Hi girls. I was told today that I have complete placenta previa. I am praying it resolves on its own but am also very terrified. I did too much googling and found some scary stuff about it. I have another u/s at 32 weeks to check on it but if it's still there my dr said she will do a c-section at 36 weeks. I'm very afraid though and the BTDT stories make me feel better.
CONGRATS on your baby girl!!!! YAY! Also YES I WAS TOLD I HAD A COMPLETE PLACENTA PREVIA TOO! Mines resolved on its own. It moved up the doctor said. Well actually my doctor had me see a high risk doctor when i was told i had it and i had another u/s. When i had the u/s with the high risk doctor he didn't see a previa. So he looked at my previous u/s and said everything had looked fine then too & that the u/s tech was wrong! So i wouldn't worry to much til your next u/s! Even if you do have one it just means you'll need a c-section. I hope it all resolves tho for ya!
Congrats on having a girl!!! My friend had pp when she was pregnant with her son!! It didn't resolve until almost 35 weeks but it did eventually go away!! STOP GOOGLING things they only make matters worse.. Hun just hang in there and take it easy!!

I had a very low lying placenta and as a result I got lots of u/s to monitor it. The good news is that it eventually moved on its own. I was told to take it easy and was put on pelvic rest as a precaution. Try not to obsess over it. Enjoy the extra u/s'.
My mom had complete pp with me and she went on bedrest for the whole third trimester. It ended up resolving on its own but she still had a c-section because of failure to progress 24 hours after her water had broken. Don't worry and yes, STOP GOOGLING!
Thanks everyone for all of the encouragement, I really appreciate it & it makes me feel so much better. I've been taking it easy. I cut back at work even more and no longer do 12 hour shifts. I am praying it moves on its own and if I have to go on bedrest then I will. I just want my baby girl to be here safely and healthy!!!!
Congrats! I was told the same thing, and was told there was a 50% chance it would correct its self. I vaginally delivered my little guy at 41 weeks! Just remember either way, in the end it's about getting your daughter out safely. It will all work out great!
