Ultrasound Low Lying Placenta
I am 27 week pregnant and my last ultrasound reports says "low lying placenta partially covering the os" Should I be worried?
Depends: You did not say if the placenta was anterior or on top or postetior along the back of the uterus. On any event since it partially cover the opening by which the baby is delivered, it needs to be watched. Usually the growth of the baby and increased size of the uterus causes the placenta to pull back from the opening not to cause problem. Doctor should watch ...Read more
An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
I just had my ultrasound at 17weeks and it says I have anterior low lying placenta grade 1. How can may placenta to normal position??
Wait till 28 weeks: Whether the placenta will obstruct the internal opening of the neck (cervix) of the uterus can best be determined after 28 weeks of gestation. By then, most "low lying" placentas have resolved on their own. In the meantime, caution with intercourse may be prudent to avoid anxiety and stressfrom vaginal bleeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I came home from my 20 week rob anatomy ultrasound today, I brought home a cd with all of my pictures on it and stumbled across the preliminary report. It says I have anterior low lying placenta, what is this and should I schedule to see my doctor sooner
Relax!: Low-lying placenta at 20 weeks has >80% chance of moving out of the way as the pregnancy advances and the growing uterus expands higher up in your abdomen (placental migration). You do need another sonogram at 28 weeks and some instructions until then: avoid Aspirin and all nsaids (e.g. Motrin, advil, aleve) and only take regular tylenol (acetaminophen) for aches/pains; nothing per vaginam; no heavy lifting/sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
18 weeks just had my ultrasound and found out I have low line placenta can I still have a normal delivery scared of c section?
Maybe: The placenta can "migrate" during gestation. It doesn't really move but the uterus enlarges. Depending on the location and growth of the uterus, it is more than likely that the placenta will not be a problem for a normal delivery. You doctor will likely want to additional ultrasound exams to make sure it moves out of the way. ...Read more

I am on my 20weeks the result of ultrasound is anterior, high-lying grade 1 placenta what does it means? Thanks.
Placenta previa: A grade 4 placenta previa means that the placenta completely covers the internal os (the upper cervical canal opening). This usually means that you will be delivered by cesarean section. I have no clue what the, "gs" means. How far along are you? The placental appearance very early can be misleading and is frequently re-evaluated later in pregnancy. ...Read more
I just had my ultrasound at 16 wiks 3 days and it says anterior placenta grade 1 pls. Explain further?
Dr said placenta was thick when I went to appt and he did ultrasound at 15 weeks. Is this bad? He didn't seemed concerned.
Don't worry: Placentas are variable in shape and change over the course of a pregnancy. The placenta is evaluated at ultrasound to be sure that it has a normal structure and location. Thickness is just one of many criteria used to assess whether you have a healthy placenta. When you have your anatomy screen at 18-22 weeks, the placenta will be reevaluated and hopefully normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not always: Accessory placental lobes are sometimes easy to see on ultrasound and sometimes not. It depends on the weight of the patient, the gestational age, the skill of the sonographer, the position of the placenta and the baby, the quality of the machine and many other factors. If concerned have your doctor do an ultrasound specifically looking for this. ...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

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.
