Placenta Previa at 11+3 weeks

I had my NT scan today at 11+3 weeks. Thankfully the baby looks great! But they diagnosed me with complete placenta previa today.πŸ™„ I had it with my last pregnancy too but it wasn’t diagnosed until my anatomy scan. I’m a little frustrated because the OB I saw for my first appointment said the ultrasound tech tends to diagnose placenta previa too early at the 12 week scans and not to worry if it happened. But the nurse practitioner I saw after my appointment today was very concerned about it and put me on pelvic rest. She also wouldn’t give me details as to how far over the cervix the placenta is (I think it’s just the end bit because the ultrasound looks just like my daughter’s), which makes me think she actually didn’t look at the ultrasound too hard.πŸ™„πŸ™„ I know it can move but it didn’t move out of the way until 36 weeks with my first and I was super super lucky to have no bleeds - I feel like I can’t get that lucky a second time. Anyone else diagnosed? Any 3+ times parents who had this with two pregnancies? What was your experience?

Complete placenta previa

Currently 21 weeks with second baby. At our 20-week ultrasound they said I had complete placenta previa. In the setting of a previous C-section with baby number one, which to my understanding means that the previa has a lower chance of resolving. Going back at 30 weeks for a repeat ultrasound.

The practice I was at did not seem particularly concerned about activity restrictions, but I have two good friends who are OBGYN docs, and they both strongly recommended pelvic rest and avoiding strong exertion or lifting. Have also heard similar from others I know who work in OB.

I guess I am a little bit confused about the discrepancy about the advice I've gotten from my practice versus others and wondering what kind of precautions others with complete placenta previa have gotten.

I don't know why, probably in combination with pregnancy hormones, but I've been feeling pretty down since the diagnosis. First pregnancy was complicated by severe preeclampsia and face presentation needing a last-minute C-section, and I guess I'm just sad that maybe this one will be complicated as well.

TW Partial Placenta Previa and Previous Child Loss

Hello!

This is my first post here.

In 2015 I delivered my beautiful son with no complications!!

In 2018 I then delivered my second son at 20 weeks because I contracted Chorioamnioitis. He lived for 38 minutes before passing. It was terrible...I waited to get pregnant again for atleast 6 months and when we did start trying, I suffered 4 back to back miscarriages :( it’s been rough.

I FINALLY got pregnant and we are 18w 5d today! Because of my preterm labor, I am monitored every two weeks with ultrasounds to check my cervical length. Early on, we found a subchorionic hematoma which THANKFULLY went away by my 10 week scan!! Then I passed a kidney stone around 15 weeks and at my 16 week scan, I was told I have a partial placenta previa.. I just went today for my ultrasound and was told it moved down a little bit more :( I’ve been on pelvic rest and taking it easy!! I feel so discouraged at this point. So exhausted from the worry and it’s making me sick.

Have any of you experience this? A partial placenta previa and it moved down INSTEAD of up!?

Thank you for listening to me rant!!!

EDIT: I’m sorry if this is not the right sub :( please just let me know!

Placenta previa 14 weeks - told it wouldn't move

At my 13 week scan I was told I had placenta previa by the ultrasound tech, but not to worry as in 9 out of 10 cases it moves. The next week (now 14 weeks) I had an appointment with my regular OB who performed another ultrasound but she said in her honest opinion that the placenta seems to be centered on the cervix and it's more likely 95% chance it won't move. She went on to say that I need to prepare myself for having a c-section. My question is has anyone had a complete and centered on the cervix placenta but it's still moved to allow a vaginal birth?

I know getting baby here safely is the number 1 property but I'm just so devastated with the idea of a c-section.

My wife is dealing with complete placenta previa and we are both feeling anxious. Looking for reassurance.

My wife is pregnant with our 2nd baby, and currently at 29 weeks. We've known since the Week 20 scan that she has complete placenta previa -- not marginal, but a total overlap with the cervix. Our OB is pretty confident that the placenta is not going to move away from the cervix before it's time to deliver, based on its current position.

