My ultrasound result shows placenta previa totalis at 12weeks, will it move away from the chix as pregnancy progresses?

Usually

Placenta
The placenta doesn't actually move but the uterus grows and pulls it away. Most previas present that early will resolve .

You willl have to be watched closely. If the placenta previa does not move your child will be born via csection. Hopefully your Ob will discuss all this in detail with you.

Transvaginal sonogram safe if placenta previa?

Yes.

Sonogram
A transvaginal sonogram is typically the best way to diagnose placenta previa. The exam should be gentle and fairly fast. There may be some spotting after the exam. But, it is considered safe.

Placenta previa occurs when it implants over the maternal cervix of the uterus, thereby blocking the birth canal and precluding safe vaginal delivery.

Dr. Miguel A. Cano answered:

What are the tests for placenta previa?

Ultrasound

Open-uri20120708-12358-1p30w4t
Ultrasound is the main way to follow a previa. If your previa resolves with time, your labor should be the same as anyone else's. If it doesn't, tests for anemia, clotting factors, and blood availabilty are tests that are performed to be prepared for any emergency at delivery. Most patients are at bed rest in their 2nd trimester and pelvic rest until delivery.
