Tomorrow I have another U/S too check my placenta, too see if it has moved up. When I went for my 24 + wk visit, I was asking my OB about my placenta.. He looked over my 20wk sono and told me that my placenta was at that time 1.2 CM's/ Low lying away from the cervical opening.. So tomorrow I go too see if it has moved up any..Anyway, my baby is SOOOOOOOOOOO low ALL the time.. I was talking too my sister, and she said her OB told her at one point during her pregnancy, that normally babies hang out right next too there placenta.. Has anyone one else heard this?<br>
So, I was wondering if this is why my little guy seems too be really low 98% of the time. Low Lying placenta, does it equal LOW baby..<br>
I have also been feeling that feeling again, the tightening/ lossening QUITE often now, and this feeling has a punch too it now.. Again, I ONLY feel this when he is laying very LOW.. It seems too me like he is irritating my uterus, and I really think they are contractions. If he is UP HIGH.( which is not very often ).. I have ZERO issues.. Aside from KILLER heartburn, but ya know what I would take heartburn over contractions any day...<br>
I also have my Consult tomorrow with the NEW OB, I am really praying he takes me and listens too my concerns.. Anyway I got wy off topic here.. Just wondering alout Lowlying placenta,and the connection too low lying baby.<br><br>
He is not going too get any lighter either<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Well, I had a low lying placenta last time around, but I carried ds way higher than I'm carrying this baby -- by this point in my preg. he was constantly jamming his feet into my ribs to stretch his legs. This baby seems to be snuggling right in between my bladder and stomach, alternately irritating both of them, and I barely ever feel movement above my bellybutton but my placenta has not been an issue at all this pregnancy.<br><br>
HOpe all goes well with the new OB.<br><br>
ETA: My placenta moved somewhere between 34 and 36 weeks, so don't get paniced yet. It moved so far that the last u/s tech sent a snide message to my OB for requesting the ultrasound.

hmmmmm...........I don't know. I just think that babies hang out wherever they feel please. My oldest son would put his head right under my ribs (before he turned head down) and it was not the most comfy thing in the world. However my second son never made it far enough north to get under my ribs. I think to each is own, even with babies.

babies often like to face their placentas.<br><br>
since babies react, often strongly, when their placentas are moved (while still attached) after birth, there is strong evidence that they feel maybe uncomfortable when not close to it. (or pulling on the placenta because the cord is too tight)<br><br>
remember that the placenta came from the same zygote they came from. it's the same tissue and the same life energy... AND it's what connects them to mommy... it's their actual life line. so it makes sense that they want to be close to it.<br><br>
BTW, everything you describe seems perfectly normal for a 26-ish week pregnancy... (even if it is really uncomfortable....)

I have heard that they face their placentas as well.<br><br>
Also the placenta will always move up and not down. So in all odds yours has moved up some. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

When I have a really low kick that seems to vibrate my cervix, I quick put a pillow under my hips and get them higher than my belly. A wedge pillow would be more support, but I don't have one yet. Anyway, the kicking continues, only in a much higher place. A win-win.