So, we know that we are very likely facing a planned c-section. I'm anxious about the remaining weeks of this pregnancy. If she goes into preterm labour, it can be extremely dangerous for her as well as the baby (with a serious risk of a bleed). Thankfully she has made it into the third trimester without any bleeding so far, and she's really trying to take it easy the next while.

Just wondering if anybody has ever dealt with this and can share stories or advice. Were the final weeks of pregnancy scary? Was the c-section a difficult procedure because of the placenta previa?

Thanks everyone. I know PP is fairly common, but it's unusual to have it still be covering the cervix late into the 3rd trimester and we are nervous about what that means for her safety for the next couple of months.

Diagnosed the placenta previa and bleeding excessively. Will this lead to miscarriage?

32f, 13 weeks pregnant, IVF baby

Last night was a very scary night. I woke up at midnight to use the bathroom and quickly realized I had bright red blood running down my legs and screamed for my husband that we needed to go tot he hospital. I was sure I was losing the baby. This wasn’t minimal blood it was everywhere. After hours and hours of tests we learned that the baby was doing ok with a string heartbeat but I have complete placenta previa. The ER doctor said basically I’m now at high risk for late term miscarriage and could have bleeding like this through my pregnancy. When we returned home the bleeding turned to huge clots and is still there.

Obviously the ER doctor is not an Obgyn ans she also stated it multiple times this is not her specialty I asked what do I do if the bleeding persists and she said it’s a waiting game. Does bleeding like this lead to miscarriage or could I have a healthy baby? Is this detrimental?

Placenta previa at 20 weeks

I just had my anatomy scan yesterday and I'm still sitting with the results. Baby is perfectly healthy which was such a relief to hear. Unfortunately, I have placenta previa, where my placenta is blocking my cervix.

I was a bit stunned and don't think I asked all of the right questions because I didn't really know much about this condition (this is my first child). I of course started googling and came up with some pretty scary outcomes.

Additionally, my doctor wants me to see a specialist now to make sure the placenta is growing normally and there are no additional complications.

From what I understand there is still a chance that the placenta could move out of the way as my uterus grows. I'm hoping that happens and that I don't have any additional complications so that I can give birth vaginally. I want to have more children and I can't help but shake the possibility I might have something even worse like placenta accreta.

I would love to hear stories from anyone who has had a similar diagnosis at this stage and how things went for you.

Placenta Previa and Activity Restrictions

Hi all. Just diagnosed with placenta previa today at our anatomy scan at 20w2d. Haven’t had any bleeding. The MFM/high risk OB who reviewed my ultrasound was very reassuring and we have a follow up ultrasound scheduled for 28w. I asked if I should have any activity restrictions and all she said was that now it’s controversial to recommend pelvic rest and said I can talk to my regular ob about it and decide. It seemed strange to me. My regular OBs office says as a rule they recommend pelvic rest and no strenuous exercise.

Anyone with previa mind sharing what their doctors recommended for activity restriction? I usually do a daily walk/run combo (super slow pace), and have a 30ish lb toddler who I lift quite frequently.

Placenta Previa Diagnosis after Bleeding

Hey everyone, I am a FTM and just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with bleeding due to Placenta Previa in their late second trimester, and if they went on to have additional bleeding later in pregnancy.

So at the risk of TMI/Content Warning: On early Tuesday morning this week I had a scary heavy bleed that I noticed after getting up to use the bathroom. When I turned to flush, I noticed blood in the toilet with a couple of small clots, then the blood started gushing. I did not have any cramping or pain with the bleeding but I naturally thought the worst. I knew that I had a low lying placenta (diagnosed at 24 weeks) but since I am already seeing Maternal Fetal Medicine doctors due to light hypertension and found out at 26 weeks that I have gestational diabetes, any worries I may have had about low lying placenta were not at the forefront of my mind, and I didn't guess that this was causing the bleed.

I have never had any spotting or anything during the entire pregnancy. I woke my husband and we decided on an ambulance and the doctors are treating my low lying placenta as if it is Placenta Previa. The initial concern was the possibility of an emergency C-section on Tuesday, but luckily it didn't come to that, and the baby was doing great through all of this.

