  • You have to ask your doctor questions. They need to be reminded that we are people and we have fears. I just googled it and it said that it's pretty normal. If it was a very large one you should get another ultrasound in a week or so to see if it's larger or if it has disappeared.

  • Make an appointment with your OB. My friend had a pocket of blood behind her placenta and had some heavy bleeding during her pregnancy. She was considered high risk at that point and had frequent visits and ultrasounds.... but her baby was just fine!!!
