    Default Placenta previa

    I had placenta pravia with my last pregnancy and as it didn't move I needed a c section. I was very lucky as I didn't experience any bleeding from the PP through my pregnancy. I have heard of women having bleeding and having to go on bed rest for the rest of their pregnancies though.

    I ended up bleeding a lot after bub was pulled out (a PPH) and needed several blood transfusions over the next few days. I also had a bakri balloon inserted to help with the bleeding which came out 24 hours after bub was born.

    Tell your sister to try not to listen to the horror stories and not to google PP too much as there is lots of scary info on there. Hopefully she will have an incident free pregnancy and her placenta will move so she doesn't have to have a c section.

    Thank you so much for your response it's great to have bubhub as somebody will always have answers I will tell her not to google it and what you have told me as you have gone through it. Did you also continue with your everyday duties like cleaning the home, driving and walking she has 2 dogs so goes for long walks almost everyday due to having a small garden

    I continued with normal life. Went to work, kept up with housework, took my dog for walks. I did try not to push myself and when I was feeling tired I would rest.

    No problems. Best thing to do is check with her doctor if she is worried about anything. They will let her know if she Needs to limit her a activities or anything.