The bleeding stopped after a couple of hours, and I stayed at the hospital for 3 days and 2 nights for monitoring, and since there was no further incident, I was released this afternoon. I am now passing a little bit of old/brown blood and was told this would be normal for the next week but if I have bright red spotting to come back to the hospital. If I bleed like this again, I could end up in the hospital for more days, or worse, stay at the hospital until delivery, which my doctor would like to do at 37 weeks.

Because of my GD diagnosis and hypertension which could lead to preeclampsia, I was already expecting to deliver between 37-39 weeks so that isn't a shock, but my chance of having a C section is 50/50 at this point since my placenta can still move.

Naturally, I am very paranoid every time I go to the bathroom now, and am feeling like it is only a matter of time until something happens again. I am slightly comforted that I have a plan if something like this happens again, and that if I were to deliver early, the baby would have a better chance of surviving every week that goes by (starting at 28 weeks, which is next Monday for me) but I'm nervous that things won't wo

So at my 20 week scan my OB mentioned my placenta was covering the entire cervix opening. She mentioned that it could move up by 32 weeks, but she wasn't counting on it. My baby has been SO LOW this entire pregnancy and yesterday I went to a 3D scan and the tech mentioned the baby has her head down really low. She couldn't tell me anything else since she's not an OB, but would this make you think that baby could be keeping my placenta from moving up since her head is right there?

40+2 Positive birth story. OB missed it. β€œAdvanced maternal age” with no complications except outgrown placenta previa.

I’m 45 years old, conceived without interventions. Had placenta previa and a gruesome hemorrhage around 10 weeks. Otherwise, no problems. Baby is healthy; I am healthy! 12 hours of labor.

Went into labor around 8:45 pm, but I have had so many β€œpractice” contractions I wasn’t sure it was the real deal. I’m a low-key stoical kinda gal. After pacing and showering, I woke my husband at 2 am by asking, β€œHow do you feel about babies? (Good). Wanna have one?...tonight? (Yes). Wanna walk with me outside? (Huh?)” He excitedly jumped out of bed, I made him tell me I’m the most badass woman he’s ever known, and we walked outside in between contractions.

Told my husband not to drive like a bat out of hell, but he still clocked 70 mph in our 55 zone on the way to the hospital.

At only at 3 cm, they wouldn’t admit me, but I have the world’s most laid back OB who seems to trust me, so he kept me for observation. I mean, contractions at less than 4 minutes apart; when would I know to come back? I warned them I take for-evvvvver to get to a 5, but then I go 5-10-baby in like an hour. In previous labors, doctors/midwives almost missed it. (Spoiler: this OB did miss it).

Pain wasn’t like baby #1, in which I labored peacefully unmedicated for 22 hours in a zen state and announced labor wasn’t β€œthat bad.” Baby #2 was pitocin and induction, so by the end, I needed a small epidural. This baby #3. Whew. Pain. I asked for IV pain relief. Forget zen. After 10 minutes the nurse checked in, and I asked when the meds would work. Welp - they didn’t work. Okay, I want an epidural. Forget zen, again. I can hang tough for an hour, right? No choice anyway. Heh heh. (Spoiler: didn’t get epidural. No time).

About 45 minutes later, I tell the nurse I have to push. I’m a 9-10. She calls the OB who says 20 minutes. I poop the table. We are all polite and pretend this didn’t even happen. I grunt and softly moan like some forest animal. I apologize to the nurse for the drama (remember, I’m low-key). Everyone laughs because I am def not dramatic.

An unsuspecting medical school resident is wandering the hall and gets grabbed by the nurse frantically. He walks in, β€œHi, I’m Doctor....”

Me: I’m not not gonna push anymore! I think I peed. (Spoiler: it is a baby, not pee).

Unsuspecting resident: what’s going on? (Lifts sheet). OH, IT’S A HEAD! (Second push) IT’S A BABY!

