As many of you know, I had placenta previa and a 6.5 sch on my placenta. I've bled at 16,17, and 23 weeks. The early bleeds were huge gushes and the last one was like a period with red blood for a few hours. I've had 2 hospital stays and the steroid injections. I'm 30 wks now. No trace of the sch and the placenta is only low lying now. The baby is breech but doing very well.
I was taken off of bed rest completely but advised to avoid intercourse still. This weekend, I was very very very very bad. On saturiday, I spent three hours cleaning the house and on sunday I went on a road trip and went hiking and even climbed to the top of a waterfal. Non pregnant people were struggling with that climb. Today....I had sex too. I messed up and I'm afraid of what will happen now. I'm just imaging me getting up for one of my late night pee a thons and seeing all the red blood in the toilet again.
I'm not looking for forgivness. I know what I did was wrong. I just want some positive vibes that nothing bad will come of this.
Girl, you gotta take it easy and stay away from doing all that stuff. Just to be on the safe side and keep her cooking atleast for 6 more weeks. Its still rather early for her to come out.
That was a tad too much to do all at once and so soon. You remember what happened last time you did too much coming off bed rest.
Sounds like you will be okay this time around. Good to hear that you are not having any further bleeding. Hopefully it stays that way.
And just go slowly from here on out and follow the docs orders! No sex. I know its hard! My doc told me no grocery shopping alone but I ended up going alone last week but I just made sure I didn't buy as much or anything too heavy.
we all do make mistakes, and i know it's hard to refrain from doing so many things that so many of us high risk mommies are told not to do. i would put myself back on bedrest, or at the very least, very limited activity and definetly no sex if I was you. But don't beat yourself up. the climb might have been a bit much...the sex...well that i don't think has ever been proven to cause preterm labor...i could be wrong...i think it's mostly precautionary. and try not to freak out if the house is a mess (i have trouble with that myself!) if no signs of bleeding or contractions by the end of the week then i'd think all is well. just be careful of the cramping...you may want to notify your doctor of that, especially if you haven't had any before. some cramping, i've been told, is normal after sex..i don't know from personal experience and spotting can be normal after sex too. i haven't gone through labor pains (i had a c-section and getting another) but my sister says contractions feel like period cramps, only much worse. I always wondered why they ask me at every visit if i have any cramping or contractions. So I would be mindful of them, maybe time them and monitor to see if they get worse.
