I spent a good chunk of yesterday in the ER, where they found bleeding between my uterine wall and the placenta. I see my doctor later, but the ER doc really didn't tell me much. I think I was relieved that the baby is ok, and that I didn't need an emergency surgery- so I didn't ask questions.
I'm not spotting externally, so I thought it was something non baby related. I am 12 weeks, 6 days along (according to yesterdays ultrasound)
They did a lot of testing, so I don't think anything else is wrong, but now I am worried. Does this mean my pregnancy is high risk? Should I be doing anything other than pelvic rest, and not lifting heavy stuff? I had pre eclampsia in a past pregnancy, but this is something completely different.
He didn't tell me NOT to worry... it was more of a 'follow up with your doctor asap' thing. I don't remember him using any of those words. He said it's the reason why I have pain on my right side, Previa sounds really familiar, so possibly he said that? I wish I had paid more attention.
Hi hon! Yeah, your high risk but there's a LOT of hope.
sounds like previa to me or a hemotoma.
I had both previa and a hemotoma and boy did I bleed. It was bad, man, but I'm 30 wks now and everything looks good. I belong to a group of women with similar problems and most of us are doing great. Hemtomas have a good chance of reabsorbing and 90 percent of previas move up. Most women with these conditions are put on some form of bed rest. There's complete where you spend the majority of your time in bed except to use the bathroom and make a quick snack, there's partial where you need to just really limit activities and avoid lifting, and then theres pelvic rest which means no sex and no cervical exams.
keep us posted. It's scary to bleed, I know, but it's not always the end of the world.
