I am an anxious person in my day to day life and this problem has tipped me over the edge. I don't know how I am going to cope.
Pregnancy has been pretty good until I had a decent bleed at 15 weeks and my obgyn said that it was due to a low lying placenta. Finally stopped spotting (for two days) woke up on Friday morning (17 weeks) feeling as though my waters had broken.... It was blood AGAIN!! I had a little bit of blood again today (Sunday) and I feel a little uncomfortable in my belly sort of like gas pain.
Had another scan at the obgyn office and he said that he is confident that it's the low lying placenta and the little pumpkin is moving around measuring a couple of days ahead and having a great time.
He said there is no problem with the low lying placenta itself but that I am at an increased risk of pre term labour. He seems to be very matter of fact about it, which is good but I am scared. We haven't told anyone apart from our parents that we are pregnant and I feel I can't be excited about it. I feel like it's all a bit touch and go.
I am constantly checking myself to see if I am still spotting, paranoid about every twinge, going out of my mind with worry.
I am just after some encouragement, I feel very helpless at the moment and don't have anyone to talk to.
Thanks so much
