Broken that's great about the hb and the pelvic rest. I don't know much about sch's but i thought they were pretty harmless so maybe that's why mw was confused, glad you can take it a bit easier now. That sucks about your nice mw leaving though... luckily for me right before my first app they had a change over in staff so everyone I see is here for the long haul. I don't really trust the mw I saw last, I feel like she's a bit on the newer side but I'm also feeling worried about the ant placenta and movements so it would've been nicer to have a more experienced mw. Will another mw possibly join anytime soon?

Oh man I just looked her up and she graduated this year!!! Although she did get the award for excellence in midwifery in her class but still... you can tell she's a new grad. I kinda hope she's not on call for my delivery!

Reiko me and hubs were literally just discussing having students in the room when we have baby.
They have to learn, but it's still a bit unnerving when you get assigned either a student to learn or a new graduate.

I'd far prefer an experienced midwife. I don't know if anyone new will join, nice midwife implied it would be other midwife only.

But she did book me in for 25 weeks instead of making me wait until 28. Usually you only see midwife at 25 if you're a first time mum but mine said she likes to see her ladies more often and it's too big a wait from 16 to 28. So that was nice of her, even though she'll be gone by then.

They're pretty harmless when they are small, and if they remain small. If they get bigger they can cause the placenta to separate from the uterine wall. Things like intercourse and strenuous activity and heavy lifting can aggravate it and make it worse.

Mines an ECH instead of an SCH. It's inside the uterus but outside the gestational sac completly. I made sure to ask lots of questions last time. So baby and placenta are in no danger. I think it's more the infection risk that's the issue.

I think that's why my midwife was so confused. But we figured better safe than sorry and held off from everything until we could get more answers. Like I said, still gunna hold off the sex for now, until scan and we can see how bleed is, if it's still there etc.

When I was in labor with my son(with no pain control) and I was IN THE MIDDLE OF TRANSITION(8-10cm)a nursing school instructor had the nerve to come in the room and ask if a nursing student could watch. I was like um NO!! #1 you donít talk to a woman during a contraction ever, #2 donít wait until sheís in the worst part of her labor to ask a favor. I was livid. This time Iím thinking of telling my nurse as soon as we come into the hospital that I absolutely donít want any students. I used to be a nursing student myself, but I donít think my instructor would have ever bothered a woman in transition.

Omg what a time to ask!!! What other answer did they expect! Yikes!!

My scan is in the morning!! 11am haven't had a chance to feel excited or nervous today as I've been so busy with the last bits of xmas shopping!! Phew but I'm so glad I'm pretty much done bar maybe 1 or 2 little gifts.

Eek! Do you have a preference or do you not mind what colour you end up being?
