Optimistic: The uterus has a lot of growing to do from 15 weeks on. The placenta can migrate away from the cervix as the uterus grows. If you experience vaginal bleeding you should see your doctor but you should be optimistic that the condition will very likely resolve on its own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes, possible!: 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.

I was diagnosis with placenta previa after some spotting. I'm 15 weeks and still spotting-light brown. Is this normal? If this will correct when?
Placenta previa: I'm not sure of your question - is placenta previa normal - NO. Is bleeding with previa normal - yes. Spotting just light brown sounds like either old blood or very slow bleed, which is better than brisk, bright red bleeding. Some previas "correct" themselves - that is the placenta moves away from the cervix area. This can happen at any time during the pregnancy.It has to be followed VERY CLOSELY! ...Read more
Do many woman die from placenta previa? I have a complete previa and am terrified i will die during surgery!
<1% risk of death.: If you have never had a D&C nor c-section before, your risk of placenta previa/accreta is <1%, as is your risk of dying during such delivery in the us (i.e. With modern care at a tertiary hospital with expert surgeons and a large blood bank). If you have had a D&C or c-section, the prognosis is much poorer, with up to 7% risk of death from previa accreta even with the best of care. ...Read more
