You have . bleeding in early pregnancy

You have a blood disorder which increases the likelihood of blood clots (thrombophilia).

Your unborn baby as well as he should be (intrauterine growth restriction). isn't growing

You have had a trauma or , such as from a or .

I had a placenta aburation at 29 weeks due to preclampsia. I never had any signs or symptoms. I just woke up one morning to pee and only blood came out, I went to the doc and everything was fine but got sent to l&d just to get a double check and when I get there my bp was 198/127 and her heartbeat had stoped.

Sabrinaaa27 - its horrible. Were they able to save a baby?
Same happened to me. Never had any signs, had a healthy pregnancy. All over sudden just started bleading. I was hospitalized and my bp was extremely high, which i never had. My son was born at 34w 5days and spent time in NICU.

Unfortunately the placenta detached and my daughter passed away inside of me so I delivered naturally as a stillborn.

So sorry to hear that. Did you have successful pregnancy after that? What are the chances for abruption to repeat?
