I have a low lying placenta covering the opening to the cervix which means a few things:
1) Probable bleeding during the during the second or third trimester, if so, I'll have to be on bedrest
2) I will probably have to have a c-section
3) I am at risk for early labor which can lead to all sorts of complications
I've been told, though, that most placenta previa cases that are seen during the 20-week scan are resolved by the third trimester. The uterus grows/stretches and the placenta shifts upward from the cervix. I'm hoping that this happens to me.
Right now there's not much I can do, so I'm not that worried. I'll just have to wait until I'm rescanned at week 28 and hopefully (fingers crossed), the placenta will have moved. So far I haven't had any spotting or bleeding and I'm hoping that it stays that way.
