Low lying placenta, uterine bleed, and growing mass on ovary during pregnancy

I had my first ultrasound at 8 weeks and it showed a small bleed in my uterus and a 2" mass on my ovary. Because of this, my midwife transferred me to a high risk obgyn and said I was no longer eligible for home birth. I was dissapointed because my plans changed, but was okay because I knew if there were complications baby and I were safer with a specialist and delivering in a hospital.

I just went in for a 12 week ultrasound Friday. The mass on my ovary grew to 5", the uterine bleed is larger, and now they are saying I have a low lying placenta. When I asked the nurse to explain to me more what this meant she told me she would have to have the dr call me back.

I am so bummed and upset and even though theyve told me baby looks healthy, I'm not excited any more because I'm afraid we are going to lose baby. I feel so lost and confused and afraid.

I had a low Lying placenta and it resolved itself around 22 weeks. Ask her if she feels it will likely Be placenta previa or if it will move.

Thank you I will ask. I wasn't sure if it could move on its own.

It usually does. As your uterus grows the placenta expands away from your cervix. It's only dangerous for a vaginal delivery if your placenta is covering your cervix. If it does it's called placenta previa and you have to have a Csection. That's unlikely to be the case though.

My doctor noticed I had a low lying placenta and just told me I had to "take it easy", not lift heavy things or have sex until they were sure it moved which happened around 20-24 weeks. Then everything was fine and normal.

Also, I had a cyst on my ovary and my OB removed it during my csection.
