I'm new here, thankfully. My first 2 babies were born after relatively uneventful pregnancies. I am now 34 weeks with #3. I woke up about 12:15 a.m. Monday night and felt a "gush" Went to the bathroom and my pants were soaked with blood with more running out into the toilet. Dh and I rushed to the hospital where the baby looked good on the monitor, the bleeding slowed and the Dr. thought it was "just cervical blood." I was sent home about 5 hours later. I wasn't very satisfied with that answer, as it seemed like way too much blood to have come from my cervix.
Today, I had my scheduled 34 week appt. with a different doctor in the same practice. After describing my symptoms, he said he thought it came from "a slight separation of the placenta." When I asked if he meant an abruption, he said, "Well, technically, yes." He did a non-stress test and once again the baby looked "very happy." He sent me home and did tell me to take it easy but that I can be up and about.
I've been googling (worst idea ever) and it seems like everyone else with a partial abruption gets put on bedrest. I have a 5-year-old and a 19-month old, so I'm doing my best, but "taking it easy" is kind of a joke. I'm just very worried and paranoid now and feel like I can't even be excited about the baby anymore

I am preg with my 3rd on bed rest due to bleed from low lying placenta but I'm only 23 weeks. I know how hard it is to take it easy with 2 kids! I had placenta abruption with my first. I bled at 25 weeks rested for a week and it got better. Then at 35 weeks I bled again and was sent home from hospital after a day and was told to take it easy. A day later I had a major bleed and had a csection immediately. Baby was perfect but was scary! Try to take it easy, no lifting etc. luckily you are 34 weeks and almost there! Good luck and try to stay off your feet!
I just wanted to add my "good luck!" I'm newly pregnant and just found out on Friday that I have a sch... I'm terrified and would love to hear how your pregnancy turns out! Sending warm thoughts and prayers your way!
