MamaW82:I had a low lying placenta with DD#1. It moved by 28 weeks. Did they tell you how low or if it is partial or complete previa?
Same here. I was on light duty (no heavy lifting, pelvic rest) for 6-8 weeks. By the time of my follow-up, the placenta had migrated clear of my cervix.
Try not to worry too much between now and your follow up u/s. I know that's easier said than done, but there is a very good chance the issue will correct itself.
Wezzy13:They just said it was low and Pavic rest for four to six weeks
I have a low lying placenta, 1.5 centimeters from the cervix as of my ultrasound 3 weeks ago. Doctor put my on pelvic rest and told me to take it easy, but she said it will 100% move up as the uterus expands, probably by my next ultrasound at 24 weeks, at which point she'll lake me off of pelvic rest.
Seriously, its not a big deal, just take it easy for a few weeks, and before you know it the placenta will have moved up.
Don't freak out yet. I was told at my 16 u/s that my placenta was low but they weren't ready to diagnos previa. I was also told 98% of low placentas move up on their own. I have another u/s in a few weeks at 24 weeks and they will keep repeating to monitor if it hasn't.
I was told to "take it easy"...no heavy lifting, no exercising, no jumping or another strenuous activity. I was also told it was a good sign that I hadn't had any spotting.
