would like to ask if any of you had a repeat of this with the subsequent pg, l had it with my first dd but worried l will have the same with my second now!
they never really did give me a proper explanation for why it happened? they just said it was one of those things
the thing that terrified me is that l had to be carted off to surgery to get a spinal to have the placenta removed which took all of but 4 hours for me to get back to my princess and the thought of that this time is also worrying me!
having asked my consultant if this could happen again he said - not likely but he never sounded sure of himself.
my little princess was also IUGR so was born at 37 wks weighing 4lb 11oz but is quite healthy now!
Hi, this happened to me in my first pregnancy my son was also born at 37 weeks, had to go to theatre to have my placenta removed, 2nd pregnancy my placenta came out no problems, try not to worry, good luck xx
I think it is just one of those things, like you said. He cant say no it wont happen again because theoretically it could. I do not think it is likely to happen again just because it happened before. Wow, I hope that made sense cuz it sounds strange!
I had this with my first pregnancy, but none of my others ( I'm pregnant with my 5th).
I have had to have a blood transfusions after all of my births though, due to blood loss and severe anaemia But midwife said it wasn't related to what happened with my first and was more likely because I've been so iron deficient when I've gone in to labour.
I had retained product too and had to go to surgery for an evacuation. I'm now pregnant with my second and so a couple of weeks ago I had a birth afterthoughts discussion with a MW consultant and she was wonderful. She really put my mind at ease and explained what happened much better and in greater detail than what I got before. She said she's gonna work with me on my birth plan and to hopefully get the labour and birth I want.
Ask about having a birth afterthoughts session, to help you make a bit more sense of it all.
