    At the 28week scan make sure you ask for a colour doppler and they check for vasa previa.
    I just had a baby 2 weeks ago and spent from just before 30 weeks until delivery at 35 weeks in hospital due to vasa previa. It is a very serious condition.
    Prior to 30 weeks I was told I had placenta previa only.
    If it is only placenta previa then you have loads of time for the placenta to move out of the way.
    Good luck!

    It looks that way.

    Strangely, the 'unexplained' bleeding I experienced for weeks early on has now been explained!

    Haha - well at least he read here, it's worse being told to your face - we were told that by the Ob then 3 nurses when I went in with a bleed - DH's heart broke everytime we were told - in the end he was like 'yeah yeah I know, no more fun'! Haha

    Yep, pelvic rest and no heavy lifting.
    If it is vasa previa you will most likely be admitted around 30-32 weeks. I was just before 30 due to bleeding, then delivered around 34-35 weeks.

    I have shocking lower back pain today. Could that be because my placenta is posterior and low? No bleeding or anything and baby is very active. I think I've read too much on Google..

    Hi mel04,
    i have just come across your post and it interests me as I have just been diagnosed with vasa Previa and naturally am really worried. My OB seems to be downplaying it but now that I have done some research I too think I should be j
    hospitalised at 30 weeks with a c section at 35 weeks. Did you go into hospital on your dr's recommendation and hope you don't mind me asking was it private or public. Reason being I have private health insurance and he wants me to to to private cos he says the public won't a dot me as it I won't be admitted in clinical our purposes but Easter for my own assurance - I'm not sure I agree with that as much literature suggests hospitalisation. I also don't think private hospital is equipped for emergencies which is essentially why I will be there. Hope you can share some of your experience. If not here please PM me. Really appreciated as I am really stressed out by it. Thx
