i have found myself on this site alot over this past 6 weeks. without being here all day with the story i'll mention a brief outline.
i had heavy bleed at 16 weeks and was in hospital for a week on bed rest they said i had placenta previa and that bleeds were quite common, they scaned baby at this point and said all look normal come back in 3 weeks.
when i came back at 19 weeks baby was only measuring 16 weeks although the head was around 18 and half weeks, the dr was more concerned about chromosonal issues (sorry spelling) so i had amnio which came back normal. however the fluid drawn back in the amnio was a dark brown and this was causing our sweet boy to have a bloated belly. they said to come back in a week for another scan and hope that he had grown at this stage blood flow looked normal through placenta although they could not tell how much damage the bleed had caused.
i came back at 20 weeeks to find baby had not grown and blood flow was slowing down. they said there was no hope and did i want to be induced, i told them i wanted to let nature take its corse and i was just so devastated, they said to come back in a week to see if he had passed as they would probably need to do an operation to get him out due to the placnta pravia.
which brings me to today i am 21 weeks with now reversed blood flow, baby has grown a extremely small amount, brain measuring normal and heart normal but he only weighs 200grams or 7 oz...we have been told there is no hope but i just wanted to ask if there was any?? i had a placenta abruption at 30 weeks with my first is this in some way related? they have not mentioned blood clotting disorders saying that it has to do with the bleed i had at 16 weeks, how do they test for blood clotting disorders? im just so devastated
