I had a large amount of bleeding a few days ago. So bad I thought I lost my baby. It's still there and the heart is beating fine 174 BPM. My ob said that he thinks the reason for the bleeding is that the placenta is partialluy on my cervix. He also said that he thinks it's attached to my c section scar. He said that it may correct itself as I get further along, but he took me out of work and said no lifting. Not even my 30 lb two year old. I am only 9 1/2 weeks. I'm wondering if this makes me a higher risk for m/c? In all the books I've read it says this happens in the 2nd and 3rd trimester. I'm really worried. I haven't had anymore bleeding since the 12th.

If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it!!!

TIA

Tia,
I am at 26 weeks pregnant, and I have had placenta pervia since week 16. It could be that, and I pray that he is right. and I also pray you do not have a m/c

Placeta pervia can lift once the baby grows. My little one has decided to stay put on my cervix, I am a little more the half covered, and it is scary to see all the blood.

Gosh that seems really early for it to be placanta pervia!! I have hard that at 9 week it could be implantation bleeding too. Well know I hope for the best for you.

April

My doctor discovered my complete previa at 18 weeks. So far I have had no bleeding (pray I don't). I have been put on complete vaginal rest. Which is a bummer cause I'm having a real high sexual drive. I sooooooo want to attack my b/f. I have another appt. on May 15th and will then be scheduled for another ultrasound to see if it has migrated north (pray it has for my sexual insanity).

I also had a large amount of bleeding about 9 weeks and thought I was m/c again but I am now 15 weeks and everything seems to be alright except that I still have a large amount of blood and clotting in my uterus with the baby but my doctor says that it should be absorbed before it really effects the baby. I hope everything continues alright and everything I have heard says that this early the placenta has a better chance of reattaching and continuing through normally!

The normal diagnosis of placenta previa occurs during routine second-trimester ultrasound, the placenta is observed to cover the cervix in 5 to 20% of pregnancies. However, because of the growth of the uterus throughout pregnancy, more than 90% of early placenta previas convert to a normal location by the time of delivery. Which is great new for those of us who are diagnosed early on and are concerned with long term outcomes. Only about 10 percent of women who have placenta previa noted on ultrasound at midpregnancy still have it when they deliver their baby. Again more confirmation that this will self resolve. Bare in mind that the fetus is only about 1 inch in size at 10 weeks, which leads me to think that the bleeding is more likely due to other sources. Patients presenting with vaginal bleeding before the first trimester are more commonly diagnosed with other conditions. The normal error rate for misdiagnosis is about 20% for placenta previa diagnosed even in the second trimester (more encouraging news). So my dear, bleeding is never optimal but it can still mean a perfectly healthy baby. The problem normally isnít with the placenta position but rather the placenta detachment or uterine blood clots. The placenta can detach from the uterine wall causing bleeding. In a lot of cases women simply suffer from blood clots that don't affect the fetus at all (but are enough to make any sane women worry). This too has a way of resolving itself. The probability still exists for miscarriage but this is probably at any stage of pregnancy. In some cases women continue with the previa but are restricted from certain activities (normally anything that would cause stress to the vaginal/cervical/abdominal/uterine areas) and are delivered via C-section but essentially go on to have healthy babies. In the more complicated cases women develop the more severe form of previa (accrete). This can lead to a whole host of other problems (not limited to the need for emergent hysterectomies in order to prevent fatal hemorrhaging and in rare cases death)Öat this point there is no need to worry about ANY of that. I would recommend you follow your OB/Gynís orders and not engage in activities that would cause stress to your vaginal/abdominal/etc areas. With the appropriate monitoring you should be just fine. That is not to suggest you wonít be without worry or problems as you may in fact have previa that lasts into term pregnancy but like many women you could be just fine. God bless you.

Hi Sweetie,

Iím also going this and itís so frustrating when the doctors ignore you. Iím dealing with military doctors and they all have the care-free attitude. I was sent to a specialist who discovered so much more than they did. Now that the doctors know I have an issue they are not doing much to help me. I believe I should be on bed rest due to my research. Iím 30 weeks and I was told to come back in month to see if the placenta will move. This has been an issue since Dec 05. I underwent IVF so I think it had something to do with that.

Overall I think yours have come too soon. Please stay on top of this and donít just let it pass. There may some good doctors out there but I pray you can at least get the proper care from one. I will keep you all posted on how my baby girl progresses.

Update on me. I'm now 15 weeks and 3 days. I've had a couple more bleeding episodes since that big one at 9 weeks. The last one just Thursday the 18th. All the u/s say placenta previa. The good news is that I think it's moving up. The baby is fine. I have been feeling movement for about a month now. I go tomorrow for a follow up. I hope they'll do another u/s. Now that I'm out of work, I am on lifting restrictions and I guess what it called pelvic rest. The doctor told me not to have sex. It's killing my DH, but for me I know it's for the best and I want my baby to stay full term. That might be a really good Christmas present for DH. LOL. Sorry for rambling on an on, just wanted to give those interested an update.

Dava
