a very close friend of mine had a baby in May of 2010, and about halfway through her pregnancy they discovered her placenta was almost covering her cervix, but not completely so it was never called "previa" but it was about an inch difference. anyway, she was put on bedrest for the remainder of her pregnancy after going into labor early and taken off about 2 weeks before her due date. one night at about 4 am she woke up thinking her water had broken when infact she was bleeding out heavily. she was rushed to the ER for an emergency c-section and turns out her placenta had, infact, abrupted. thankfully both her & the baby survived.
anyway, she really really wants another baby before this one turns 2. she's young, turning 22 this year and also has a 4 year old. she wants to get her pregnancies out of the way now. but her husband is terrified of this happening again. he was overseas when this happened & couldn't be there for her. her doctor told her that this is just some freak thing that happens and the chances of it happening again are unlikely, even though it's happened before.
has this ever happened to any of you and if so, when you had another baby did it happen again?