OB comes in 3 minutes later. Now hospital debates who signs the birth certificate. Resident says he’s delivered babies before

C-Section/ Placenta Previa/ Past Birth Trauma

Hey all!

I know the title is a bit confusing, but those are the main topics in this (maybe) long winded post.

First, I’d like to start with my daughters birth that happened almost 8 years ago. She has a brain injury from a traumatic birth (medical malpractice), which has lead to an intellectual disability.

Now, I’m 8 months (32 weeks) pregnant with my second baby girl. At first, I was unsure of what would happen at birth. I wanted to go with the flow, and my plan was to have an unmediated hospital birth. My OB knows of my daughters HIE from my first (vaginal, medicated) delivery.

I have low papp A, so just as a precaution, I am doing serial ultrasounds and NSTs (every 2 weeks after 30 weeks) to check on baby. Baby is doing well, but I have placenta previa (which we just found out was detected on the 19 week ultrasound that my family drs office didn’t tell my OB). I’m on pelvic rest.

NOW MY ISSUE (sorta). Since I have PP, we had to book a c-section, just in case the placenta doesn’t move away from my cervix (it’s partial PP). My c-section is booked for January 18th, I’ll be 38+2. There is still a 50/50 chance of a vaginal birth, which was initially my plan... But since we booked the c-section, I’m a bit relieved that it’s sort of being forced on me in a way because I’m so worried about another birth injury (HIE is something I never knew about before I had my daughter but it has so many scary effects, I always urge people to educate themselves on it!), because they happen to anyone. I’m also terrified of being awake during a surgery like that (I get scared getting a filling/root canal), which seems to be my biggest worry. But I want baby to be healthy.

Also, side note, because of my previous birth, my OB said if there is any sort of heart rate drop in baby this time around if I was doing vaginal, it would be an immediate emergency c-section anyway.

I need tips, advice, and any c-section recovery tips.

GD and Placenta Previa

I was diagnosed with GD at 10.5 weeks and am 18.5 weeks now. I am able to control post-meal numbers with diet and exercise but do have to inject insulin at night for my fasting numbers. It took a while to find the right dosage, but I've been doing well the last couple of weeks.

As you all know, walking after a meal really helps, and I was walking a lot during the first few weeks. Then, when I was hiking around 13 weeks, I noticed bleeding. I panicked, thinking I was miscarrying, but it thankfully stopped. At my next ultrasound, my doctor told me I have borderline placenta previa and just to be cautious with my activities. Basically, if I find something causes spotting, don't do it.

So, I decided hours of hiking was bad and just stuck to neighborhood walks. Then, a week or two later, I noticed spotting again after walks and figured it was the hill I like to go up and down. So, I cut out the hill and stuck to flat ground. To compensate, I increased my pace but found fast walking even on flat ground caused spotting... Anyway, now I'm at the point where a 20-minute walk at a moderate pace around the house will cause spotting!!!

I know I could probably post this in a general pregnancy sub, but I figured the people here would understand better how important it is to us with GD to be able to exercise and control our blood sugar levels. I'm nervous how I will get through the next 20+ weeks and increasing insulin resistance if I can't exercise properly. Has anyone else had to deal with this or something similar? Are there any super low-impact exercises (besides swimming) people can recommend? Or will I just need to eventually cut more carbs? I just hope I won't have to increase the number of insulin injections each day...

I see my doctor again next Monday for my anatomy scan and will ask his opinion as well, but honestly, probably most of the best advice has come from this sub haha.

Placenta Previa

Hello,

I recently had my first OB appointment this week and found out I have complete previa. Sorry if I am using the wrong terms. I am only eleven weeks along so they’re going to another ultrasound in a few weeks to see if the placenta has moved.

I am just curious about what other women in my situation did with a similar diagnosis? I am unsure what I can do with exercise (am I limited to just walking? Or can I ride my bike, etc).

I also wondered if there is anything I shouldn’t do in my daily life that may increase risks of bleeding? My mom suggested I don’t vacuum or lift laundry baskets. Thankfully this is my first child so I am not chasing another toddler or child around.

