Week 7: Torn Placenta

Bright red bleeding when I went to the loo after a long Monday at work and late dinner where I was walking non stop all day and evening.

Doc confirmed a placenta tear — scan revealed that it happened on the opposite side of my womb.  If it had torn where the embryo was — sob! Thank God for His protection over the baby.  I must be more careful….

Doc prescribed one week bed rest, no work, no activities. Got a progesterone jab and twice daily doses of Duphaston rest of week. 

Home alone with my thoughts and the internet. Nausea, back aches and pelvic cramps starting. Horrid week.
