A Pretty Scary Day

I awoke around 1am with contractions. I drove myself to the hospital because I didn't want to wake up Aubrey who had to go to school, so Brian stayed with her. By the time I got to the hospital, the contractions were 5 minutes apart. By 3:45am I had started hemorrhaging. It was the scariest thing I have ever been through. There was so much blood I thought I was going to die. The nurse was just holding me. I told her I needed to be ok because i had a 6 year old at home. I got really weak & almost started to pass out but she talked me through it. The next couple hours were pretty rough. Brielle's heartbeat is still good-150s. This morning I met with the perinatologist. They said that my previa has moved away from the uterus-which is what we have been waiting for. But the previa has caused a snowball affect of problems. I have a subchorionic hemorrhage under my membranes. They are very concerned that my water will break soon. And even more worry some is that I now have a partial abruption. The placenta has torn away from the wall. Baby had been measuring a week ahead since
12 weeks & now she's measuring right on schedule. So it's of concern that in a month she has lost 6 days. But good that she's not a week behind schedule or worse. Dr gave me about 50:50 odds of making it to 24 weeks. Tomorrow I will be 23 weeks. He said even at 23 1/2 weeks they would try & fight for the baby. But she will have so many obstacles to overcome at 24 weeks. This is a very scary time. Right now I am not hemorrhaging but am bleeding. I have been bleeding this time for 17 days.
Please pray that I don't have another hemorrhage & that little Briella hangs in there for weeks.


  1. That's such a scary thing to go through and I hope everyone makes it out ok in the end. Thoughts are with you.

  2. Hi Stacy,
    We don't know each other. I heard about your blog from a mutual friend. I wanted to pass on some encouragement. My sis-in-law had very similar circumstances to yours. My niece was born at 25 weeks and weighed 1lb 2oz. She definitely had some hurdles, but she is now a happy, healthy 7 year old. Miracles do happen. We will keep you and your baby girl in our prayers. God bless!

  3. Stacy,
