Doctor insights on:
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. Follow w/ US. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

UTZ report at uau19 wks 5 days shows fetus in transverse position,placenta posterior grade 2,previa totalis.will this improve? or cs is the option
Likely to improve: placenta previa diagnosed in second trimester most often resolves by 3rd trimester. Usually by that time, the fetus is head down and vaginal delivery is an option. Follow closely with ultrasounds this pregnancy to help guide your decision. Unlikely but if the placenta previa persists, then a csection is needed ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My scan says g.s 1.9cm consistent toga 5w3d.and anteverted,bulky gravid uterus with single intra uterine GS.no feral pole noted,is this normal?
Diagnosed with partial/marginal placenta previa (25 wks). Precautions? Worried about preterm labor, placenta has not moved up since 17 wk scan.
Try to relax!: It's still fairly early to be worried. Most patients with marginal placentas deliver vaginally without incident. If this is your first pregnancy your lower uterine segment will not soften until fairly close to term so the placenta may appear to be low until fairly late. As long as there isn't significant vaginal bleeding you shouldn't worry. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
May be both: A previa is usually painless bleeding when the cervix is changing (dilating) causing bleeding from torn vessels being sheared off. It is a type of abruption although any bleeding from a detaching placenta is strictly called an abruption. These are usually away from the cervix and can be associated with cramping, pain, or heavy bleeding. If you have a previa, let your doc know if you bleed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Anteverted,bulky gravid uterus,single intrauterine gestational sac 2.7 cm gestational age 6 weeks 6 days no fetal pole is this OK?or a miscarriage?
Im 25 weeks pregnant. Diagnosed with placenta previa totalis. Baby is in breech position. Is there a chance of my placenta migrating and baby rotating?
Yes there is!: As the uterus grows your placenta may migrate up, and the baby may turn to the vertex (head down) position. There is no guarantee. You need to be watched closely. If previa still exists and/or baby is still breech at term, you'll need a c section. Avoid intercourse or anything else in the vagina while you have a previa. This could cause severe bleeding. Be seen for any bleeding. Good luck. ...Read more
no: Placenta previa is an obstetric complication in which the placenta is inserted partially or wholly in lower uterine segment.It can sometimes occur in the later part of the first trimester, but usually during the second or third. It is a leading cause of antepartum haemorrhage (vaginal bleeding). It affects approximately 0.4-0.5% of all labours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
