  • it is very normal for the placenta to lie toward the top of your uterus, it's not actually inside your uterus and on the baby is it? I am so confused.

  • dont really know what your question is but:

    The only worrisome position of a placenta is a low position. If you don't have a previa (either marginal or total, meaning the placenta is partially or totally covering the cervix), it doesn't matter where the placenta is. Most placentas are posterior (on the back wall of your uterus, nearer your spine) or fundal (meaning attached to the highest part of your uterus). But, a placenta can be located anterior (the front wall of your uterus, nearest your abdomen). Do you have any ultrasound images? If the placenta is near the top of the image, it is anterior. If it is near the bottom of the image, it is posterior. An anterior placenta can make it harder to feel your baby move, as it cushions the kicks, making it more difficult for you to feel. But an anterior placenta does not adversely affect your pregnancy, your baby or you!
