Actually almost none of what the previous poster wrote is accurate at 14 weeks. Placentas grow up during pregnancy. Most likely your will grow up and out of the way. IF it doesn't then c-section will be necessary. but no point in worrying about that at 14 weeks.

My MIL had placenta previa with her 4th baby and didn't know it until her last vaginal exam when she started to hemorrhage. The doctor got her to the hospital, they did an immediate c-section, she and baby (DH) were fine. Yes it used to be a very scary thing before Ultrasound. Now they overdiagnosis it and alarm women like yourself who are only 14 weeks. Placenta previa means nothing unless you are due or bleeding. If you are bleeding and need bedrest then take your bedrest. but don't bother getting upset about it.
