I'm starting to get worried about my PP. I'm starting to get some minor bleeding. It started yesterday morning. I had a tiny blood clot, shortly followed by a light pink streak. I figured if I had more, I'd go to L&D. I didn't won't to call the hotline b/c they are useless. It did stop, so I didn't go in. Well, tonight, I had another very light streak of pink and nothing more. I'm getting worried that this is a sign that things are going to start getting bad. I've had a few contractions. I'm going to call first thing in the morning (my dr not the hotline).

My dr made no mention of what to do when there are just a few drops of blood, or what it even means. I'm just getting really stressed and nervous. I had a really bad pregnancy last and an even worse csection(I almost died & was in icu for awhile). So, I'm already really freaked out about the up coming csection and add the potential complications from the PP, I'm about ready to check into a mental ward. I wasn't as worried about the PP, until now(except for when I first found out about) b/c I had no complications.

any thoughts in the meantime? any idea what the few drops of blood indicate? anyone experience this?

if not, I'll take some thoughts and prayers

Like I said, I'm going to call my dr first thing in the morning.

I understand your worry. I researched all the horror stories when my placenta previa was complete. It's since moved.

Sounds like maybe the baby could be putting pressure on the placenta and causing a bleed. Have you been taking it easy or doing more than normal? No sex, right? If you can get off your feet until you talk to the doctor that's the best thing.

Tell us how it goes. I'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best. If it isn't anything major (bleeding wise) you should be fine. Fingers crossed!!

Just take it easy and call your dr for his thoughts. I'm praying that you have no more bleeding. Let us know what the dr says.

I'm glad your going to see you ob! I will tell you that I've had a pp this pregnancy that caused several very very large bleeds. They stopped tho, and baby was doing well, so they just kept me on bedrest. I haven't had a bleed in several weeks. So, hopefully that puts ur mind at ease some.

Will be praying the bleeding stops and that it's just something minor. I completely get why you would be worried. I'm sorry you're having to go through that. KUP about the doctor.

I'm back. The appt was ok. He couldn't see where the bleedng was coming from, but thnks it was the placenta. He said it could be a warning that something is about to happen (maybe more bleeding) or not. Just to be safe, I got a steroid shot and I'll be going weekly. He doesn't think I'll make it to the scheduled csection.

Thanks for the T&P!

Glad the doctor was able to see you! I hope the bleeding completely stops and doesn't restart.

Did your OB put you on bed rest or anything? I'd put myself on it if I had a bleed! I was always so paranoid about that!

Fingers crossed you make it several more weeks. My doctor had a good history with his placenta previa patients and none of them delivered before 36 weeks. Good luck!

^^i forgot to add that. he said no bed rest right. just take it easy and no more walks. i will go on hospital bed rest if i have a continous bleed. i can't really do either b/c i'm a sahm to a 20mth old and i have no family or friends here to help. i am going to take it as easy as possible though. dh takes care of ds when he gets home and on the weekends.

I know it's harder with kids at home to take it easy. I have a 4 year old and at least I could reason with him when i couldn't pick him up for things.

Take it as easy as you can. I wasn't even allowed to go walking for exercise when my placenta previa was complete. It was torture just sitting around all the time.
