  • congrats Mandi
    at my 20 wk scan I was told my placenta was low and just to be careful and if it hadn't moved by 34wks I'd have to have a moved itself but I had a c-section anyway due to different reasons. I wouldn't worry too much I was told bleeding can happen just try and rest up as much as you can, not easy with a toddler I suspect.

  • Thanks ladies!!! There just aren't many stories accompanied by spotting and/or bleeding.

    No ~ it's not easy with a 2 year old. I'm on complete pelvic rest. No lifting ~ especially Taylor. (try explaining that to a 2 year old)

    Then when I call my OB's office with questions ~ I get the nurse who has to write down my questions ~ get with my OB ~ then call me back.

    When she calls me back ~ she doesn't even answer my questions.

  • It must be so hard Mandi, a 2year old just doesn't understand that mommy can't pick her up but do whatever you can...its so frustrating when you can't get proper answers to your questions particularly when its to do with bleeding, how more serious can that be for a pregnant woman? stay strong
    bleeding is a worry with previa that's what my consultant said that's why rest is ordered and c-sections are done but most of the time the placenta moves up.. it was only when it happened to me and when i asked around did I hear of similar stories.

    Keep us updated and congrats again

  • I'm sure it will move up as you get bigger. I had it with my first two, but bleeding only with my first. They did a few extra U/S to make sure it was growing out of the way and it did. I had vaginal deliveries with both!

    Good luck and I'm sure it will be fine! Its very rare for the placenta to stay down over the cervix in the third trimester!

  • I had placenta previa with my last pg and was told the same thing. I also had a little bit of spotting. But it moved up as baby grew and I had a vaginal birth without any complications
