Question: In my level 1 sonography it mentioned about placenta location :- Rt lateral wall, upper mid n lower segment reaching upto OS
What does it mean? Is everything all Rt?
Answer: If you have a scan in early pregnancy and the placenta seems to be low-lying, near your cervix, don't be too worried. As your baby grows, your expanding uterus naturally pulls the placenta upwards away from your cervix.If the placenta is still lying low in your uterus after you are 20 weeks pregnant.Even at this stage, the placenta may still move up in time for your baby to be born. If the placenta covers your cervix at the end of your pregnancy, your baby's exit route through your vagina will be blocked. The placenta may be partly covering your cervix or completely covering it.Your care will also vary depending on whether you've had any bleeding or not. If you've had no bleeding, you'll probably be able to stay at home. You may be advised to avoid having sex for the rest of your pregnancy. If you start bleeding before you're due to go to hospital, go straight to hospital so that the bleeding can be monitored. When it stops, you may be asked to stay in until your baby is ready to be born. If the bleeding doesn't stop, or you go into premature labor your baby will need to be born by c section.
You can't do anything to change the position of the placenta. But you can make sure that you stay healthy and well. Eat plenty of good nutrition particularly those that are rich in iron. .
