More bleeding...

So, I've been trying to keep positive and hopeful about this previa situation, and hoping that it would resolve itself. As of 4 weeks ago, it hadn't moved, and I have a follow-up u/s today to see if there's any change. Seeing as how I had some more bleeding last night, I'm thinking it hasn't. I think at this point I'm destined to have a c/s which I'm really disappointed about. But even more than that, now, I'm worried that I'm going to start bleeding at any time! The doctor told me last time if I have any bleeding I have to go to emergency, and the only way to resolve this situation if I start bleeding A LOT is to have an emerg. c/s. Baby is obviously not ready yet. This is totally stressing me out!


Well I'm much happier after the u/s! He started off by saying "I've seen babies born at this stage that survive" - like that's comforting! But...the placenta has moved!!! Not enough to have a normal delivery YET, but I'm at least holding out hope that if it's moved as much as it has in the last 4 weeks, that in another 4 weeks when I go in again, it might've moved enough for me to have a regular vag delivery. Yippee!!!! I still have to take it easy becasue bleeding is still an issue, but at least I got some good news! I have been starting to have a lot more BH ctrx too, so I've been told to put my feet up as much as possible...yeah right with a toddler constantly climbing me!

I'm so sorry for this. Praying that it resolves and it doesn't cause too much more stress.

We'll be waiting for an update from your appointment today. Crossing everything that your placenta has moved, or that the bleeding stops and baby can bake for a few more weeks!

Good luck!

Sorry to hear things haven't gotten any better Sad Hopefully baby bean stays put and it doesn't get too bad where you need to deliver early. The whole c/s would freak me out too :(.

Hang in there and update us after your appt today! :openarms:

Oh no... so sorry to hear you've had more bleeding. Sad When I was preggo with DS, I had a low placenta and it didn't move up to a safe distance until about 30 weeks. So, you still have time for it to move, but I never had any bleeding with mine either. Hang in there girl. Hope you get some good news from your appt.

:bigarmhug: I'm so sorry that you're having to deal with this! Fingers crossed that the placenta moves and you don't have to do a c-section. Having had an emergency c-section, I completely understand your desire to avoid one. It definitely takes awhile to come to terms with having a different birth experience than what you'd hoped for. Keep us posted!
