My sister is 33 weeks pregnant and at her 21 week ultrasoung the told her that the placenta was low lying, but that it was no big deal the further along she got the placenta should move up.

Well she woke up at 5am this morning to go to the bathroom and when wiped it was pink so she wiped again and it was bright red. she brushed it of went back to bed and when she got up to go the bathroom again about an hour ago it's still bright red. so she called her dr's ofice and the lady is spose to talk to the dr, and call her back and let her know if she is to go to the er or go their office.  I told her if the dr hasen't called back within an hour were going to the er.

We're really freaking out here as we've never expierianced anything like this before. if it is placenta previa and the placenta is starting to detach what heppens then?

Please ladies any advice is appriciated and needed; if you don't know please bump! 

she's not cramping at all! just bleeding

If her placenta is low lying and she is bleeding, she needs to call her doc.

 Screw going to the doctor... That could potentially be her baby's life she's brushing off.  Tell her to go to the hospital ER, and they will immediately refer her to L&D because she's over 20 weeks.  There, they can monitor her and find out where the bleeding is coming from.  It could be anything from a placental abruption (which, the baby can be saved if you don't procrastinate) to just the cervix bleeding from hard sex or something.  Tell her not to take the chance and to go.

i would not wait at all. Head to LnD now! If the placenta detaches she'd have to deliver right then and there via csection and the baby is still too early to be born. Do not wait!
