  • The main sign of placental abruption is dark red vaginal bleeding. This bleeding may be slight or it may be quite profuse. However, some women with placental abruption do not have any visible bleeding. Instead, blood clots hide behind their placenta, making it difficult to see. Other symptoms include:

    * abdominal pain or tenderness
    * nausea
    * excessive thirst
    * fainting
    * decrease in baby’s movements
    * cramping
    * severe contractions that don’t go away
    * blood in amniotic fluid

  • Did they tell you that you had a low lying placenta?

  • Usually they are from having a low lying placenta or if you go WAYYYY over your due date.

  • Have you mentioned that to your Dr.? Sometimes they will do an extra ultrasound if you have had a family history. Depends.

  • As far as I know, there is not a big family history risk.

    But Dr's just do that sometimes to be on the safe side and to reassure the mother.

    They did it for me when I had a blood disorder. And their was no issue with it being passed down. just to reassure me.

  • At 35 weeks, hormones are causing more ligaments to stretch. It sounds like you might have just overdone it a little yesterday. I went through that a lot around 33-36 weeks.

  • I had one and I don't know when or how it happend. I woke up in the middle of the night with a really sharp pain down there and then I was throwing up from 3 am to 9 am so my doc sent me to the er and sure enough that was the problem. You can message me with any questions and I'll be happy to answer them
