What does this mean?

I had a placental abruption and was hemorraging severely.

She said she fell two days ago, then went to the doctor yesterday and they did an ultrasound and told her she had a tear in her placenta. Wouldn't she be bleeding?

She had to spend last night in the hospital overnight for observation, but doesn't have any symptoms.

Well, she's now dilated to a 4 and is at -1 station. They've stalled it, but they seem to think the baby is coming in the next day or so regardless. ??

Just thought I'd bring up the possibility that somewhere between the doctor and you, the message may have gotten mixed up--perhaps it wasn't a tear in the placenta but in the amniotic sac?

It's also possible that (assuming her placenta actualyl is 'torn') the blood is coming out of the placenta behind the baby and bag of waters and not leaving her body. But I agree, that seems like a much more critical situation than the way this is being treated.

Best wishes to her and you!
