Question: Am 7mnth pregnant. My Dr. Says that the placenta is low lying. Is there any possibility for normal delivery.
Answer: Hi Dear!
Low lying placenta in 29 weeks has a fair chance that placenta may move up as the uterus will stretch more at a later stage, once the placenta moves up the chances of normal delivery wil be more, but taking care is important at this stage like following Doctors instructions, dont worry much,do not walk fast, lot of bed rest, dont squat, dont lift heavy weight, avoid bumpy road, no intercourse, have fibrous food avoid constipation etc is important..
Good luck & hope this helps!
Question: I am 15 weeks pregnant...my ultrssound report says that my placenta is posterio lying lower covering os...so what to do
Answer: Hi. Its 16 week of pregnancy so you dont need to worry.
the placenta will move as the womb expands.
If it doesn't move and blocks the entrance to the womb, they will strongly suggest a c-section, as they don't want to risk the baby getting stuck during labour or the placenta being delivered first.
In the meantime, the only thing to watch for is any bright red blood, in which case you'd call midwife and go immediately to hospital as it could indicate the placenta is peeling away from the uterus. This usually only happens with placenta previa, so is unlikely to be a problem for you.
Question: in tiffa scan doctor said that you have low lying placenta,completely covered is,grade 1.now I am 24 weeks pregnant is their any risk
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.
