View Full Version : Placenta covering cervix
Did anyone have the placenta covering their cervix at the 12 weeks scan?
I had it covering half the cervix at 12 weeks, so I was wondering if anyone alctually had placenta previa at the 18 week scan or had it corrected itself.
Hi, My placenta was covering part of my cervix at my 19 weeks scan, so i had another scan at 32 weeks, and it's moved way up. It's now sitting almost at the top of my uterus, on the right hand curve of the top. From what i've read, they nearly always move up out of the way, but they will no doubt check you again in later pregnancy to make sure all is ok.
I wouldn't be concerned at all at 12 weeks, it's probably pretty common for it to be covering. Usually as the uterus gets bigger it moves with it up and away.
Placenta previa is not normally diagnosed until well after 18 weeks. They just call it low lying placenta at that point. They usually do another scan at 34ish weeks to see where it is at. 90% of the time they have completely moved away in that 16 week time frame.
I wouldn't worry at all just yet. :)
yea at my 19 week scan my placenta was low lying so i have a scan tomorrow to see if it has moved but im optimistic that it has as about 98% will move in that time :thumbsup:
