Welcome! I hope and pray that your pregnancy continues and things look up for you from here on out.

Welcome! Im sorry you have to be seperated from your son. I hope things progress well and look up from here on out!

Welcome! My cervix is closed but when my baby was breech, I felt vibrations a lot too but now I dont feel them.

Im still pregnant! I am 27+3 weeks today. I am still spotting occassionally but things are pretty stable right now.

3 blessings from 2018 are:
1. My oldest started 9th grade.
2. We started a small apiary.
3. We started raising a small herd of dairy goats.

Glad to hear that you are still pregnant! I hope you keep him/her in for several more weeks. I hope your holidays are joyous despite being in the hospital.

I am 25 + 5 weeks today. It was a relief to have it move away. I had a lot of fear wondering if I would have a major bleed, if the baby would survive and whether or not I would need a hysterectomy if I did have an accreta and whether I would be hospitalized for weeks to months and seperated from my children.

Im sorry you are experiencing this! I had some
scares with the same complications but nothing as tremendous as what you are going through.

I started bleeding mildly around 12 weeks and I was diagnosed with complete placenta previa. I have had 5 prior c-sections and a front lying placenta so they were very worried about an accreta for me as well. I am 25 + 4 weeks now and my placenta previa has resolved and they believe my placenta is far enough away from my cervix now that they arent as worried about it being attached to the scar tissue.

Ive been having them a lot. My doctor said it was okay and beyond my control. I havent had any adverse side effects from them. I kbow it is difficult but try to remind yourself that you are doing everything you can to keep your baby safe and try not to panic at the circumstances that you cant control.

I am 25 + 2 weeks. My placenta has continously moved away from my cervix so my doctor feels that my chances of having an accreta are slim. We will have to watch but they arent going to send me to the regional hospital at this time. My doctor still wants me on modified bed rest but I can stand up for up to 30 minutes a few times a day. Hopefully as I get further along and gain my strength back, I can do more.

Thank you for sharing your journey. I hope your cerclage holds and you make it as close to your due date as possible.

Sorry to hear about your pprom! I dont know how to answer your question but hope you get support you need and keeo us updated on your progress. Did the cerclage cause your rupture or was it placed after your rupture?

I made it to 24 weeks + 3. My first goal was to reach 23+5 which is our local hospitals policy for admitting babies to Nicu. My current next milestone is to make it to 28 weeks. I am still mostly on bedrest but I am allowed to go to church still, appointments, and can stand for up to 30 minutes if I feel like it to cook dinner or something else that is light. We just completed our holiday meal with family. We will have our neighbors for pizza and wings on Christmas Eve and have lasagne Christmas day. Everything will be at our house. Once I get to 28 weeks, I will be referred to our regional hospital for MRI to rule out or diagnose accreta.
