Placenta Previa?

Postby 1daysoon » Wed Apr 29, 2015 1:03 pm

I had an ultrasound to measure growth and check on everything yesterday because the ob was concerned with the babys movement since some days he's more active than others....the us showed I have placenta previa...she put me on pelvic rest and said we will monitor again in a month...I'm trying not to worry as she did say it can move but I'm terrified of having a c section or having the baby premature....has anyone had experience with placenta previa? Any cases where it's caught in 3rd tri and moved?

Lurking from Sept...I had it with DS, but mine had moved by the third trimester. Did they say whether it's more to one side or the other? If it's only partially covered it might still move, but if it's right on top of it you are probably looking at a C-Section. It can be fatal for both of you to attempt a vaginal birth with placenta previa. FX that it moves for you. I'm sorry that you are having to worry about this and wish you all the best.

:( thank you...she didn't really give me much detail I didn't know what questions to ask really she just told me the placenta is low by my cervix...this issue seemed to just have happened recently, well since my last us that was when I was 20 weeks and all was good then

It's good that they caught it then, a lot of women don't get another ultrasound after 20 weeks so that could have been disastrous! If your Dr. didn't seem alarmed then it's probably nothing to worry yourself about yet. Just focus on the positive - you'll get to see your little boy again in a month!!

I have low lying placenta; back side opposite of prévia but same concept. I am waiting till I'm 26 weeks to confirm the problem still is present.

I just found out at my 20 week ultrasound I have a low lying placenta, basically the same thing as there are different grades of it. My placenta is 14 mm from my cervix and we will get rechecked at 30 weeks. My doctor did not seem concerned but I definitely am. I haven't had any bleeding but now I worry daily that I'll see red :/ I've just been taking it easy, not lifting anything heavy and hope that it will move up in the next 10 weeks!

Sorry just noticed your post October.. like u I was very worried doc had me on pelvic rest and of course Google didn't help...my previa was caught a little late and I thought it wouldn't change but I just had my ultrasound yesterday and the results came back great, my placenta moved! Just take it easy and try to rest as much as possible there's still lots of room for the placenta to move

My placenta has moved away from cervix, so now it's just the globular part that is concerning

I had it twice. First time it moved late late but they said it was fine. I did hemmorhage pretty bad, but sometimes I just do so who knows, it could have just been a little too close. Second time, it was a complete placenta previa. Stayed complete until my 35th week when it moved. Try to stay positive.
