Hi everyone. What would be your recommendations for someone with PA (17wks) besides bedrest and fluids, no lifting? Do pregnancy belts help at all? Any way to help the healing process?
Placental abruption - (for a friend)
have just read through this thread and its great to hear of the positive stories. I thought I'd share my story for others too.
Congratulations for your baby arrivals
I am 7 weeks pregnant after many years TTC (see signature).
I have had mild uterus aching and some black/brown discharge in crinone cream for 2 weeks and 2 red blood bleeds one mild and more like a day one period with a golf ball size clot after lying still for hours and then standing.
I had an initial scan before first bleed showing healthy yoke and heartbeat.
Then 2nd scan after first bleed baby still fine ordered to rest until 3rd scan one week later and no sex or lifting (had the spontaneous bleed at 2am). Then 3rd scan week later after 2nd bleed and baby perfect size and great heart beat.
3rd scan with OB who suggested subchorionic hematoma said it wasn't big but significant. He wants to see me in one week but to return for scan if I bleed again. He suggested that most will resolve themselves and we will take it one day at time. He said 2 weeks rest from work and no sex. He said staying horizontal helped with blood flow to uterus. Rest was not necessarily research based treatment but seemed to help his patients.
Of course when your ordered to bed rest I went to Google and read the good bad and ugly, but am choosing to enjoy everyday as it's my first BFP and now know its possible and know I'm doing all I can.
Thanks for starting the thread - I love bubhub so comforting to hear other stories and get real experiences.
promise to update my SH story for others out there
Best of luck Pixel!!!
Hi Pixel, rest definitely helped me. It helps the bloodflow and oxygento bub, as you usi less oxygen with less moving around. Often SCH do heal themselves. Youare welcome to read my story in the thread 'Tell me about your Placental Abruption (or something like that)'. SCH is basically an abruption in the subchorionic tissue. I started that thread due to the significant emotional trauma some women experience with SCH/abruptions. There are some long and amazing stories there and you are welcome to post yours as it devlops.
Lucky the SCH has been discovered early and you are able to rest.
Good luck - feel free to PM me if you wish to chat at all. Cheers, Mischa.
