Can placenta previa move closer to rather than away from cervix over time? I had low-lying placenta @14w, marginal [email protected], partial [email protected]?
Had inc. placenta previa at 16 weeks, moved up around 21 wks (3cm+) now at almost 32 wks u/s showing 1.5cm fr cervix. why did it move down again?
Doesn’t move: The placenta does not actually move. It is attached to the uterus. As the uterus grows the placenta can be pulled safely away from the cervix. In some cases it does not. It just depends on where the placenta is attached. In general it needs to be more than 2 cm from the cervix to permit vaginal delivery ...Read more
Placenta previa last u/s at 34 wks. Currently 35+ weeks & i feel lots of pressure on cervix from the baby, should I be aware of anything? Nocurntrestric
Bleeding: Watch for bleeding. It is very normal to feel pressure about this time. The most common description i hear is 'i think the baby is going to fall out' be aware of bleeding with the previa. Do not let anyone check you unless they know you have the previa. That could cause serious bleeding. ...Read more
15weeks pregnant. My doctor said my placenta is on my cervix. Does that mean placenta previa? Is it concering?
Placenta: Yes, it means placenta pre via. However, you are so early on in pregnancy that the placenta may move up and get away from the cervix allowing you to deliver naturally. You need ultrasounds through your pregnancy. You will probably be advised not to have sex with the placenta laying low like it is now. ...Read more
I am 31 weeks pregnant with a complete placenta previa. What is the likelihood that it will migrate away from the cervix at this point?
Doctor said that my placenta is attached near to my cervix. Is that means i can have placenta previa? Is that means c-section? I'm only 5months.
Too soon: At 5 months, it's too soon to say if your placenta will still be attached near your cervix when you are near to term. Sometimes, when the placenta is adjacent to or bordering the cervix at 5 months, the uterus grows and the placenta is far enough away at the time of delivery from the cervix that you can safely have a vaginal delivery! ...Read more
Bleeding and Cntrxns: Previa: Placenta overlies the cervix/birth canal. Gr 1 means placenta is close, Gr 4 means it's directly overlying/blocking the baby's exit -- high chance of preterm labor & bleeding; you'd need a C/S at 36-37wks. More common in woman w/ hx of C/S & smoking. Not much you can do but wait. If dx'ed early, the uterus still grows/stretches and a placenta can migrate away even in 3rd tri. Follow w/ US. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can marginal placenta previa cause placental abruption? What are the statistics on marginal previa moving after 20 weeks?
Cervix and placenta:
Will move apart
as a balloon expands, (uterus), points on the balloon move apart, this will likely occur as the uterus grows, if no bleeding, little risk of harm. Ask your doctor to be sure.
Previa can create a type of partial abruption, along the edge of the attachment. ...Read more
No cramping per se: Placenta previa is not known to cause cramping of its own. Plus, only much later in pregnancy will it become clear, whether what seems a placenta obstructing the inner opening of the cervical canal will remain in that place and not give entirely way. Especially if there is no bleeding this location of the placenta would not be the first item on a list of potential causes of cramping. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

MFM evaluation: Consider asking for a referral to a maternal fetal medicine specialist. Your situation sounds quite high risk especially when you use phrases like massive bleeding. Your doctor may want to consider keeping you in the hospital now that the baby has reached viability. The chances of previa resolution will vary depending on the exact location and will vary from person to person ...Read more

Recently found out im 13weeks pregnant that im bleeding cause the placenta is blocking my cervix... Is there anything I can do to fix this before baby?
Placenta previa: Placenta previa is a condition where the placenta grows over the opening to the cervix (i.e. "previous to" or before the fetus). This can result in bleeding and, if not carefully managed, can threaten the health of both mom and baby. Dr. Lewis is exactly right: see your OB and carefully follow their advice to the letter, which may include bed-rest and certainly a c-section. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Absolutely: What you describe is called placentia previa. It often causes painless vaginal spotting but can also cause crampy pain. With this condition, the placenta can separate from the uterus as the cervix dilates at term, leading to significant bleeding at delivery and risk to the mother and child. An ultasound is needed prior to delivery to determine placental location and risk for mother and baby. ...Read more
Can a low lying placenta, possibly covering cervix be cause for spotting and pressure in vaginal area while urinating in early pregnancy?
