I found out yesterday that I have a complete placent previa. I'm kind of in shock and not sure really what to make of it. I've not had any other problems with my previous two pregnancy so I wasn't expecting anything this time. I am a c-section mama so I guess that is a good thing! My OB said not to worry, but then told me to make sure I call if I have any unusal pain, if I do have to go in to the hospital because of cramping I CAN NOT have my cevix checked because of dangers to injuring the placenta, have to have monthly ultrasounds....etc, etc, etc. Has anyone had to deal with this? What should I expect???? I am concerned because my job requires me to be on my feet all day and I do lift/transfer people nearly all day long. Thankfully my coworkers are great, but I still need to safely work with my pt's without hurting myself and the baby. I'm afraid to look up info on the internet because I know there is a lot of bad/incorrect information out there. Any advice would be great!
Thankfully baby looked great and was moving around like crazy. We didn't find out the gender per DH's request. I'm nearly 100% sure baby is a girl like my other 2 because I didn't see any boy parts on the ultrasound and I was REALLY looking!
