Awww, Mari......I'm so sorry.
I'm so sorry to hear your news.
Hi Mari, it's so good to hear from you, but I'm sorry you have to go through this worry.
I am so sorry to hear about this. I don't know anything about the medical condition, but I know several women (my friends and colleagues) who were on complete bedrest for almost all of their pregnancies--and they were all in their late 20's, early 30's at the time. If you have to go on bedrest, it's not the worst thing in the world. You just need to take care of both your babies AND yourself.
Are you seeing a perinatologist? If not, I think it would be worth getting his/her opinions on what the best thing for you is.
Please don't beat yourself up about having gotten pregnant a second time. Life is all about living and second guessing doesn't help at all. I can sit here and think about all the things I did wrong that caused me to miscarry...and maybe if I had done such and such instead, I wouldn't have miscarried. In reality, I didn't do anything wrong. And neither did you. It's a human drive for us to want to reproduce. So you are just being human...
I have a feeling everything will turn out fine in the long run. You are in my thoughts and I wish nothing but the best for you and your family..
Please please PLEASE don't stress too much over this.
My chart read "Complete placenta previa", and I don't recall my OB mentioning posterior or anterior at all.
Is there any way your DH can use some of his vacation days to help take care of Emily when you need it? And will he get paternity leave once the new baby is born? If so, that may be a bit of a break. Do you have any friends who can stop in and help you? You can pay them back by babysitting or making them dinner or something nice after your little one is born.
Lois brings up a good point.
