Grade 4 Placenta Previa


Hi, sorry if this has been covered a million times!
Just looking for anyone who has this?
I had a scan at 31 weeks and sadly it's still covering the internal os and anterior too which will make a section very difficult meaning I have to have a general. I'm so gutted about not being awake to see my baby born but not a lot I can do to change that
I've been admitted three times with bleeds, usually just a couple of nights and they have stopped by themselves thankfully! The last one just over two weeks ago was the worst yet, although that stopped by itself too.
I discharged myself against their wish to keep me in till delivery (I have a young boy at home and couldn't face the prospect of staying in what would then have been about 8 weeks!)
I'm pleased to say I've had no more bleeds and I have another scan booked on the 4th April (I think this is a growth scan?) and consulatant afterwards.
They have hinted that from 34 weeks plus the chance of bleeds is probabable and I should consider staying in from then till delivery... Have any of you experienced this before, either the bleeds at that point, or being admitted early on?
Whenever I ask the health professionals I'm just told to keep an open mind to get to 34 weeks which would be a bonus! I had steriod jabs at my last hospital stay incase of early delivery which didn't happen thank god! lol
The info on the net is fairly scary about major Placenta previa so I'm trying not to really google too much.
Thanks girls xx

Spanky, I'm not as far along as you are so I am hoping my placenta still moves up. But I think you have done really well to get this far and stay calm and collected. Especially with the bleeds

Sorry, I can't help you more. I hope that you can discuss things with your consultants in more detail and come to a good arrangement as to when to move into hospital to be safe

I'm sat in hospital now with the exact same thing. They won't let me leave either although they have dangled a carrot that if I have no bleeding for a week they will let me go out for 2 hours. Been here since Friday and im bored to tears already.

Didn't know that I would have to have a c section under general nobody told me that my placenta is anterior and completely covering the cervix. Looks like I'm wearing a big internal nappy when they scan me.
