I had a total placenta prevea, w/ my 4th. I was told before they knew it was "total', that the risk to mainly me, would be too great to allow me to have a natural birth. I started bleeding & was put in the hospital for a week, then released on total bedrest, then ended up back in 2 weeks later, for the rest of the pregnancy. 7 weeks in the high risk ward total... blah. They did an amnio. & since her lungs were developed they allowed me to have her at 37 wks, & she didn't even have to go to nicu. Have you had any bleeding? Your best bet is to take it as easy as poss. You're close to that 37 wk, & after that, as long as all goes well, your baby can be delivered perfectly healthy. I feel for you, it's scary, but most of the risk is for you, not as much for the baby, so rest whenever poss, & don't lift anything heavy!! I wish you & your baby the best!!!
