Hi..I'm from the Jan DCC and I don't know if I would be considered high risk but I just wanted to ask if any of you girls had a placenta previa during early pregnancy and did it correct itself, or if you still have it? What are your symptoms. I have a partial placenta previa but I was told at 17 weeks that I had an anterior placenta and it wasn't even close to my cervix so I was given the "ok" for a vbac? your inputs are appreciated..

If its not close to your cervix then you are good to go.
I don't think it will ruin your chances of vbac

Alot of times the placenta is close or partially covering the opening (cervix) early on and then as pregnancy progresses it moves up. I had placenta previa with Crystal which caused alot of bleeding and annoyance but it moved up and became an anterior placenta. Which I had with my first, so that was no biggie. The only poopy thing about anterior is the kicks and that are muffled and not as felt as if it was posterior

Good luck on the VBAC

I was told that my placenta was laying too low, and this was at an early stage. It eventually moved up on it's own.

Hi,

All situations are different. As long as your placenta is more than 2 cm's away from yur cervix, doc's wil most likely allow a vaginal birth. I have a complete anterior previa that started as a partial but moved the wrong way They say 90% of the time your placenta will migrate by 34 weeks. So have no fear, you sound good to go!

Your doctor will monitor you and the previa to confirm the movement. Most times they move by 30 weeks. I was diagnosed early with Jordyn 14 weeks and had bleeding beginning at 15 weeks (they thought I was miscarrying the bleeding was so bad).

With Caden I had a full anterior previa. They were actually concerned with the placement because I was having a c-sect and they thought they would not be able to do the transverse cut. Fortunately we were off enough that we were able to do that.

As far as the previa it becomes dangerous when it is too close or covering the Os portion of the cervix.

Normally with a previa you are placed on pelvic rest if there is reason for worry. In both my of pg's with previa I was unable to have sex for way too long.
