Question: I am 12 weeks pregnant,in my recent nt scan doctor said said that i have low lying placenta.is there any problem for my pregnancy
Answer: Hi dear, few information to help to understand about it. Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix. Low-lying placenta may be picked up during a routine 20-week ultrasound scan appointment. In some cases, a placenta that is seen to be low-lying will move upwards later in pregnancy. Any bleeding from placenta praevia at the entrance to the womb in the second half of the pregnancy can be heavy and a risk to the baby and the mother's health. After a low-lying placenta diagnosis, seek medical advice if there's any bleeding during pregnancy. Having a low-lying placenta means it is more likely a caesarean section delivery will be recommended.

Question: doctor said that my placenta is low lying
have not suggested bed rest
I am 12 weeks pregnant..
what does it actually mean?..and how common is this?
Answer: Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the
growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix.
A low lying placenta, by itself, may not require any treatment. If it is early in your pregnancy, before the
twentieth week, then there is a good chance that the placenta will shift into an upward position as your
uterus expands. If the placenta stays at a low lying position but is not near enough to the cervix to be
classified as placenta previa.
However there are treatments to prevent the two most common complications of a low lying placenta:
bleeding and preterm labor. To prevent these problems some women are placed on bed rest or limited
activity. Especially activities that result in bouncing or jarring of the lower abdomen need to be avoided.
Similarly some women need to refrain from sexual intercourse, or the use of rectal suppositories or
vaginal douches/suppositories. The degree of restriction depends on whether or not the woman is
experiencing any vaginal bleeding or pre-term labor.
