Marginal Placenta Previa At 28 Weeks
Do repeated light bleedings in both 1st and 2nd trimesters due to subchorionic hematoma and placenta previa increase my risk of placenta abruption during 3rd trimester?
Is low lying placenta the same as placenta previa? At 28 weeks what are the risks/how dangerous is it? How will it affect rest of pregnancy and birth?
Not the same...: A low lying placenta is when it is close to the cervix, but not covering it like a previa does. The risk of either is bleeding, esp. Once in labor. But a low lying placenta is much more likely to move up the side of your uterus & out of the way prior to this. Your dr. Will follow this with serial ultrasounds until then. Probably smart to avoid intercourse & to report any bleeding until clear. ...Read more
Unusual: It is hard to believe but it still happens, occasionally, patients come to labor and delivery without any prenatal care or any knowledge of pregnancy and deliver a term fetus. I guess if the person does not know she is pregnant, but realizes this only at 28 weeks after an ultrasound, this can show placenta previa, though commonly patients with placenta previa have some variable amount of bleeding. ...Read more
I;m 28 weeks pregnant with a placenta previa. I bled once and was sent home. Can I make it to term?
Maybe: Placenta previa's tend to migrate up into the large(fundus) part of the uterus when it is marginally attached near the cervical opening and the pregnancy goes to term. A ultrasound can confirm its' location. If you have any vaginal bleeding whatsoever, go directly to the hospital if it is bright red and call your OB immediately. ...Read more
Marginal placenta pr: Usually yes.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Marginal/partial placenta previa is when the placenta comes to the edge of the cervix and maybe even covers a small part of the cervix. Not uncommon on early ultrasounds. As the pregnancy progresses, there is a good chance that this will resolve. If it is still present as you get farther into the 3rd trimester, then it becomes less likely that it will resolve, and a csection may be necessary. ...Read more
Can placenta previa move closer to rather than away from cervix over time? I had low-lying placenta @14w, marginal previa@20w, partial previa@28w?
