Hi all!

I just wanted to update you on how my pregnancy is going. I've actually had problems. I haven't been able to be online much because I was put on bed rest. I'm still on bedrest. I'm having bleeding that is not stopping. I've had couple of ultrasounds and the baby is fine it's just me who is bleeding. The placenta is close to the cervix which is causing the bleeding. The condition is called marginal placenta previa. There are difference degrees of previa and mine is marginal but it's still causing me to bleed. It has caused a lot of worry but we are trying to stay positive. Tony has done an outstanding job here at home running the house since I can't do anything now. I don't know what I would too without him. He is taking care of our son, our dog, the house inside and out, the meals, MakeupTalk and all his other business stuff plus bringing me food and drinks and driving me to the doctors all the time. He is an amazing man! Not too many men would be able to deal with such a load of stuff and still stay in great spirits. He just does it all without any complaints. We are going to go see a perinatologist this week for a second opinion about my condition since I'm considered a high-risk pregnancy now. Finding out about this condition was such a shock especially since I was fine with my first pregnancy. I worked until the day I delivered and felt great. I feel like a first-time mom now that I don't know what's going on with my body and I'm just starting to learn about all this and make sure I get the best care possible. I'll keep you posted on how things go. Hopefully I don't have to stay in bedrest for much longer! It's tough when you can't do anything and you have to rely on other people for everything. It's a very humbling experience. I can't imagine women who have to stay in bedrest for their entire pregnancy. I hope it won't happen to me. I'm at 15 weeks now. We are hoping as the uterus grows the placenta will move up and the bleeding will stop by 20 weeks but nobody knows for sure if this will happen.

I am sorry that you are going through such a difficult pregnancy. Please take care of yourself.

Tony - we knew you were the man, but damn, Reija is lucky to have someone like you and you are lucky to have someone like Reija.

Hugs to both of you!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Reija....I myself am pregnant (second time too)and was diagnosed with low-lying placenta as well when I was about 20 weeks pregnant (had some bleeding as well). I know exactly how you feel. My OB did reassure that it moves up on its own as your pregnancy moves along, and that it's very common. I'll be having another u/s soon to find out if it did move....30 weeks now. Anyhoo, just wanna reassure you that everything would be okay, and that I hope you feel better soon.

Reijia - I hope everything turns out for the best! In the meantime I can imagine how bored you must be in bed all the time. I hope you have lots of good books to read, a laptop computer and plenty of movies to catch up on.

Oh my goodness, you and your baby are in my prayers! I am so glad you have tony to take care of you. Just take it easy and get a lot of rest because as I'm sure you know, there won't be much time for rest once the baby gets here. Keep us posted.

Reija I hope you get better soon!!! I didn´t know anything about this condition but I will do some research in my books to know what´s going on with you. I hope you and Tony are not too worried...since it was mentioned that a low lying placenta is pretty common. heads up to both of you!!!!

Reija, I'm sorry to hear that you've been on bedrest. It must be frustrating and a bit frightening...but it's good to hear that it's something that'll pass and that the baby is in good health. A girlfriend of mine experienced the same thing with her first baby, but it resolved itself by the time she was about 6 months. Hang in there! Also, God bless, Tony!! He seems like such a good guy online..it's nice to know he's a wonderful husband and father, too!!! You're in our prayers..please keep us updated!!!
