Don't Give Up!: You should get the advice of 2 specialists: a fertility specialist to check if you have any antibodies, coagulation disorders, hormone problems, fibroids, etc that are complicating your pregnancies. Just in case, you should consider consulting with a geneticist (it would really help if the miscarriages were genetically tested). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Vasa Previa: This is a dangerous condition in pregnancy where the implantation of the umbilical cord is in the membranes of the placenta rather than in the placenta itself.Therefore if the membranes rupture as they do with the onset of labor, the rupture may occur at the site of the cord implantation and rupture the vessels feeding oxygen and blood flow to the fetus prior to its birth!fortunately its rare. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I lost my baby at 39 weeks due to vasa previa. This was not detected in any ultrasounds. I wanted to know how difficult is it to detect this.?
It is difficult: Vasa previa can easily be missed on a routine sonogram. Detection requires an index of suspicion and use of the doppler color flow mode during the scan. Sometimes, the placenta is composed of two separate lobes. Ifthe sonographer identifies fetal vessels connecting the lobes and crossing close to the cervix (vasa previa), then this kind of unfortunate outcome might be prevented. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can full placenta previa actually resolve itself if diagnosed at around 12 weeks? It'd my 2nd preg& I am scheduled for c-section anyway.
Yes, >90% of time.: I don't even look at the placenta before 14-16 weeks because it is frequently previa without any significance clinically. If it covers the internal cervical os and overlaps by at least 2.5 cm in all directions (one inch) at the anatomy scan (18-22 weeks), then it shall persist as previa at delivery with 99% certainty. If it is >2 cm away from the os at term vaginal delivery is feasible 63% of time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
