    Default Experience with Vasa previa?

    Hi I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with vasa previa.

    I have just been told I have a succenturiate placenta with maon placenta being anterior and the lobe being posterior. When I went for first antenatal appointment yesterday the midwife has me concerned as she mentioned possible vasa previa and has booked me in with some doctors in 2 weeks. She wouldn't really tell me much more but I can google and it looks really bad. I know that if caught early they can do elective c section at 35 weeks but last 2 times water broke at 29 weeks. Any info you have or experience you could share would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi there I had vasa previa with my dd born march 2012. I also had a succenturiate lobe with the vessel joining them laying over my cervix.. Mine was picked up at 34 weeks after I had some bleeding. I was kept in hospital on observation until 36+5 when my dd was born by planned csection. It is a Much better outcome when it is caught before spontaneous labour starts. I have a couple of pics that were taken after delivery of my placenta but won't post them her as they are pretty gory.. Pm me if you would like anymore info etc

    H klowe,
    i have just been diagnosed at 28 weeks. I'd be interested in what management your OB is suggesting. ,one has suggested no hospitalisation but I am seeing him tomorrow to review as it sounds like this is the best monitoring option. Thx

    Hi.. Well I went back to the hospital for a scan and met with a specialist who is now saying the vasa Previa was misdiagnosed. I am still concerned as I know how hard it is to be picked up so I am going back for another scan in three weeks then every three weeks after that. I hope they are right and I was misdiagnosed as its very scary. They did say if the vasa Previa was shown I would be admitted at 32 weeks and a csection performed at 34 weeks. I don't really know what to expect now. What about you? Are you in Australia?

    Sorry I just saw this now. I am 25 weeks what about you? I use to live in NSW and had my first at Manly hospital. Royal North Shore is definitely the best hospital. I'm going for another scan next week to be re-checked. Is this your first?

    Just found this thread. I'm 20 weeks and have been diagnosed with vasa prevera. How did all of you ladies go? I'm meant to fly interstate in a few weeks... Wondering what your thoughts on travel were?
