so, havent been on for ages but pop in every now and again and catch up on everyones news.
Cant believe we are coming to end of this ride, of course its only the beginning though!
My possible placenta previa has been confirmed as grade 4 complete placenta previa. Had 2 bleeding episodes so far last one ended up in hospital for observation for 6 days. Was actually quite scary as at one point they couldnt stop the haemorrhaging (sp?) and started prepping me for an emergency c section and I had steriods to develop bubs lungs. As he would have only been 27 weeks they had the NICU paedatrician come talk to me about viability/possible disabilities etc etc I was lying on a bed with 5 people standing around me, midwives and doctors and an anaethetist, and people running into and out of the room, panic panic panic .... AND..... then it just suddenly stopped.
I've had no more bleeding since then but am on complete bed rest at home til 30 weeks (another week and a half) then can go back to regular life - light duties only! Next bleed I am in hosp on bed rest until the baby comes.
They tested the blood and it is definitely placental not foetal. The big worry is the placenta will break down and shear away from the uterine wall or it will stop working properly for whatever reason and bub will get starved of nutrients or oxygen but as he is measuring 3 weeks ahead (75th percentile) they said its obviously not happened yet!!
So thats my news, still going thru the seperation as well, tho that pales in comparision!
