Placenta Previa

So I'm now 29 weeks and had a scan on Thursday as I'm high risk for numerous reasons.

My placenta hasn't moved at all and is completely covering the entrance to my cervix. Not such a biggy as I'm a planned section anyway. Baby is also breech.

So now they are concerned that my placenta may have attached itself to my scar tissue from previous section and surgery post miscarriage. I have to go back for another scan in 2 weeks for them to have a good look at the placenta.

I've been told to make sure I have bags packed so since leaving the hospital we now have bags packed and all clothes washed and ready!!

I'm staying calm as my consultant was soooo good and so reassuring but basically have to take it each week at a time.

Sorry for rabbiting on just needed to get it out!
