Question: I'm 19 weeks pregnant..I went through anamoly scanning doc told me that I have a low lying placenta. What all precautions should I take?
Don't worry much about low lying placenta. Many ppl have it. Just take enough bed rest, so that when your uterus grows the placenta automatically moves up. Only idea here is to not make the placenta move further down by lifting heavy things, walking faster kind of strenuous things involving the pelvic region. You can sit for as much as you want. Just keep your legs elevated so that your pelvic region is stress free. And if you feel like walking, walk very slowly. Avoid long travels/ travels on bumpy roads even if it's shorter. Do this for 4-6 weeks and during the next scan you should find out that your placenta has moved up. Relax and enjoy your pregnancy. Though this is a serious medical condition, it's remedy is veryc very simple and easily solved in shorter duration.
Question: I was told i have "low lying placenta" during my 3rd and 5th month scan. However we had second opinion in another hospital in 2 days after 5th scan and was told "no low lying placenta". Will it change again?
Answer: Hi dear,
If the placental growth is upwards then you should be glad,that it won't be low lying again.but if the growth is downwards then I am afraid the placenta might close the cervix.so talk to your doctor and examine.