I read that this issue usually resolves itself which gives me a lot of hope. Even if it doesn’t resolve itself, I have read that many women have healthy pregnancies.

I am on light duty so I will not be able to work. I am a healthcare worker (nursing aide and an Occupational Therapist) so they are not going to be able to work with me since I am not full time.

Please don’t write anything negative. I have another health issue that may become a concern later on so I’m already really nervous.

Placenta Previa experiences?

EDIT Autocorrect

This isn't the first time I went head on with the doctors and was right. The first time, I told them my first child had acid reflux. I was right. This time, I told them I felt I had previa ... considering the bleeding that took place after sex was heavier than normal.

Three abdominal ultrasounds didn't show it, but one transvaginal ultrasound at 24 weeks did. Full coverage.

My OB said it may resolve but given how late in the pregnancy I am, this is doubtful. Unless it moves by 32 weeks, I'll be a c-section. No biggie. I was kind of pushing for that from the getgo.

Thing is my job is strenuous. I work in a poultry plant. I've spotted several times at work.

Any other fit-pregnant-placenta-previa mamas out there? What’re you doing to stay active and safe?

What can you do with complete placenta previa?

My OB has not been helpful about this. She says I don't exactly need complete bed rest, but pelvic rest, low-intensity exercise, no lifting. I usually do HIIT on an exercise bike, weight lifting, and bodyweight exercises. I've been doing very slow biking on the exercise bike, but it's so boring.

I'm at 14 weeks and off meds for bipolar disorder. Exercise helps keep my mental state stable. Does anyone have any tips besides stretching and yoga?

Complete placenta previa, how long did your bleed take to stop?

I’m currently in the hospital, 24wks, admitted for bleeding. The bleeding only starts whenever I get up to go pee, when I’m laying in bed it stops.

I was shopping at michaels when I looked down and saw blood down my leg (was wearing a dress). Pretty scary but everything’s looking good, baby’s good, cervix is still closed. I’m just basically here until the bleeding stops completely.

It’s been about 12 hours for me, I’m wondering how long others were having to wait for bleeding to stop? The nurse told me she’s seen it take about 24 hours.

The bleeding is totally painless. Before they had said I had a low lying placenta, now apparently it’s a complete placenta previa. Baby is still kicking away.

Placenta previa and tubal ligation

I'm 21 weeks and have been told I have placenta previa, I don't know yet how "complete" it is, my ultrasound is next week to confirm, but based off of what my OB could see, she's put me on pelvic rest and I'm not allowed to lift anything over 15lbs including my toddler, groceries, laundry baskets...

I'm a mom of 3 and this is my first time having this issue, my OB told me to expect a "Big, scary bleed" that while serious, should just be calmly dealt with and should go straight to the hospital. I've also been told that if the placenta doesn't move I'll be sectioned at 37 weeks. I was PLANNING on a section at 39 so that's not a big deal but when I started taking to her about my tubal (hubby and I have decided we're done after this one) Things got weird. She said she was happy to do one for me and totally understood, but didn't want to decide "now" in case I have "an extremely premature baby" and want another one. Implying that the baby doesn't make it, or something??

This whole thing was a bit of a shock, she sent me a voicemail telling my I had PP, after my last ultrasound, but gave no other warnings or instructions, so between the time of her calling me and my in office appt, I did all the lifting and had sex.

So to walk in and be told to "have a bag packed and ready" because I may go that early caused me to ugly cry in the car later.

Has anyone dealt with this???

Thanks.

TLDR: ob doesn't want to decide on a tubal in case baby dies before hand. ((I guess?!))

Placenta previa

How many of y’all had placenta previa at around 12 weeks that ended up resolving itself? Did you still need a c section? I had my 12 week appointment yesterday and it looks like my placenta is low but not at all covering my cervix. She said just the lip of the placenta is in a not so ideal spot. She almost guaranteed that it would move but I’m just looking for some of you who had a similar experience!

Placenta Previa Shifting

Hey ladies! I just had my 20 week ultrasound. Baby looks healthy and we found out we are having a little girl! We are very excited for out little one.

