    Default Placenta Previa



    Hello ladies well our 20 week scan has been and gone (22 Weeks today) and the diagnosis of this Placenta Previa not just a low Placenta but it is totally covering the cervix at the moment will check on it again at 24 week scan and then again at 32 weeks to see what is happening.
    Due to IVF they say the bubs just implanted low nothing else caused it.

    All they can tell us at the moment that it may possibly require hospitilization for me before the birth for observation and also 90 % chance of a C Section as when Placenta is this low not much chance of it moving out the way for a natural birth. Also there is a risk of major bleeding so nothing too strenuous including intercourse until D Day which will involve about 3 Dr's not just 1 to attend to me and bubs as it affects us both apparently.



    With just 7 weeks left of work I hope to have some time relaxing at home before more drama.

    Am finishing work at 7 mths due to my job being quite demanding physically.

    Just curious to hear if anyone else has had this condition.

    Chele - congrates all is okay with your bubba. PP is a concern but keep asking you DR to check you frequently.

    I have been thinking of you - maybe post this in 2nd trimemster thread too ... just take things easy and one day at a time. There have been a few ladies with this ... just posts in here don't always get seen if they drop of the 'new posts' 1st pages.

    hope you get some answers ... did you search BB forums ... maybe a moderator can help you find some old threads.

    Chele, 2 of the girls in my belly buddies group had placenta previa and they both delivered beautiful, healthy bubbas via c-section.

    Thee is still a posibility of it clearing the cervix before delivery as most of the growth of the upper part of the uterus occurs in the last half of your pregnancy.
    Good luck!!

    Chele - I have a low lying placenta but my OB isnt worried at this stage and will send me for another scan around 35wks to determine if I have to have a c-section. She said that 80% of the time, the placenta does move as the uterus grows. Ive had some bleeding with this pg and have been told to take it easy. Also dh and I havnet DTD in two months as we are a bit nervous of causing another bleed.

    I hope it all goes well for you,
    Lisa

    Heya Lisa

    Yeah like you say not too concerned at moment and an extra scan at 32 weeks is booked to review further. It is too early to tell at this stage but it is good to hear form others hey.

    Trish your boys look so adorable in your ticker

    Hey yeah I know me bad I keep forgetting to come back LOL

    Had 24 week ultrasound yesterday and all is still the same with Placenta but they don't expect much else until the 32 week scan then they might see a difference.

    Other than that all is fabulous bubs is kicking like mad and is 723 grams and give or take a day or two either side from US measurements is perfect size for its age so getting really excited now ♥

    Chele - THere is always a chance your placenta will move, I really hope it does for you. My neice`s placenta was exactly same position as yours but she was having regular checks due to the PP and a stitch in her cervix, her placenta did eventually move but it wasn`t until she had the 32 week ultrasound, she went on to labour her baby.

    Good luck to you I hope it all works out well
