    Hi girls, sorry a me post!

    LM - I FB'd you my address.

    Well I had my review appt for my pre-eclampsia and c-section last Tuesday and I was fully expecting them to just go through with us what happened, check out my scar,  most likely advise me not to fall pregnant again and then send me on my way. Instead they tell me that not only did I have pre-eclampsia but I also had placenta accreta and this was what they were concerned about and the reason why I lost so much blood. I had never even heard of it but it's when the placenta abnormally embeds into the muscle layer of the uterus. Apparently often the safest way to treat it is to do a hysterectomy at the same time as the c-section but this is done if known already known before delivery. 

    I was told after the section that some of the placenta was left behind and that I would just pass it but apparently this  is not necessarily the case. So after freaking me out the Dr says the options I have are to take the conservative approach which is to hope I pass the placenta but this can result in complications or have a curette to try and remove it but this may lead to hemorrhaging  again which would mean a hysterectomy. The thought of surgery again scares the hell out of me after the last one so I've been quite upset about it all although I'm trying to think optimistically and hope that I have already passed everything. 

    I have a u/s Tuesday week to see what's going on and we take things from there.

    Rach - Gosh, that's unexpected news!!! Big hugs hunny, hopefully everything has passed and that's the end of that. But.... if it hasn't, know that we are all here for you, cheering from the sidelines.

    wannabb - congratulations and welcome. Sorry can't help you ob's, hopefully someone else can.

    Shy - Poor little S, hope he's over it quickly.

    LM - Poor twinnies, and poor Mummy. I always found 3-6mths a really trying time, x2 for you and sick on top of it.

    Sorry, teas arrived, nice and early, yah!!!!!
    Have a great weekend everyone, I'll try to pop back in tomorrow.

    Rach : what a shock that would be hun that would scare anyone after what you have been through on the plus side it sounds like the dr's are being really cautious which is a good thing in hindsight it may have been a good thing you did not know everything as it would have scared and worried you more at the time of the section and they like to keep that down for many reasons.

    it is also scary when they are talking about hysterectomy they have recommended one for me after my next my first thing is no i am not ready for that if you want to talk i am hear sending you a massive hug

    Rach - WOW how unexpected for you that must have been such a shock! I hope te ultrasound shows you have passed everything and you dont need more surgery or a hyster

    LM - Hope you are doing ok, must be full on with Max and the twinnies wish I could help you out more Cant wait to catch up next week though!

    Shy - Poor S hope he gets better soon

    wannabb - Congrats and I hope your move goes smoothly. sorry cant help with the OBs, I didnt go through Lyell Mac but there is someone in here who did (Digbyleigh) though some people in here had Anna Bof (or had some appts with her) and she used to deliver at both Lyell Mac and NECH,(not sure if she still does) but shes great.

    AFM - Im heading back to the S/East for a few days leaving tomorrow. DH and A were supposed to come with me this time but just my luck A has come down sick today. I swear she knows to come down sick the day before we go away on a trip this is what happened with our QLD trip!!! GRRR!!!! So it looks like Im going on my own now Ah well at least its only a couple of days. Then Im back in Adelaide for a week and a half before heading back there for the 5 weeks.... its a bit manic here at the moment!!

    Wannab....congratulations on your BFP. Yep waitings correct I did go through Lyell Mac but as a public patient. I'm guessing your going as a private patient as your asking about specialists? If on the off chance your not going as a private patient you don't get your choice of specialists and you most likely will see a number of specialists. Lyell Mac is a fantastic hospital to have a baby in, the only problem I had and unfortunatly this nearly cost my baby daughters life and that was not having the same specialist throughout my 3rd trimester. As far as hospitals go my labour was a very high risk due to complications with the birth and all I can say is that it was a good thing I had Z where I did, a private hospital would not of had the hands on deck as they required to save my little girl. One of my girlfriends went through Lyell Mac as a private patient and had a female specialist. Unsure of her name but I'm have a feeling it's who the other girls on here mentioned. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

    Rach....hun, I so so hope you have passed it and don't need anymore sugery. Sending thoughts and prayers your way xxx

    Lulusmum....supply is getting better, thanks for asking. I'm taking a herbal tablet also now (can't remember the name and I'm feeding Z ATM so can't go check but I think it's fennel something??) yesterday I expressed first thing in the morning and got 100mls. An amount I've never reached before, nearly thought all my Christmases came at once lol! It's just nice to know the medication and all the expressing is finally paying off.

    Shy...how's S going? Hope he doesn't have an ear infection and your all getting eneough sleep xx

    AFM... Had a lovely day at the shops with both my girls. Went on a bit of a sock frenzy. Been "sockcleaning" this evening with E lol! Can't believe how many odd socks we have accumulated. Lol!
    Also got Zahlis baptism gift. A beautiful jewellery box from DH & myself & E (who is going to be her godmum) bought her a bracelet which we got engraved. Zahlis christening is next Sunday!

    Hi to everyone else, sorry for no more personals. Time to burp Z.

    Digbyleigh- I am sorry you had an awful scare with your daughter but glad it turned out ok. I will be going private but want public hospital as guess I will be high risk as I will be 43 when I deliver. I had 2 embies put back from 24 yo donor eggs so may be twins too. As I said in previous post very early days yet and may still go pear shape and have to start again
