Me. Had it with both my kids (complete previa and marginal) This pregnancy started as a previa but moved up. It didn't move with my other two. After my second, my Ob said nothing about not TTC again. And not even when we discussed a tubal and I said I wasn't sure if I wanted to or try for a fourth baby. Its not extremely common to have repeat previa she said. Having it once doesn't mean anything about having it again. I (and you ) apparently lucked out on that.

It's okay for you to try for another. I had placenta previa with this one. It moved out of the way. Due to other last minute complications I had an emergency c section anyway.

I had it with my first, not my second and it moved before birth, no complications

I have placenta previa. What I want to know is if everyone who had it was bleeding and if so for how long. I have been on bed rest for 6 days already and still bleeding with tissue clumps every so often. This is really making me nervous.

I would go in to be checked as soon as you can.  Though some women experience bleeding or spotting, and discharge... I don't believe clumps of tissue is normal.

Quoting Brooklynn814:

It is totally possible have another pregnancy.  I'm sure they will just keep a close eye on you, and bleeding is always a sign that something may be up (as I am sure you know).

My sister (I have 3 sisters and two of them are pregnant) has just gotten pregnant with her 4th child and each child has had placental previa but luckily, it moved and they were all natural births. Although it's rare, it very well could happen to you!
