37 weeks pregnant mother

Question: hi, in my scanning report showing placenta is on fundal posterior wall with grade 3 maturity, is this normal?

1 Answers
Answer: Grade 3 placenta means a mature placenta with significant calcium deposits. There are levels within this also, so there is no need to panic if baby is doing fine.Don't be worried. At least you already know you have a slightly more mature placenta earlier than average. Most placentas reach grade 3 by 39 weeks. It's not by itself a huge problem but it calls for extra monitoring - doctor will probably ask you for regular NST and keeping track of baby movements. The doctor may also want to induce you earlier than 40 weeks. Maybe at 37-38 weeks depending on overall assessment by doctor of fetal nutrition continuity.
