Oh you poor mama! I hate being that scared! Placentas can heal though, so lets pray that is just what happens, and quickly, so your LO can stay in as long as possible.

Update #2

Well, good news is that the bleeding has stopped

I'm on modified rest, which is really really hard with my active toddler. The result is that she isn't getting enough activity during the day, so not sleeping much in the night... nursing every hour . She *had* started to sleep for a 7 hour stretch. So the lack of sleep is hard.

My midwife questioned my protein intake and oops! I figure I was only eating 30-50 grams a day eep! The looks like there were some previous bleeds on the placenta. I'm now tracking my protein and trying to take in 100g/day. This is really really hard as I can't eat dairy and am pretty turned off food in general. We usually eat a fairly vegetarian diet, but I'm finding the thought of my usual proteins, such as beans, gross. I have started eating eggs again and am going to make some chickpea bread. I also got a thing of brown rice protein powder and have been making smoothies.

I will find out more on Tuesday when I have my midwifes appt. I'm really hoping to find out how much activity is ok. Like can I climb the playground equipment with my DD? Because if I don't get her out for more activity, we are both going to go insane!

I'm glad the bleeding stopped. Will more protein help your placenta? Hope you can get it down okay!

I'm glad your bleeding has stopped. Good luck with upping your protein intake. I've had a hard time with that this week. My big source of protein has been peanut butter and I'm getting a little sick of it now, too!

I can't imagine trying to be on bed rest right now--modified or otherwise. My house would be an absolute disaster. I mean, more than it is now.

Blessings and good health to you and your babe!

Those are great news! Does your midwife think increasing the protein will help with the bleeding?

Yeah, hopefully extra protein will help build up the placenta. I was not even eating enough for a non pregnant person :... Let alone a pregnant and nursing person. Just haven't had an appetite. Tracking it helps me remember to eat it and make sure I get in 100g
