Placental location: An anterior low lying placenta is a possible cause of bleeding if running at this stage of pregnancy. It is unlikely to cause a serious problem for your baby, however. Usually the low lying placenta will be located higher up as the uterus grows, and will not be a problem for delivery.

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.

A test sometimes done there can tell if the blood is fetal or maternal. ...Read more