My doctor went over the results from the ultrasound and said that my placenta is over my cervix. He said there is a chance it could shift over the next few weeks and that we will just need to keep an eye in it. Have any if you had placenta previa that shifted later in your pregnancy? I feel like I'm not seeing any info on this and I'm wondering if he is just trying to keep me calm.

Thanks for your info!

Placenta Previa

After some very light spotting (which freaked me out really bad), my midwife sent me for an ultrasound.

Turns out I have placenta Previa. Since they noticed it early (17 weeks), they are hopeful it will resolve itself.

Now I’m finding myself even more anxious / stressed because going on modified work duty means much less hours and I’m about 150 hours away from making my maternity leave minimum requirements.

Anyone else experience this condition? Did it resolve itself?

Placenta Previa at 11 weeks?

I had my NT scan today at 11+3 and baby thankfully looked great. But they diagnosed me with complete placenta previa. I had complete previa with my first as well with no bleeding that finally resolved at 36 weeks. I saw a nurse practitioner for my appointment today (wasn’t a fan of her my first pregnancy) and she didn’t give me many details but put me on pelvic rest until we check again at 20 weeks. I’m frustrated thought because most things I’ve read say PP can’t be diagnosed until around 20 weeks because so many placentas are low in early pregnancy. The OB I saw at my first appointment said the same thing. Anyone have experience with having placenta previa twice (specifically complete previa, which is a little less likely to move)?

Spent 3 days in Hospital Due to Placenta Previa (All is good now)

Hey everyone, I am a FTM and just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with bleeding due to Placenta Previa in their late second trimester, and if they went on to have additional bleeding later in pregnancy.

So at the risk of TMI/Content Warning: On early Tuesday morning this week I had a scary heavy bleed that I noticed after getting up to use the bathroom. When I turned to flush, I noticed blood in the toilet with a couple of small clots, then the blood started gushing. I did not have any cramping or pain with the bleeding but I naturally thought the worst. I knew that I had a low lying placenta (diagnosed at 24 weeks) but since I am already seeing Maternal Fetal Medicine doctors due to light hypertension and found out at 26 weeks that I have gestational diabetes, any worries I may have had about low lying placenta were not at the forefront of my mind, and I didn't guess that this was causing the bleed.

I have never had any spotting or anything during the entire pregnancy. I woke my husband and we decided on an ambulance and the doctors are treating my low lying placenta as if it is Placenta Previa. The initial concern was the possibility of an emergency C-section on Tuesday, but luckily it didn't come to that, and the baby was doing great through all of this.

The bleeding stopped after a couple of hours, and I stayed at the hospital for 3 days and 2 nights for monitoring, and since there was no further incident, I was released this afternoon. I am now passing a little bit of old/brown blood and was told this would be normal for the next week but if I have bright red spotting to come back to the hospital. If I bleed like this again, I could end up in the hospital for more days, or worse, stay at the hospital until delivery, which my doctor would like to do at 37 weeks.

Because of my GD diagnosis and hypertension which could lead to preeclampsia, I was already expecting to deliver between 37-39 weeks so that isn't a shock, but my chance of having a C section is 50/50 at this point since my placenta can still move.

Naturally, I am very paranoid every time I go to the bathroom now, and am feeling like it is only a matter of time until something happens again. I am slightly comforted that I have a plan if something like this happens again, and that if I were to deliver early, the baby would have a better chance of surviving every week that goes by (starting at 28 weeks, which is next Monday for me) but I'm nervous that things won't work out an

Any moms diagnosed with placenta previa?

At my 20 week appointment they gave me this diagnosis. The placenta may still move but I will need ultrasounds at every visit to see if this happens. Just wondering if any moms have been diagnosed with that and the placenta ended up moving? Not excited about needing a c-section!

Experiences with complete placenta previa?

I was diagnosed with complete placenta previa about a week ago at 12 weeks. I’m just wondering if anyone here would like to share their experiences with that and if it was corrected by the time they were full-term or if they needed a C-section.
