I had a placenta abruption in 1997 at 36 weeks gestation. My baby angel was on life support for 12 hours. Test showed she had very minimul brain activity. She didn't make it.
I know have 3 on-earth angels. Yes... after my loss I had a miscarriage then went on to have a healthy little boy. After that I had another miscarriage... but then went on to have 2 more healthy children. The kept a close eye on me during all 3 pregnancies so I wasn't worried. Talk to your doctor and see if you are ready mentally and physically.
I had a placental abruption with my first pregnancy at 37 weeks. I delivered vaginally that day and our daughter was perfectly healthy. Since I did not fit in to any of the risk factors for abruption my Dr. could not determine a reason. I have since delivered two more healthy girls and am now pregnant with a fourth. I did have previa in the beginning of this pregnancy but it has since resolved. Hopefully she to will come with no further complications and be a healthy little girl!
Hi. I am 36 years old and am 9 weeks pregnant. This is my first child. Yesterday morning I was fine then I went to the bathroom (no cramps or anything) and was shocked by a huge amount of blood in the toilet. As I was standing there stunned, blood stated pouring down my legs. I knew that this was not spotting. I thought for sure it was a miscarriage. My husband and I went to the hospital where they performed a pelvic and ultrasound. We saw the baby-heart beating, moving,etc. I was told that the placenta was moving away from the uterus and was confined to strict bed rest. The baby's chances are 50/50. Is there anything else I can do to up my baby's odds? It seems the more I read about this the more frightened I get. The hospital told me that having this happen so early is rare, and the accounts I read are doing nothing to reassure me. Any advice?
