Placenta Previa/CSection

After seven children, this being our seventh I'm just now experiencing this. I know the facts. I'm curious if yours corrected itself.
They said it likely will but not sure. I've had six vaginal births and a bit scared by the thought of a possible Csection. Although it would make tying my tubes easier.
So I guess I'm 50/50 on it.
They are looking at scheduling a c section anyway knowing its my last and wanting a tubal.
They have me on McKenna also.
Anywho, did yours correct itself. What is a c section like?
Thanks.

My sister had it and it did correct itself. I do not have personal experience as all 3 of my children were delivered naturally.

How do you really feel about an unnecessary Csection? I know it is easier to do the tubal but if you are not comfortable with it, don't let them talk you into it for eases sake.

Yeah, I'm not doing it. Lol
It's just not right to me.

I've not experienced it with any of my 4 kids. However, in both my last estimated due date groups, there has been at least one mama with it. In almost all cases it fixed itself and the went on to have beautiful vaginal births.

I had it starting out with my son, it corrected itself by about 20 weeks. I had a vaginal delivery. I do relate to being nervous about a c-section, I'm having twins this time, so that increases my chance of needing a section. It would do the same for me though, making a tubal easier.

I didn't have placenta previa until I fell down the stairs 3 weeks before my due date. I didn't know that the placent had torn away during the fall and I had to have emergency c-section 2 days later because of the internal bleeding that was going on.  

My c-section was fast so I have nothing for comparison. Sorry.

Mine did not...  It was a nightmare...  But, we lived, and my DS is a healthy happy 2.5yo...  The C-section was not too bad...  I healed faster than a vaginal birth... ☺
