When i had my ultrasound yesterday the tech doing the ultrasound said that my uterus was in front. Is that bad? Or does that cause any complecations for pregnancies? She didn't seem shocked about it. She just said that it happens to some women. Just wondering. Never heard of it before lol. Thanks ladies.


Sorry ladies i was wrong. It was the placenta, not uterus Sad

your uterus? where else is it supposed to be? are you sure she didn't mean the placenta? maybe your placenta is in the front. or maybe a tilted uterus? i don't know, that's kind of a confusing one. if she didn't seem concerned then i wouldn't worry about it. i'm wondering if she meant the placenta though. Confused Question

If the tech was worried about it, he/she would have called the dr already and you would probably be called in.
If he/she wasnt worried then I wouldnt be..
If the placenta was infront, I dont think you would be able to see the baby? wouldnt it block the rest of the ultrasount.
Maybe he or she just meant that your uterus was sticking out a bit more.

No. The placenta is in the front, meaning the placenta is IN THE FRONT. Not in the back. Not on the side. Not on the top.

The placenta can be attached nearly anywhere inside the uterus. Placenta previa is when the placenta is covering the cervix. This is a terrible position for the placenta and will result in a c-section delivery.

Yours is in the front, like did she show you the position of it? Over your belly button?

There is nothing unusual or harmful about the position of your placenta.

now it all makes sense. Laughing you had an exciting day and we all go through that whole pregnancy brain thing, lol. they always tell you where the placenta is, it's part of the assessment. mine's in the back. as long as it's not blocking your cervix then you're okay.
