I woke up yesterday morning thinking I had honestly peed on myself only to discover my PJs and sheets were absolutely soaked with blood. A quick ultrasound revealed a healthy 14wk baby with a wonderful heart beat, but a complete placenta previa. Not marginal or partial - but dead across the cervix. I know it's very early and the uterus has a ton of growing to do, but I can't help but worry as I know most low-lying and partial previas resolve, but the cervix is right in the middle with 1/2 the placenta to the L and 1/2 to the R - a complete previa. They expect me to bleed off and on for the duration of pregnancy but they are hopeful it will move.
I just feel slightly disheartened, not to mention terrified of a cesarean. I had a cesarean in 2008 and a VBAC in 2010 and of course was planning a 2nd VBAC. In fact, because of the lack of good VBAC support locally I'm traveling 125 miles one way to see a caring provider and deliver at a wonderful hospital. I'm just hoping it moves up and things can go as planned.
