest?
See below.: Fundal means at the top of your uterus closest to your head. Anterior means in the front part of your uterus closest to your belly button. Well away from your internal os means that the placenta is not covering the "exit" from your uterus down by your vagina. This is a very safe placental placement. ...Read more
Not to worry: This is a minor detail of an ultrasound report and only has relevance for an obstetrician who might be doing a cesarean section. A c-section incision is made through the lower uterine segment and so knowing this provides a caution to the surgeon when s/he operates. Generally in pregnancy, as the uterus and baby grow, a placenta tends to move back from this position so I doubt it will be important ...Read more

Early ultrasound: Assuming your question is regarding the location of the placenta. An early ultrasound indicating a low lying placenta will be repeated later in pregnancy.

At this point, a problem but one that will probably resolve. ...Read more
23+5 pregnant with my first baby not feeling much of the movements only sometimes. Placenta, anterior should I be concerned?
No: As the baby grows it becomes easier to feel movement. You are usually farther along in your pregnancy with your first baby before you even feel movement than with subsequent babies and some babies move more than others. The concern is if you feel a decrease in movement compared to what you have been feeling. Best wishes to you both. ...Read more
24+2 week pregnant not feeling much of baby's movement. Maybe 1 or 2 kicks in entire day. Placenta anterior, and it's my first baby. Really worried?
Movement: Because you have an anterior placenta, you often times don't feel movement even when heard on a fetal monitor or seen on ultrasound. You can always call your OB provider and see if he/she has an answering service. He/she may want you to get some fetal monitoring even though what you describe is fairly common. ...Read more
Last ultrasound 33 weeks show cepheric presentation and placenta anterior uper as there any posibilty to move plecenta or the baby change postion?
Baby moving: At 33 weeks, the placenta isn't likely to move any more, it will stay anterior upper. By 33 weeks, the baby has probably settled in for the term BUT if you've given birth before, there in an increased chance that the baby can still shift around to transverse or breech. This is much less common if it's your first. ...Read more

Placenta - anterior in upper and lower uterine segment, edge of placenta is 28 mm away from internal os, what does this mean?
It means all good!: The placenta is far enough away from the internal "hole" of the cervix that previa--a dangerous condition that can cause hemorrhage--is not an issue. The placenta has to go somewhere--the front (anterior), the top (fundus) or back (posterior). I don't know any more about your condition but based on that info, it all sounds ok! ...Read more

It may!: You need repeat sonograms during pregnancy to evaluate the situation.

Be vigilant and know your situation! ...Read more
