Blood in the Placenta

I am 22 weeks pregnant. I am currently on Clexane injections as I have a blood clotting condition called Factor V Leiden. My Gynea told me that I have blood in the placenta which apparently happens when your on the injections. He said not to worry and just to take it easy. Please can you explane to me what blood in the placenta means ? Can this harm the baby ?

It sounds like there may have been some bleeding from the placenta. If your doctor is happy, it should be okay but will need follow-up.

Best wishes
