22 weeks pregnant mother

Question: Hello..I am 20 weeks pregnant. My tiffa test report says that my placenta is lower lying. Is it causes any risk during normal delivery?

Answer: hi dear! so the risk will depend on how close it is to the internal os dear. as there are variants in which the placental margin is touching the internal os which is not a problem , there are some where the placenta is partially covering the internal os which might require c section for delivery and also there are some where the placenta is covering the internal os in this c section is required too. also initially if you have a low lying placenta the chances of the placenta to move upwards is very high as the pregnancy progresses so you will have to keep a watch on it through the scans to see if the placenta has moved from the previous scans. dont worry this occurs in most of the pregnancy dear. take care dear

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.
