first of all, just want to make sure that your doc explained exactly what a placenta previa is. it simply means that your placenta developed on top of your cervix as opposed to a different location in your womb.
placenta previa although a complication is not the end of the world. i had a previa with this pregnancy, i'm having twins so the worry was significant due to the extra pressure of both babies on the placenta. mine resolved, which is possible. although the placenta itself cannot move, your ever stretching uterus does which can result in the pulling of the placenta away from the cervix. the basic "no sex, no lifting, no bending" precautions are for the protection of you and your baby. if you follow your doctors instructions you can carry your baby to full term with no complications. hang in there, i'm sure you will both do great!! :0)
