First Trimester of Pregnancy Question

User Profile
My first ultrasound report says: Uterus is bulky, gravid and shows single early life INTRAUTERINE embryo & yolk sac with good decidual reaction & regular outline of gestational sac. Small perisac bleed of size 17.5*7.8 mm is seen in superior aspect.
Embryonic cardiac activity is present & regular
FHR- 135 bpm, GS 21.6 mm, 6 wk 05 days and CRL 0.96 mm 07 wk.
Bilateral andexa are normal.

After checking ultrasound my doctor told me that baby is not in position and advise me for some blood tests and complete rest, i will get test reports after a week.

please advise what doctor meant by ' baby is not in position' is it placenta previa?? and what precautions should i take.. i am very scared now and waiting for blood test reports

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. 6 weeks pregnancy is rest fine except for that small bleed, your doctor may be worried about the abortion , also in position means, the placenta may be too low in position near cervix as these pregnancies are high risk. Do as directed and stay in follow up.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

Now, i am feeling positive, except the small bleed everything is fine and I believe that by taking due care and with the help of Almighty God, I can avoid any further complications.. Hoping I will deliver a healthy baby.
