May 16, 2011  •  In Aerin, Personal, Pregnancy


I woke up this morning to some cramping and bleeding. A visit to the doctor showed that BebeDeux is doing fine and that my cervix is still closed, but I have been diagnosed with marginal placenta previa which may have caused the bleeding. Nonetheless, I have been put on bedrest for a few days.

Needless to say, I’m pretty scared. I know that tons of women experience bleeding in their pregnancies and go on to have healthy babies. I also know that placenta previa diagnosed before the 20th week gives the placenta plenty of time to move up in the uterus before going into labor.

But I also have friends who have lost babies well into their 2nd trimesters, as well as those who were put on bedrest for months due to placenta previa.

Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers…

    Sorry to hear this Jenny..I too had a low lying placenta with Ainsley which was discovered at 19 weeks b/c i started having contractions! The peri put me on modified bedrest for a week and a half and the placenta moved and i stopped having contractions!

    Hope it goes away just as smoothly for you! Prayers said!

  21. Christine:

    best wishes to you on this pregnancy. i hope it’s smooth sailing from here. enjoy bedrest. i was put on bedrest at 7 months and didn’t listen to my doc. i went into pre-term labor. bedrest means just that… stay in bed and don’t get up for anything (except bathroom).

  22. Lots of prayer coming your way, Jenny. You take it easy and relax as much as you can. Have faith!

  23. i’ll be thinking of you. rest well, i am sending thoughts of good health and strength to both you and the baby.

  24. Wishing you the best, Jenny. I had a placenta previa as well (it was one of the many things that had me on bed rest for that pregnancy), but by the time I delivered, it was fine. It usually does that – my specialist said it was like drawing a dot on a deflated balloon – the more you inflate the balloon, the higher the dot goes. Also, I am so impatient and antsy, and I survived 33 weeks of bedrest. If *I* did it, know you can do it, too. *hugs*
