    I recently had an episode of bleeding at 17 1/2 weeks. (I am now just over 18 weeks)I went in for an ultrasound and was told I had placenta previa.Not only previa but a bilobed placenta. I can’t find much information on bilobed placentas and was wondering if it causes any harm to the baby. What complications should I be worried about. I have a trip to Maui planned in a week and will get checked before leaving to see how things are doing. I have been put on pelvic rest and told to keep my acticvity level low. Will flying cause me to bleed or should I be worried? I also plan to find out how bad the previa is. I am told chances are that will correct itself but not the bilobed placenta. Thanks!
