Hi, with my previous pregnancy I ended up with an emergency c section, at which point they discovered I had a 'morbidly adherent placenta' which I believe is placenta accreta. I am now pregnant again and I was wondering if anyone knows how likely I am to develop placenta accreta again? I have already been told that I have a low lying placenta, partially covering my cervix. I'm not even sure if they're looking out for it again, will it show on a normal ultrasound? Thanks in advance for any insight!x
They should be automatically looking for it at your 20 week ultrasound at least, some look at 12 weeks.
I had low placenta at 20 weeks and was scheduled a rescan at 32, then again at 37 as it hadn't moved, with warnings of any bleeding or signs of labour to go direct to A&E because of the risk of severe bleeding. If hasn't moved by 32 weeks you should see a consultant who can advise, though with your history of accreadita I'd push for seeing one ASAP. Mine moved by 37 weeks, so there's always hope!
