Marginal Previa at 18 week scan

I just got the results from my 18 week (gender reveal) scan and found out I have a marginal previa and may have to have a C-section. Anyone with experience with marginal/full placenta previa - advice/insights would be greatly appreciated!

  • I had a low lying placenta with my oldest at 18weeks, rechecked at 28weeks and it had resolved itself.

  • I had that with my first and it moved up by my 32 week scan. My OB said it does in like 98% of cases. It’s more common than you’d think.

  • I'm sorry you found this out, hopefully it resolves and all is ok.  This is why it's the 20 week anatomy scan is just that - to find out if there are any arising issues with the baby - not a gender scan.  
  • As others have said, the vast majority of marginal previa will resolve itself by third tri. That being said, I am now almost 37w and mine did not resolve. Your doctor can tell you the risks associated with a vaginal birth depending on how low your placenta actually is.
