Hi C, sorry to hear they've keft you feeling sad and confused, I don't think it would have killed them to explain it to you properly when you were last in! If the doctors happy to wait until thursday then they must be happy that it's nothing of immediate concern. I hope thursday sheds some light on things, try and keep your mind occupied and your mood lifted until then babes.

big hug

RE: 3 days in hospital and now scared and worried- update 30/08/07

Thank you lots for all your well wishes. It must have done the trick as we had better news today :]

We saw the main consultant man today (previously we've only seen consultants that work in his clinic IYGWIM) , he did our Nuchal scan at 12 weeks and was was really calming and reassuring then so I felt today that I would be able to trust what he was saying.

Anyway he asked about baby movements and I said she's very quiet anyway and has been more so this week. He got me on the scanner machine and gave her prod and twice said "did you feel that" ?? I said :no:
He said the reason I'm not feeling much is because of the position of the placenta, which I've always suspected has been the problem humph
I just have to be content with what I do feel I suppose !

He said I had been worried unecessarily and that the doppler scale they use is out of date and is useful to see why a baby maybe small or not growing but he did a few measurements and said he was happy with her size. Also there was a lot , but not too much fluid. I was gobsmacked ! My bump is teeny tiny and I just don't know where she is hiding ?!

I have to go back in 4 weeks but xfingers all seems ok. Very relieved now. It's been a stressful and confusing couple of weeks and I thank you all for your support. lurve

That is just the best news...What a worry you must have had. clap

I suspect that you have an anterior placenta (to the front) and this may cushion babys' kicks..

Hope you have a restful and worry free few weeks.

Hi Csam,

How did your scan go? I hope all went well asnd everything's fine! You said you prob didn't feel baba when the consultant was prodding you because of the position of your placenta. Is it at the front (anterior I think they call it)? Mine is. I have been feeling movements and seeing my belly go from one side to the other but not noticed any specific body parts like a lot of people say they do... and I think that is because of the position of the placenta and sometimes a while goes by withought me having noticed any movements... that's when I get the doppler out and have a listen for the heartbeat!

Hope your baba is growing well and strong!

I am 34 weeks now and still measuring at 28 :(

Do you feel baba moving quite often though? Sometimes I can feel kicks in my ribs... how does that get past the placenta?

Hi baby pink

Baby measuring fine but now they tell me she has the cord wrapped round her neck :headache So a different worry mow.

I found out about my anterior placenta at my 20 week scan, I did hope as baby got bigger I'd feel more but :no:
Like you I can see my tummy move (when I'm lying down, very occasionally when sitting), I see her bum sticking out sometimes :D but not other body parts.
It's very hard as the movements are so subtle and she's very quiet so I do get in a spin most days about the movements !

I hope Melanie can answer this better........I don't get kicks in the ribs but her bum does stick out sometimes so maybe it's just a position they get themselves in that goes outside of the placenta.... ?(

I'm glad baby's measuring fine. So what did they say about the cord being wrapped around baby's neck? Has that just happened? Can they do anything about it? Or have they said there is nothing to worry about?

About the ribs... I think its a foot that kicks the ribs, and it can be uncomfortable but is reassuring!! Yeah i agree, its probably a certain bit which isn't covered by the placenta, hmmm... so what's your due date? Mine's 17th Oct.

Hi Babypink

They just said DON'T WORRY !!!! OMG if only they knew !
Nothing they can do they just said I'd be monitored in labour but it is kind of freaking me out a littlelot ! esp as baby gets bigger then does't cord get tighter ?(
The other day her little bum hurt me a bit and I was like happydance, like you say reassuring ! hasn't hurt since tho !

due date is 27th Oct, lets hope we are both still half sane by then :D

Baby may untangle herself yet. About 30% of babies have their cords around their neck at birth and the midwives and doctors deal with it many times a day. It's not regarded as a high risk complication as it's so very common and easily dealt with. If the cord was looped three or four times around baby's neck then there possibly wouldn't be enough length to have a vaginal delivery and so a section becomes more of a reality. A single loop shouldn't make any difference.

I can only still feel them like butterflys all over my tum. They said that it would take me awhile to feel any big kicks because of the placenta being where it is. However when they listened to the heartbeats today we could hear them kicking out which was quite funny!

Hi Melainie

Hope you feels 'kicks' soon, even now I can only feel little muffled thumps, which isn't surprising though ! I think it is possibie to feel big kicks with an anterior placenta tho.

With your 2 in your tum I'm sure they'll be lots of activity !

Hiya,

Yep even with an anterior placenta it is possible to feel big kicks! I have felt some big ones... not regularly. Maybe if you don't have an anterior placenta, you may be able to feel even bigger ones! But they were big enough for me to go 'Ow!' Now I just get mainly wriggles, sometimes a turning kind of movement, as if the baby's turning around... probably isn't but feels like it! Today when I went for my scan, on my notes they put: 'Anterior High' whereas at my previous scan they put just 'Anterior'. So maybe the placenta has moved up which has made room for me to feel more of the baby's movements. But then I do feel movements quite high as well though... I don't know!

Well, just under 6 weeks to go... just got to keep occupied and try to stop looking into things too much!

I know I probably sound like a hypocrite saying this, but Csam, please try not worry about the cord being around the baba's neck. Like the others have said, it must be long enough in the doctor's knowledge to not cause any danger. Will they be keeping an eye on it?

Hi babypink

TBH they just said I would be monitored when in labour ( i though everyone was anyway ??).
I see the consultant in 3 weeks time. Last time I was there he did a quick scan so I'm hoping he'll do the same so I know if the situation is still the same or fingers crossed the baby's moved the cord !
