My placenta is anterior! Does having an anterior placenta effect the feeling of the baby's movements? What is a anterior placenta?

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?

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

Biparietal diameter of 2.4cm. Fetal heart is 154b/min. Placenta is anterior. High-lying. Is it normal for 14weeks and 1 day pregnancy.? thank you...

Biparietal diameter of 2.4cm. Fetal heart is 154b/min. Placenta is anterior. High-lying. Is it normal for 14weeks and 1 day pregnancy.? thank you...

Yes: I get 13.3 weeks for 2.4 cm BPD (see image). This is normal.

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.

The heart rate is normal.

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?

Normal findings: All of the findings you list are normal. I would continue expectant management and plan on a normal vaginal delivery. A cord around the neck is a common finding and usually doesn't create a problem during labor. (I'm assuming the baby's head is down) Best wishes! ...Read more

What does it mean placenta is fundo anterior well away from IOS? Please reply thanks

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

What does placenta anterior encoarching on lower segment means? I am 5 months pregnant

What does placenta anterior encoarching on lower segment means? I am 5 months pregnant

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

FHR is 166. CRL is 67.3mms. Placenta anterior, grade 0 and is low lying reaching upto lower uterine segment.

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. Most will migrate to attain better blood supply away from the cervix. Very few remain low lying. If it does, then your doctor will follow you closely for signs of bleeding. 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?

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?

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

My level II ultrasound shows Placenta position- "Fundo anterior lower margin of placenta 4.0 CM from internal os" What precautions should I take??

As per OB.: You did not state how far along the pregnancy you are. If before third trimester, the placenta may migrate posteriorly and further from the os. Speak to your OB for any concerns. If there is any concern on the part of the OB, a follow-up ultrasound will be gotten. There are however no precautions you should take, unless so directed by tour OB. Why does you profile say 25 yo male? ...Read more

Can you tell me about fetus cephalic presentation and placenta anterior low lying will I deliver before my due date?

All normal: Fetus in the cephalic presentation just means the baby is head down. The placenta is on the front wall of the uterus which is normal and it is low on that wall instead of high on the wall. None of these things should lead to early delivery. Good luck! ...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

Previous c section, placenta anterior 4-5 cm above scar, no acretta now but can it develop in 3rd trimester?

Previous c section, placenta anterior 4-5 cm above scar, no acretta now but can it develop in 3rd trimester?

It may!: You need repeat sonograms during pregnancy to evaluate the situation. The problem would be if you develop placenta increta, or percreta because these could make your anatomy more difficult to deal with, especially if this would occur at the previous incision site! Be vigilant and know your situation! ...Read more

26 weeks pregnant. What means: placenta anterior, site low lying, presentation breech legs extended? Thank you

Anterior placenta: Tis is describing where the baby's placenta is implanted on the wall of the uterus - yours is low lying, on the anterior, or belly button side of the uterus, and is in a breech position - head up, body down - that is ok at 26 weeks. The anterior low-lying placenta could be a problem with bleeding in labor, called placenta previa - please discuss with your OB for more information ...Read more

28 wks pregnant, previous c section, placenta anterior, no acretta now- placenta is 4cm above c section scar. Could acretta still develop at this pt?

Yes but low risk: Acretta can develop even in women who have never had a c/section. Fortunately this is rare. The risk is much higher if the placenta is covering the prior c/section scar. With the placenta 4cm from the scar, your risk is very low (but not zero). Best wishes! ...Read more
