I had an ultrasound around 17 weeks that showed a low lying placenta, 4cm away from my cervix. Didnt affect a thing; was told this is totally fine for a vaginal delivery. The baby was a wild little thing during the ultrasound so they were unable to get a good look at heart and kidneys. At 24 weeks I had another ultrasound to look at the babys organs (which are perfect) and it looks like the placenta is now actually covering part of my cervix (partial previa). There is a lot of time for movement, but I have to go see maternal-fetal medicine at 28 weeks for another ultrasound. Ive had 2 episodes of bleeding and am on pelvic rest. If the placenta does not move I am headed toward a c-section; SO not the waterbirth Ive been envisioning. Ill take a c-section over a massive hemmorhage any day, but I am hoping I dont have to worry about either of those things.
I had a low lying placenta with my first that resolved by this point, so Im a little nervous.
So, tips ladies? Ive heard acupuncture can be beneficial, Im considering it.
