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.

Diagnosed with marginal placenta previa at 23 wk. Now 26 wk. MD said I will need a c section. Is there any chance the previa will still resolve?

Perhaps: If a previa is present at the time of labor then a c section will be needed. Typically marginal previas are monitored by serial ultrasounds. As the uterus grows the placenta may be pulled safely away from the cervix. Ask your doctor if other sonograms will be done ...Read more

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.

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
