Pregnant after IF

placenta previa question

Hey ladies. I ended up in the er last night because I was bleeding. The ob thought it was the sch but we also found out baby a's placenta is slightly overlying my cervix. I got rhogam because we dont know if the bleeding is sch or the previa. My question is, for those of you that had a marginal previa, did it migrate away from the cervix and if so, around what week? Also, until it migrated, did you bleed the whole time? I'm 12w1d today. Cervix is closed & 4cm with light bleeding. Thanks!

Re: placenta previa question

  • I've had a placenta previa. Last ultrasound at 27 weeks it was borderline between low-lying and previa. It sounds like it's still possible for mine to move up further. I haven't had any bleeding, but have been on pelvic rest since 16 (?) weeks when it was diagnosed.
    Married 8/2008. IVF with PGD March 2013.
    3/22 ER: 25R, 20M, 15F. 9 genetically normal, and 3 survived to Day 5
    3/27 ET: transferred 1 embryo, beta 9dp5dt=163, 12dp5dt=639
    4/25 1st ultrasound at 7 weeks = identical twins with heartbeats?!!!

  • I had partial placenta previa with DS#1. They found mine at my 18 w a/s, we watched it till the end and it didn't move, :/ the c/s wasn't bad and as my OB said it was the worst case scenario, healthy baby is the goal. Anyway, I didn't have any bleeding with the previa, but this pg I had a SCH and bled at 10-12 weeks. I hate you are going through all this. Hope they both resolve soon.

  • I was just diagnosed with complete placenta previa. I had some spotting at 10 weeks (for about 5 days) and then last week I had a bleed followed by 5 days of spotting. My Dr. thinks it will move since it is still so early. She also said I should expect to bleed the whole time :(

  • I had a marginal previa in my last pregnancy & it had moved by early 3rd tri. This time things look similar. FX it will move for you too, it just may take some time.

  • Lurking, hope you don't mind. I had the same thing with my pregnancy. It was discovered at 17 weeks after I woke up bleeding on a business trip (talk about a scare!!). Less than 2 weeks later it had corrected itself. I bled initially on my business trip, it stopped quickly but would re-appear on and off for a few days if I overdid it. I found the best thing was to lay low! Good luck!

  • Thanks ladies! I saw my ob yesterday and he's optimistic it'll move since we are seeing it so early. He didn't take me off work but said to take it easy when I can and to stop if I have cramping that's bad & persists. He also said to expect bleeding off & on till its gone. So far it seems I bleed the worst in the morning when I first get up & tapers to spotting throughout the day.

  • I was diagnosed with a partial previa at 14 weeks because of spotting.  At my anatomy scan it was still partial.  At 30 weeks it had migrated far enough away from cervix that I am all clear for a vaginal delivery.  My OB said over 90% of previa's correct themselves!  Good luck!
