Placenta previa question? K8andblk Due October 21 (boy); Japan 237 posts

Today at my ultrasound they were concerned that the placenta was close to the cervix. I am 25 weeks. What are the odds this will be placenta previa if you have had experience? And what was your experience with it? How/when did you find out you had it and did it get better or worse?

I had placenta previa with my 3rd. Found out at my 20wk scan.
It was sitting right on the opening of my cervix. They scheduled another scan at 36wks to check on it, and it had moved up 3cm.
I didn't have any complications during delivery and everything went fine.
95% of the time, the placenta will turn and move up as baby turns.

I had it too when I was 16 weeks and it went away by 20 weeks. Usually it goes away.

I had full previa that had me on pelvic rest my entire pregnancy (lots of bleeding). It finally moved at 36 weeks.
