placenta previa again.

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
Well first off, I feel silly, Crazy most of you are not from the US and I think most have midwives. Whereas I am from the US and have an OB.
Anyway... I think I told you all my Kelsey was born at 32wks last year due to placenta previa and was so tiny and fragile and it was scarey. So I have been put on bedrest now, but that so totally difficult with a 12 month old and a very sick one with tonsillitis. Anyhow I had some fresh bleeding... sorry too much info ... and cramping so I went in for a check and ultrasound today instead of my scheduled one Friday. Well, baby Jake's placenta is now lying quite low... not totally low like with Kel. My OB is very concerned. She said if I do not stay off my feet then I will be admitted to the hospital for the remainder of this pregnancy. So while DH is at work, as much as I HATE my MIL, she will be coming over and caring for Kel until DH gets home. I guess this is what I have to do or I may very well lose this baby boy or he will come way too early like Kel. So I am not mommy anymore i guess Crying yes i am just sitting here crying, Kel will only be this age once and she is sick and needs me. Sad Face
Good news, Jake looked good the OB said. He was moving all around for me and I told him mommy loves him and he kicked the ultrasound thing... Very happy Love

My heart goes out to you - you are having a pants time. I can see how it is very hard for you but you have to do what is right for your bump, Jake.
Kelsey will be OK. You are still her Mummy, no-one can take that away and you are trying your hardest to give her a baby brother to play with. You sound like a pretty ace Mommy to me and I am sure she knows that you love her.
I am sending you love and hugs for all of you (inlcuding the dreaded MIL as she has a part to play here too, but her hugs are smaller!) and I know that it will all be worth it and you will be telling us soon how much better things have been because you have rested.
Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss and a smaller Kiss

Hun I'm so sorry to hear you are having problems again, but you must rest, as hard as it is - as my mum says, once a mum always a mum right!? Smile

Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss

I couldn't agree more with the others hun. You are most definitely still Kelsey's mummy and what you say goes! Kelsey knows how much you love her and you will still be around to hug her during the day, you just have to make sure you rest. This is a much better option than having to go into hospital away from the house hun, so make sure you follow your OB's advive! I would try and sit down and talk to the MIL and tell her your routine and ask her if there is anything you are unsure of then to just ask! Good luck hun. Try not to get too worked up over it all, the stress won't do you any good either hun. Huge Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss Kiss I really hope things start looking up for you soon. It is great news that Jake is looking soooo good too hun Xx

You poor person, if it were me I'd think having my MIL over was worse than the medical condition Wink No seriously I hope you are safe and well and that things will go smoothly for you Flower
