    Had my U/S 2 days ago, then saw my Family Doctor today who told me I had chances of placenta previa. He didn’t have the results yet (they are sent to my OB/GYN), but I will most likely have a follow up U/S in 10 wks. Meanwhile, I’m out the foot patrol & inside!!! yay! Will keep you posted.

    So I found out Tuesday that I too have Placenta Previa. Scary stuff! I just pray that it moves up by my next u/s 2 days before xmas. I know no sex and no heavy lifting, anything else? I asked if I should bed on bed rest and he was very laid back and said nope. Just no boom boom. LOL

    Hello everyone. I had vaginal bleeding 2 1/2 weeks ago & went to the e.r. I was told I have placenta previa. I hope it moves up! I don’t want a c-section. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I can’t believe I have this condition.

    low lying or partial previa usually does clear itself up. i do not believe there are any restrictions on travel however there is restrictions as far as sex or any other things like that. you would have to check with your doctor on that one. jerika- please be careful as far as the bleeding is concerned. i was diagnosed with previa during a bleeding episode. when the placenta moved and i was cleared…..i bled again. i ended up giving birth at 30 weeks due to abruption. i am not saying it will happen to you however i want to stress that you need to rest and limit activities as much as possible.

    I’m 25 weeks tomorrow and i found out at 19 weeks i had placenta previa covering the cervix, and I don’t get another ultrasound until im 32 weeks.. does this sound too far in between to have an ultrasound!!

    tjones- I found out at about 17wks and had my second at 28wks. It had moved up but if it hadn’t, my doc said that he would have ordered more ultra sounds. My placenta was partially low not all the way. Im not sure if that makes a difference

    When I read this description of Placenta Previa it makes me so mad. Mad because my sister had it and was diagnosed at 32 weeks and rather than be hospitalised she was sent home. Even after spotting blood. Then the day after bad spotting and bleeding and being sent home….at 35 weeks went into labour and rather than call for the doctor a midwife clearly out of depth of expertise insisted my sister deliver Vaginal birth. Which she did but it was a complicated birth that left my sister in such a bad way. Not only was it tramatic but she bleed, it was painful and my poor little nieces head was so badly bruised. Just should have not been the case. ANd i am just find out now, she should have been sent to a prem-ward because her lungs developed Pheomonia! ….. luckily 8 months on and everything is okay, but still – so mad with the midwife!!!

    I have been bleeding off and on since the first day I found out I was pregnant. In the past year, I have had two miscariages with one ending in a d & c. Less than two months later I was pregnant again (I can’t walk past my husband w/o getting pregnant). Well anyway, the day I found out I was pregnant, I was rushed to the hostpital because I started bleeding, they told me I had a low lying placenta. Yesterday I went in for a U/S because of my continued bleeding and they told me I have complete placent previa. I’m seventeen weeks along. They have placed me on bedrest for the next four weeks and told me to expect to remain on bedrest for the rest of my pregnancy. Everything I have read says that I have a 50/50 shot of it correcting itself, but neither my obgyn or my specialist feel anywhere near confident in this. Has anyone had an experience like this? I have the best doctors and specialists in town, so I know they wouldn’t be so concerned unless there were valid reasons behind this. So has this happened to anyone else?

    In my first and only pregnancy 9 years ago, I wonder if I had pp, though it was never ‘diagnosed’. I was 37 weeks exactly, and started gushing blood one morning about 10 minutes after an orgasm. (sorry, tmi!) Not just like period blood, but bright red and thick, clots and bleeding on my kitchen floor. So I call my doc, he has me rush to the ER, but by this time, the bleeding has stopped. They hook me up to monitor and I am in full labor having quite strong contractions I cannot even feel that are 2 minutes apart and am dilated to a 4. Everyone is perplexed by it because I was never daignosed with previa, though I had plenty of u/s. Also, baby was transverse til the very very end. Doc had checked me 1 or 2 days before and I was not dilated or anything, then boom ,the next morning…… Again, he really did not have an explanation, but it was definitely more blood than the ‘bloody show’, so he chalked it off to ‘blood vessels detaching when I went into labor’. Isn’t that basically previa? I did not know much about it at the time and because everything went so smoothly, I did not worry myself about it. Now that I am pregnant again and have started researching the possibility of having a midwife, I am kinda concerned about the potentional seriousness of previa. I am carrying exactly the same way, EXTREMEMLY LOW and baby is still transverse. I don’t have another appt with doc for 3 more weeks, so I don’t want to bother him til then, but I just want an opinion of someone who has had it and your thoughts on my situation. He is one of those docs I have had forever, would never dream of switching ob’s, but he is also of the ‘been there/done that’ philosophy and you can tell he is ready to retire. I went in last week because I have been having SO MANY braxton’s and he looked at cervix and it is 3.5, so not thinning, and has said I have an overactive uterus with baby still sideways. I am concerned he could be overlooking what he potentially overlooked before, and the horror stories scare me to death. Thanks so much for your thoughts on this! I really appreciate!

    I just found out today I have partial placenta previa. I’ve had several pregnancies (I have 4 children, plus this one makes 5 and I’ve had a couple miscarriages as well). The tech said my uterus was arleady huge, so I’m wondering how much more it will grow and if that means it won’t move??

    I am currently 31.5wks. I was diagnosed with Complete Placenta Previa at 17wks when I had a gush of bright red blood. I immediately laid down and called my doc. It was just one gush and then stopped. I went in for an u/s right away at which point I was given the diagnosis. At that point, we thought it would migrate, but was still present at 20wk and 30wk u/s. Doc is certain that at this point it won’t budge since it’s still a complete previa. I have not had any bleeding since that first time and my only restriction is ‘pelvic rest’ (no sex). We are taking it one day at a time praying that the bleeding doesn’t start and we can keep our little gal in for at least another month when we’ll have a c-sec. I’m just hoping that my anterior placenta isn’t situated in such a way that I’ll need a vertical incision and won’t be able to try for a VBAC next time around. Best of luck to you all! Be grateful that your PP was diagnosed. My doc said that he sees way too many people come in the ER who haven’t had any prenatal care and are in labor with PP. THEN, it is VERY dangerous!

    Ok ladies so i am freaking out!! I am only 13 weeks and 1 day and today my midwife diagnosed me with complete placenta previa. I am absolutly mortfied since i also have a small hematoma. The only thing is that i have never bled from either of the two which makes me have hope to say the least (but im still early on so i take that in account too). I was 20 when i delivered my first child via water birth and now im only 22 and this seems too be the complete opposite of my last easy pregnancy. I was put on bedrest and now my husband has to be the homemaker until something changes. All i need is some positive reinforcement. i mean as long as i know there is a good turn out rate with the successful delivery of a healthy baby with this condition i wont be as horrified for being on bedrest. maybe i’d relaxe more!! Is there a huge risk of having a miscarrage with this condition?? i dont think i would be strong enough to go through that. : (
