Hi! I am 9 weeks pregnant and 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with a smal placental separation. This is my third pregnancy and I never experienced ANY problems with my previous two so I am very concerned. I have been so irritated because my doctor acts like it's "no big deal" and I can't seem to find ANY information on this happening before 20 weeks. I can't get excited because I am so worried I will lose this baby. What are my chances of a positive outcome? I was told it had separated 2.8 cm.
Did he put you on bed rest at all? Is he having you come back for another ultrasound to see if it's healing? If not I would call and ask him is you should be on bed rest and if he could follow up with it. I have heard of this before and I think they should heal. If the doctor did not want to answer your questions than what I would do is write them down on a piece of paper and call into the office. If you can't talk with the doctor and you talk with the nurse give her the list of questions. If you talk to him don't let him intimidate you. Make sure to get all your questions answered. That is what he is there for and part of the job so he needs to help you. Good luck and I hope all works out.
