    Ultrasound on Monday shows I have partial placenta previa, which means my placenta is partially covering my cervix. 90% of patients with this have no problem as the placenta moves off the cervix on it's own. The other 10% have to have a C-section though :p. So as of now its just a waiting game. Nothing I did caused it, just happens sometimes, and the reason the uterus will hopefully move on its own is because blood flow around the cervix is not as good as other locations. So I'll have to go in for extra ultrasounds, like one a month (silver lining I guess, lol) and if by 35 weeks the placenta doesn't move on it's own I'll be picking my little girls birth day (other silver lining I guess? lol).

    So i'm not super worried, Doctor said only real risks are bleeding if something happens to the placenta, but that risk doesn't come into play really until I start dilating, and by that time if I'm still at risk we'll be having a whole new ball game anyways... So I suppose I'm just mostly annoyed right now and praying babies placenta decides to move to better grazing ground! :dohh:

    Hi

    this happened to me with DS. At the 20 week scan the placenta was completely covering the cervix so I was convinced |I would be having a c section. However by 33 weeks when I had my next scan it had moved 180 degrees and was at the top - I couldn't believe it.

    Hope all goes well for you.

    Hm... that sounds not so great indeed, but there's hope it'll resolve itself, right? Good luck :D

    I had this with my son, mine was in the unlucky percentage that didnt move, but all was still fine, no bleeds and a caesarean at 38 weeks, the caesarean was a doddle too.

    OMG! :) Well I admit I don't feel so random now, I guess I've joined the placenta previa club! lol :haha: And sounds like I'm doing good, I haven't had any bleeding at all. And as I said I'm mostly annoyed that I might have to change my birth plan and of course not thrilled about a C-section, though they do so many here in the states I'm not worried about it going wrong :winkwink:

    We will have to update this thread as we get farther along and see who's placenta ends up moving :D Good luck to all of you too!

    My mom had this. Was on bed rest the entire pregnancy and it ended up moving on its own towards the end. My sis was diva right from the beginning and made a fashionably-late entrance about 2 weeks overdue! My mom even took us to the zoo on her due date in hopes of getting things moving. lol
