Not sure if I should be worried!!!

I went home two weeks ago because my mom had passed away. During the flights I was spotting and cramping. So when I got there I went to see a doctor and they did an ultrasound. They said my placenta had started to seperate from my uterus. I am 18 weeks pregnant. Should I be worried about this??

ummmmm is this a real post? because if that really happened your doctor would be extremely concerned and you would be put on bedrest most likely until it began to re-attatch. or they would do or say SOMETHING else about it. they wouldnt just tell you this and send you on your way.

I'm sorry to hear that you lost your mom sweetie.<<<hugs>>>  What else did the doctor say after he told you what was going on?  This is not something to be taken lightly at all.

This was a extremely rude comment... Not always do they put you on bed rest or freak out. It depends how bad it is. You don't know what they told her to do anyways. She didn't post that part. My guess is they told her as soon as she got back to see her normal doctor. I hate coming here looking for help, and people want to be rude. It is frustrating we are suppose to be here for support.

I am really sorry for your loss, that is very sad.   :-(

The placenta starting to separate is definitely something to keep track of--  to monitor.   But it doesn't mean anything is a problem now, or will be.

You might be considered "high risk" if it does continue~  the baby needs the placenta (attached to you) for survival, but it's possible that it may not get any worse (may even get better).  

Best wishes, sweetie!

I had a rip in my placenta with my youngest son. I was on bedrest until it had fixed itself.  The pg between my boys I had the placenta separate and that resulted in a miscarriage, but I wasn't as far as you are. I would think that the Dr would have put you on bedrest.
