Well, I am a little scared. I have placenta previa at this time, the placenta is over my cervix a little bit and the baby's head is down in the birthing position. I had reported having alot of BH contractions. Luckily so far that is all they are, no dilation or thinning. But I have read that the baby only moves into this position when they are ready to make their debut. At 20 weeks, I am not at all ready for that. I need to hold out at least another 15 weeks. Doc put me on some restrictions. DH is going to see if a friend can come over and clean the house for us (that way he doesn't have to do it). Doc says to keep my feet up at work (since I work at a desk most times, no big deal) and to rest when I get home. Said that I needed to listen to my body and it will tell me when I have done to much. But to try not to get to that point. If baby is still engaged by my next appointment he may put me on bed rest for a little while. My next ultrasound to check on the placenta will be at 28 weeks. Hopefully, it has moved if not than I am sure he will put me on full bed and pelvic rest.
