    Default Needing some support please - bleeding and low lying placenta.

    Hi ladies.
    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
    Xxxxxxxx

    Thanks so much for your reply x

    my obgyn isn't too optimistic that my placenta will move and said I am more than likely to bleed throughout the pregnancy. He did mention that I might end up spending the last month or so in the hospital. He is pretty unfazed by all this, I'm sure he has seen this all before

    I will certainly look into finding a good psychologist, in my panic state I honestly didn't think about this. Thank you x

    I had placenta previa and was lucky to get to 36 weeks before I had a big bleed. It was only a few days before my planned c-section, so I had an emergency c-section and everything was fine. Just keep in mind that if you do have placenta previa, then you'll need a c-section.

    Once I knew I had it, I made sure I didn't do any heavy lifting and I decided to finish work at 32 weeks to rest up before bub arrived.
