    Don't know for sure, ant I would think is anterior ... which section has she noted it under? Fund sounds something like fundal ... but these are just guesses.

    Basically, your placenta is at the front at the top of your uterus. Fab location!!

    "The front wall of the uterus is called the anterior wall, the back wall is the posterior wall. The placenta may also be described as being 'fundal', which is right at the top of your uterus: in other words, the top of your bump."

    Stolen from here... https://www.babycenter.ca/pregnancy/complications/anteriorplacentaexpert/

    I should have blagged that and pretended I was really clever!! lol

    yer they do just expect ya to know, i think it quite bad, the thing is she just wrote in m notes not explaining what she found, apart from pocket of blood which is nothin to worry about as it doesnt effect baby in any way
