Venous Lakes in Placenta, what is it?

So, sorry I'm posting again, but I'm hoping with a different heading someone might have some input on this.

At my US today, I was told I have several venous lakes in my placenta, which is slow moving blood pools.

He wasn't concerned, so I shouldn't be, but I'm not sure what it is exactly, or if I should be concerned.  My OBG doesn't get in this office until the end of this week.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Here's a comment I found at the following weblink:

...Throughout pregnancy, the placenta goes through a maturation process. The appearance of the placenta on ultrasound thus varies depending on the stage of pregnancy.

A friend of mine had tremendous blood loss during pregnancy for a few weeks and explained that it came from areas behind the placenta. I am not sure if that would be the same condition as yours. As long as no bleeding occurs, all should be safe and well with you. With bleeding, I would see your or any doctor asap and and avoid any strenuous activity. Definitely after your ObGyn`s return have this monitored carefully.
