Question low implantation??!!! please help

Dear All,

I am almost 5 weeks pregnant. I just had my vaginal ultrasonography yesterday and the doctor told me that the gestational sac is low, she meant it is implanted a bit lower than normal.

I worried would that affect my pregnancy, like the placenta would be low, the gestational sac wouldn't continue to grow, etc.

I would appreciate if you answered me.

Welcome to TBC!

What exactly did the doctor say? Did she seemed concerned?

I'm thinking it would have something to do with the placenta. My SIL just went through pregnancy with a low lying placenta throughout her pregnancy, and then in week 34 the placenta moved up and everything was fine!

I'm sure everything will be just fine! But to ease your concerns, I would call your doctor's office, and have them explain to you exactly what that means.

Let us know what she says!

Thank you for your reply.

She said it's a bit low and we will have to wait and do another ultrasonography after two weeks to see the fetal pulse.

She is an easing person by nature, and she didn't seem worried, she told me that like she was telling me some news neither bad nor good.

When my husband said that this would mean that the placenta would be low, she said not necessarily.

Congratulations on your pregnancy and welcome to TBC!

I had a low-lying implantation/placenta with my second pregnancy and all ended up fine. She just turned seven, is healthy, and beautiful. So don't put too much stock into a 5-week ultrasound. You'll know much more at an 11-week or 18-week ultrasound. If your doc wasn't super concerned, then you should try not to be either. (I know tha'ts easier said than done, right?
 
)

You'll find plenty of ladie here who have had similar experiences so I think you'll find comfort in their stories. Join in the fun!
