hi, I am trying to find any good info and support on tears in the placenta in the first trimester.
I just found out I am pregnant last Saturday :-)
I had been spotting lightly(just when wiping) and light cramping for 3 days previously and thought my erratic menstral cycle was going to start. So I did an ept test, then I went to the hospital because between my 13yr old ds and my 4 yr old dd I had an etopic pregnancy and lost my right tube., so I was nervous. Anyhoo, the hosp. confirmed my pregnancy, they had to do an internal sonogram with a tech, I saw the heartbeat and said I was fine. They assume I am about 7 weeks then, 8 weeks now. The next day I left for a brief vacation and got back Wed am.
Thursday a.m. I passed a small(huge to me tho) clot and freaked out and call my ob, who saw me later that day.
They said I had a tear in my placenta. no sex, no heavy lifting, no exercise. It might take a few months to heal and to expect more blood as it heals.
I have an offical sonogram with my ob this Friday, then next week, my first official ob appt.
Every time I wipe myself after peeing, it's so disheartening, seeing blood, 8 weeks of this is going to get the better of me!!!
anyone with any info, please help!
I tried to search this forum, but 'tear' is as common as 'placenta' ......anyone know if you can search the two words together in ""?
