Many possibilities: Bleeding is not usually a complication of placenta accreta (as stated in a previous answer), so you have to consider other causes of bleeding at 28 weeks. Anything from a vaginal infection, to cervical weakness (incompetence), to preterm labor are all possibilities, among others. You need to be evaluated by your OB to determine the cause of the bleeding.
