    I think she was told something a long the lines of 'it's one of those things that just happens'.

    I'm pretty sure she didn't pursue it further either, probably because of she had no reason to think it could've been caused by anything different iykwim?

    Also, baby was still very active the morning she passed.... it's all very odd. I wish my sister had been a lot more assertive back then but grief can make people not think straight.

    Yeah, you got that right! Grief does strange things to a person. In some ways it gives you what you need to remain strong, but in others it helps you make wrong decisions aout things.

    Good News here! My big u.s was done by a radiologist and she triple checked to make sure there were no problems with the placenta or the vessels in it. We are entirely in the clear! This did worry me after getting pregnant immediately after my D&C and I am thrilled! If it hadn't been for this post I probably wouldn't have mentioned the D&C to her, or the uterine surgery last year.

    Thank you so much for giving us all the info you knew about risk factors/etc.

    Sarah, hopefully you'll be happy to know that my OB automatically checks for vasa previa (and other placenta issues) at the 'big' ultrasound. I was really happy to hear that.

    EXCELLENT news!! You must feel really reassured. It's wonderful when medical folks take this seriously and put you at ease. Good stuff!

    Definitely pleased to hear that. It's such a shame that he doctors here in the UK arn't as forward thinking as some of the ones over there.

    it was extremely reassuring to know all is okay (and that the Dr's involved with my OB clinic are so absolutely wonderful about putting my mind at ease )
