  • I would be requesting to see a high risk doctor and get a second opinion.. There are things that they can do. i have to take a high dose of aspirin daily, but I also have several other things wrong with my pregnancy such as incompetent cervix and high blood presser. They don't know why but I am 21 weeks and I am monitored twice a week by my high risk doctor and also my OB doctor.

  • Well...I don't have "blood in the placenta" like you do but I AM a high risk pregnancy. I am 15 weeks and have already had four ultrasounds. I have hemorrhagic cysts on my ovaries and I also have PID causes by a recent miscarriage (6 months ago). I DO know what it's like to fear miscarriage. Stress only makes things worse for yourself and your baby. You could do what I do. You could go online and research your disease. Thoroughly inform yourself on it so there will be no more surprises (hopefully). You could discuss treatment options if there are any. Talk about what could make things better off for you and your baby if there aren't any treatment options. If there is even a SLIGHT chance that you MAY miscarry your doctor is required to tell you. I'm sure he didn't mean to scare you and it may not be as bad as you think. Good luck and if you want to chat about it further, please PM me!

  • As JD08 stated, your doctor will refer you to a specialist for high risk pregnancies who will have a lot more information for you....
