  • What do you mean you believe you have it? Did your doctor do an ultrasound to confirm? Well I had an ultrasound done at 18 weeks and I have it, I'm 27 weeks now and my placenta is almost completely to normal, I did not experience any of the bleeding either, thank God! Now if it doesn't move out of the way by the time of delivery you will have to have a c section. Good luck on everything though! :)

  • It is pretty common to have Placenta Previa before your 20 week Ultrasound. However, it almost always moves out of the way by about 25-30 weeks. If it does not move out of the way, you will have to have a c-section due to the risk of bleeding.
    Did the Doctor tell you that you have it or are you just diagnosing yourself based on something?
    Good Luck.
