To those that have had placenta previa during a pregnancy, can you share your experiance?

I'm 20 weeks pregnant and they discovered I have complete placenta previa. I've been reading up on it, but would like to hear from people who have had this during pregnancy. Did it cause severe problems? Or did it move enough not to be a problem?

  • I did not have it, but my sister did her entire pregnancy until the very end and she had no problems except occasional spotting which her doctor said was normal. It moved at the last minute and she had a normal vaginal birth. So in conclusion, it really didn't cause any problems for her.

  • I'm with the first poster, only I had to go on bed rest for the last six months of my pregnancy,. but it moved and I had a natural childbirth. I had some heavy bleeding on and off but it ended up being no problem.

  • Oh, I forgot to mention I have to have a c-section anyway. I'm looking more for complications during the pregnancy.
