ya know, I think thisis what I had during my last birth (VIC)...my sons cord ran along the outside not truly *into* the placenta.
My M/W had commented that had I had AROM he might have bled out. ( my membranes broke, btw when it head was almost completely out...)
I am so thankful that I have a hands off m/w because I was scheduled to deliver at an OB who waned to force induction on me at 40 weeks ( my son came on his own at 40 weeks 5 days...)
I had had a total placenta previa with him, DX at the 18 week U/s and was gone by 24 weeks...but was still low lying.
My ds is fine now,vibrant healthy, getting intomy cabinets as we speak *LOL*...my m/w said she knew why he had to come quick, and he did! one hour and 58 minutes from first contraction to birth.
Oh and I will add that I had massive bleeding right around the time of conception, or rather implantation, so much so that I had no idea I was even pg until I was almost 4 months along...
I have never bled like that with any of my other kids, ever, and I had that feeling the entire pg (once i found out) that something was wrong...too.
Does anyone know WHY this happens in some pg's? And if you have it one pg can it happen another time too?
just curious. Thanks for bumping this thread
