Does anyone have experience with this? I am trying not to worry too much, but I am so worried I will lose my homebirth. Last week at my MW appointment, I had some blood in my urine. My MW thought it was probably just a yeast infection (which we are treating for right now), but also sent me for a sono to be safe. I went to a regular u/s place and the docs looked closely at the placenta where they noted "retro placenta blood vessels." They said they didn't know enough about it to tell her whether it was the cause of the bleeding and out of an abundance of caution, I will be seeing a perinatologist next week. I am just curious if anyone knows anything about this...I made the mistake of googling and a bunch of stuff on placental abruption came up, but my MW said the docs did not see anything like that. I worked SO hard to get this homebirth....I lost 50 lbs before getting pregnant, got off my BP meds and have worked so hard to remain low risk. I of course want what is healthiest for me and baby, but I will just be so heartbroken if I lose it this close to the end Any advice or hugs are appreciated
retro placenta blood vessels?
Never heard of that; but I hope it all resolves quickly and smoothly! I understand about being afraid of risking out of your homebirth; I keep thinking "i'm in the clear!" but the truth is that we never know. Even in labor, something could go very wrong that is completely beyond our control, and we end up in the hospital.
What you have done to achieve your homebirth, though, is awesome! And no matter what, it will make you a healthier mommy.
Thanks so much for responding Emily. It is nice to just get some support back :) My MW called me today and basically talked me off the ledge. She says she really does not think this is a risk out type thing and that she just wanted to keep me fully informed by telling me what the report said, which I of course totally appreciate. I am trying to remain positive and focus on a healthy birth :)
