Appears moth eaten with increased number and enlarged lucane. 4. Loss of hypoechoic area at the placental-myometerial interface. 5. There is loss continually of the bladdr wall superiorly. 6 increased vascularity at junction of bladder and uterine wall. Morbidly adherant placenta percreta.

Thanks for posting your query.
The findings of your ultrasound are suggestive of a morbidly adherent placenta to the uterine wall which might be difficult to remove after delivery. The placenta in your case is also adherent to the urinary bladder wall.
This can be the cause of the lower abdominal pain that you are having. Extensive hemorrhage can happen during delivery and a bladder reconstruction surgery might be needed along with surgical removal of placenta.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
