It looks like I have complete previa right now though, its just the tail of the placenta covering the cervix.

I don't have a previa this time around, but with my second child, I had a partial one. They kept a close eye on it and it did move later one. I had no beeding either.

I hope it moves up and out of the way in the coming months.

Thanks for your replies. I'm not much of a worrier, but I am praying that it moves.

I was diagnosed with pp on halloween :( I was told it is a marginal previa and to go on pelvic rest. I came home and started googling which was a no no! I had no idea it was so serious. I have had no bleeding and this was my 4th ultrasound, I cant figure out why they never mentioned it at the other 3?? I plan to ask at next appt. They really didnt act like it was too serious only said if it doesnt move up I will need c section :( I have 1 daughter who is 8 and didnt have any complications at all. Due march 27 with a BOY :)

I wasn't told to go on pelvic rest and I haven't (blush). I refuse to google medical things because its always scary to me. My midwife was very reassuring and if I need a C, it will be ok (I keep reminding myself of that ). Healthy Baby Healthy Momma is my creed! I'll be thinking of you as well as we wait for these placentas to shift.

You have lots of time for it to move up with the growth of baby and your ulterus.
