I have placenta previa and I am 23 weeks and 4 days along. I am indefinitely in the hospital in toronto Mt Sinai, and need a c section. It will be my first time having a c section; we are hoping I make it to 35-36 or later weeks. I am on modified bed rest and i was bleeding brown blood and clots, but it has stopped now.. the placenta is covering the cervix and the dr says it probably wont move because of the positioning.. the tear in the placenta is right above the cervix so I may spot on and off the whole pregnancy. I am 4 hrs away from home. I was shipped up here by ambulance from my hometown hospital. Has anyone else made it to full term with placenta previa?? Anyone ever experienced placenta abruption and what was it like? Can my water still break? Could I end up going into preterm labor still? I am worried. Ty
HI mercedes if you still around Id love to know how was your experience with pp.. i just read your post and it made me worry a lot but hoping everything went well with you and baby. ive been told i have placenta previa.. this is my third baby due in August.. my doctor told me about remove the uterus if necessary. I am 26 weeks pregnant and just waiting for the placenta to move.
My wife had a placenta previa, considered quite low. She was hospitalised at 25 weeks until 29w and gave birth at 29w and 2 days. My baby boy is now 3 months and is very healthy, like a full term baby!
My advice: try to stay laying on your bed as much as possible. If possible stay there all day. It's very important for people with placenta previa. You will reduced considerably the risk of giving birth prematurely. Also avoid travelling, especially car travel.
