So I wound up going to the ER last night due to cramping, they did all kinds of bloodwork and a sonogram, I got to watch and saw the heartbeat and thought everything was going to be perfectly fine and I was just cramping.
I was far from being right, The baby is perfectly healthy. I have a very severe and complete placenta previa. The Dr came in and talked to me and was asking me about being admitted or going home because I was being put on strict bedrest and will most likely continue to be throughout my pregnancy.
I am so stressed and scared it is unreal. I had to quit my job today (I was a Nanny there is no LOA or FMLA). I now have no idea how I am going to buy the things I need for this baby or my 5 year old.
Not to mention it has been less than 24 hours and I feel like I am going stir crazy already.
I have already been told this baby will be born by Csection and he will be pulled at roughly 36 weeks. I am going to bleed periodically throughout my pregnancy and have to be very careful and keep a close eye on how much I bleed and if it begins to be too much or too often they will admit me. I will most likely be admitted prior to the csection anyways. I go back to my OB on Monday.
Has anyone else had this? Or have ideas on what to do while on bedrest to keep from losing your mind?
