Baby is fine

We saw the ob this morning and the reason for the bleeding is that my placenta has grown partly over my cervix (placenta previa). 9 of 10 times this resolves itself by delivery - if it doesn't then it would mean a c-section.

Between now and then it's not a big deal - my doc has me on bedrest for a few days and had me stop baby aspirin and fish oil until I've had 10 days with no bleeding.

Our little guy was very active - the ultrasound at this point is neat because his bones are calcifying and you can see individual bones and vertebra and stuff.

Thanks for all the love and support. This was the first bump in this otherwise extremely straightforward pregnancy, and it brought back all the fear from our first two losses. No fun.

Really reassuring to have a not-too-serious explanation for the bleeding and to know our baby is fine.


  1. HUGE sigh of relief!!

    Glad the little one is bouncing around!

    I wanted to keep taking baby aspirin but my fear after using Dr. Google was about the bleeding part, not to say it happens ot everyone but I was fearful.
    And we all know we don't need to add anymore fear to this process.


  2. Oh my goodness, how scary! SO glad to hear that all is well with little one!!!

  3. Super news! Still sending positive thoughts your way.

  4. so glad to hear all is well! i started following your blog when i decided to move forward with my own DE journey recently.

    1. Thank you! If you have questions, shoot me an email. I've learned a lot through this process!

  5. So glad to hear its nothing too serious! Hope it all resolves itself before delivery.

  6. Hey there - having had a similar experience with random bleeding, I have to say I know it sucks a whole lot! My placenta previa cleared recently (not that it's ideal, but it's not as bad as it was at first) and I'm hoping the same thing happens for you. Good luck, and hang in there!

  7. Bed rest is tough... Hoping all stays well!

  8. I'm really glad to read that everything is ok. I hope you take well to bedrest, and that you are up and moving about in no time.

  9. Here from the Lushary. I hope this is your only bump in the road for the rest of the pregnancy. Keeping you in my thoughts!

  10. How scary! Glad you and the baby are fine. Hope bed rest goes by quickly.
