So... I have placenta previa...:(

At my level 2 ultrasound today, I found out I have placenta previa. I did a little reading and it says that premature labor and bleeding in the third trimester are pretty common with it (I'm 21 weeks) and that you're even put on bedrest some times. I was already told NO SEX tonight. :(

On the plus side, I'm having a healthy, VERY active, two ounces shy of one pound baby boy! And he's adorable already. ^__^

So.. what are your experiences with placenta previa?

I had it with my son at the beginning of my pregnancy.  Everything was fine after a few weeks

Glad it all worked out! Mine is almost total placenta previa. He said there's a slight chance it'll fix itself, but not to count on it. :(

It's where the placenta covers your cervix and the baby can't get out the normal way. It results in bleeding, preterm labor, and a c-section. I was REALLY wanting a vbac this time, too. :( Oh, and no sex.
