    Please read it will make you feel better. I was diagnosed with placenta previa and my placenta migrated away from my cervix. Everything was fine. I was told not to have sex or lift anything for a while.

  • I had Previa as well. It can right itself during the pregnancy, so you may be able to have a natural birth after all. My placenta was still low near the due date, so we scheduled a c-section. i was actually kind of relieved b/c I was very afraid of natural childbirth. I've heard so many stories from friends and family about their natural births and I was afraid that my girl parts might not be the same afterwards... I know that sounds kind of rediculous, but I was afraid nonetheless. My C-section was a breeze and I was up and walking around the next day. I was only in the hospital for 2 days b/c I just wanted to get home with my new baby. My C-Section was a great experience and I will most definately have one with my next child.
