Placenta Previa
Sun, 02-19-2012 - 5:47pm

Hi Ladies~ sorry I've been MIA for awhile. I've had some computer issues and have been very, very tired and resting when I can (which isn't much with an almost 2 yo to chase after!).

Unfortunately, I was put on bedrest after some major bleeding. Thankfully the babies both look really and both measuring right on at 15w/1d and HB's of 155 and 156. The u/s showed a placenta previa though, which they are fairly certain is causing the bleeding. For now I am on bedrest until it lifting DD at all and I stay home with her, so hopefully this doesn't last too long. DH is working from home this week. We may need to look into temp. daycare if it goes longer.

They are saying to try not to worry, but it's SO scary to see red blood gushing every time I stand up. Just praying the babies stay strong and safe in there :/.

Hope you're all well...I'll have a chance to catch up now that I'm just laying here.

Take care!

Good to hear from you! I"m so sorry you're having that scary bleeding from PP {{{HUGS}}} One of my BFFs had that during her pregnancy and her son arrived a-ok at full term. Happy your babes are looking healthy in there. It's great your DH can work from home and do any of the lifting required with your DD. If you still lived in the area I do I'd have some daycare recommendations but now that you've moved I'm no help =) Good for you for following doctors orders and just laying there...I know it can't be easy with your DD home. Sending lots of PTs!

I hope you are doing better now. I'd find help now, if you don't need it great, but if you do you will be so happy you have it. You are only going to get bigger and more tired as your pregnancy progresses, my toddlers were home with me and the minute I knew we were having twins my plans changed and they are in full-time care now. Without having done that I probably would have had more trouble with my pregnancy (as is I delivered at 31 weeks) and it would be a nightmare trying to visit the NICU without the toddlers at daycare. Not trying to be negative, but it's better to be overly cautious.

Glad to hear the babies are doing fine! I'm sure the 'bedrest' is indeed hard with a toddler running around at home.

Take care and rest, rest, rest!
