I recently underwent a 20 week u/s scan and am worried about my report. It mentions as follows:
Posterior low lying placenta 46mm from os.
Retroplacental space: normal.
internal os is closed. cx length 40mm.
Expected foetal weight: 414g
Foetal maturity: 21wks 3 days
Single intrauterine gestational in... longitudinal, lie... vertex.
cardiac activity 144bpm
Is posterior low lying placenta a matter of serious concern?


dont worry at all abt low placenta.  I too had low placenta n bleeding too. but too avoid heavy bleeding just avoid travelling n stairs.  just walking u can do in home.  all d best

yes it's not something to worry a lot about. u just need to take some precautions. plz talk to your gyne in detail about it. also Google low lying placenta.


thanks for your answers..
actually it's my first so I am a bit nervous... and I wanted to go for normal delivery.. my gynae told me not to worry it will be normal with time.. thus m confused..
