Hi, I am G3P2@27 weeks + 5 days. In my first trimester, the doctor noted that my placenta was posterior and low lying. However, during 2nd trimester, I had at least another 2 ultrasound scans and the doctors have said that the placenta was posterior and not low lying anymore. Apparently today I have another scan and the doctor said to me that I have type 3 placenta previa. I am shocked, and worried. Is it possible that this is a wrong diagnosis?

My question is whether it is advisable to have another pregnancy? I have 6 children born in 1990, 1996, 2000, 2005, 2006, 2008. I also have had 3 miscarriages in 1999, 2001,2007 two of these required d and c. My last pregnancy was a grade 4 placenta previa which required 2 blood transfusions due to low iron levels and also my daughter was born at 32week by cesarean section although afterwards we were both completely fit and healthy. All my previous pregnancies and deliveries have been normal.
