Placentas "travel": Placentas tend to travel upward from the cervical os as the pregnancy progresses. If you have not been experiencing bleeding at this point there is hope that will occur. If bleeding starts call your OB MD immediately as hemorrhages are common with low lying placentas and can be quite "dramatic" in amounts. ...Read more

What Does posterior placenta in Upper uterine seg with grade 2 maturity in 32 weeks pregnancy scan indicate? Does it mean a c section will b needed
OK and no:
C-section is done through the anterior approach. Knowing that the placenta is posterior means it is safe to do a routine c-section but does NOT mean it needs to be done.
Vaginal deliveries are always better than C-section unless there is an indication for the C-section. Ask your OB about these indications. ...Read more
Yes: Yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: In fact that is a relatively common cause of bleeding. Sometimes the diagnosis is not correct and there is really a placenta previa. As long as the bleeding does not get too bad too early usually fine. ...Read more
Exactly what it says: This sounds like a comment made on an ultrasound report. They are trying to determine where it is and whether it looks normal. However, the placenta is not very developed at 11 weeks and is usually not "well defined" or visualized by ultrasound. So this is a pretty expected statement that has little or no meaning at this time in pregnancy. ...Read more
Last pregnancy my baby was breeched cause my placenta was a little low. What are the chances of this happening again?
Many: It's primary function is to act as a go between with your system and the baby's. It can filter out bad stuff and let good stuff (nutrients) in. It allows for the proper transfer of everything from calories to antibodies to the baby. A healthy and normally functioning placenta is critical to the baby's health. ...Read more

Likely okay...: A "low-lying" placenta is not uncommon early in pregnancy and, by itself, is not a big concern, especially if you are not having any bleeding. (may be reasonable to avoid sexual intercourse until it moves, ask you healthcare provider.) regarding the procedure you had, and taking a flight, to be safe, I would consult your obstetrician or midwife. ...Read more
Am in week 19 of my pregnancy. When it's expected to start feeling my baby kicks? Having a low placenta would affect it?
Movement: A low lying placenta may have that affect especially if it was anterior (on your abdominal side of uterus instead of back). Women may feel movement as early as 15 weeks, but many don't feel it until after 20 weeks. Right now it usually feels like exaggerated "butterflies" in your lower abdomen. Movement is more important in the third trimester. ...Read more

Aspirin 80 mg daily.: Only preconceptional or early pregnancy (before 16 weeks) Aspirin (80 mg daily) has been proven to decrease the risk of recurrent placental insufficiency by >15%. If you have any chronic medical conditions such as lupus, kidney failure, or hypertension, please see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist to get them under control before attempting pregnancy. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and good luck! ...Read more
Low: The recurrence risk is only slightly higher than the initial risk. Likely well less than 5%. ...Read more
What does increased blood flow to placenta indicates in the 12 th week of pregnancy? Is it dangerous?
Normal: Blood flow to the placenta is obviously what's keeping your growing baby alive. I've never heard of "increased blood flow" to the placenta. The only danger in pregnancy is when there is decreased blood flow to the placenta. That can happen when moms have problems with blood pressure or have disease like lupus. I wouldn't be worried for a minute that you have increased blood flow. ...Read more

During my 1st pregnancy my placenta was infected with gbs and I lost the baby at 31wks. I am on my 2nd pregnancy when can I be treated for gbs?
Not until 35wks: All pregnant women should get tested for GBS, group B streptococcus, at 35wks. It's not an infection; just colonizes the vagina. If it gets onto your baby as it passes through the birth canal, it can lead to sepsis (whole body infection) -- so if you have it and you're going into labor, you HAVE to be at a hospital to get IV antibiotics (PCN). Can't do anything about it before labor. No symptoms. ...Read more
