I hope you ladies don't mind, but I am posting here because I figured you would have more insight being further along...
I found out early last week from my A/S that my placenta is low, and I cannot remember the details (didn't know how serious of an issue it could be so I didn't as about much), but the tech mentioned it is either very close to the cervix or touching it. Of course I consulted Dr. Google after that and everything I have read is hemorrhage horror stories and everyone has gone on pelvic/bed rest after they find out.
The U/S tech just said to take it easy, and stop running (I am active and have been for a long time, but have recently stopped running out of discomfort anyway), but don't necessarily stop being active. I haven't had any unusual things in this pregnancy, not a single spot of blood the entire pregnancy, depsite being active--working out most days per week and sexually active, etc. I know it can move up, and there's still plenty of time for that, but for the time being I am paranoid.
I have my Dr. appt on Friday and I'm just trying to mentally prepare myself if he tells me stop everything. I don't know how I'm going to react if that happens. Has anyone had this around this time and NOT have to go on bed rest and/or pelvic rest?
I am very healthy otherwise, and it just seems so weird that I have a potentially very harmful issue going on with this pregnancy :(
