  • Hm, I've never heard of bleeding within the placenta, just bleeding if it starts to detach at all (which is why they asked if you've had any bleeding.

  • i had bleeding when the placenta tore slightly from the all of my uterus, they could see blood in there during the u/s after my bleeding had stopped and told me that the clot they could see would come out. thatsall i have for you. i had placenta previa btw.
