54mama- Did your MW say why no intercourse? I had a partial previa with my last babe (it eventually moved on it's own) and my care provider (a family practice doctor) only had me on "pelvic rest" for the first trimester (which meant not only no intercourse, but um, nothing that would cause "uterine contractions" if you get my meaning!). Once I entered the second trimester and the placenta wasn't actually ON my cervix (but just barely off to one side) I was "cleared for activity". So I'm curious what explaination your MW gave.
But it's sort of a personal subject so feel free to ignore me!
She started out by saying basically go easy and then said, "Listen, let's just really be safe on this. If you guys can handle it, let's just hold off on intercourse until we see again with another ultrasound." She hadn't yet actually seen the ultrasound report first hand, we'd gone just before the appt. and so all the info she had was what we gave her which is in part why I think she was leaning more conservative. As I said, I'm okay with it (I'm a worrier at heart and this gives me one less thing to worry over). And we're okay for other uterine-contracting things shall we say. Glad to hear your self-corrected... I'm hoping that will be the case for us as well.
