Does anyone have experiences with placental abruption?
hi. im about to tell u my story. tomorrow is my daughters 6th birthday,heart breakingly as she was stillborn due to placenta abruption.This also happened with my first pregnancy,thankfully i have a twelve yr old daughter as she survived. after my first abruption i should have been given advice on falling pregnant again,alas this was not given.i have found some facts from the net that have helped tell me why this happened to me. 1 smoking 2.this happens to female babies more than males in the womb. 3.stress. 4.not enough rest. 5.diabetes. i hope your pregnancy goes well and wish you all the joy in the world with this baby. i also have a wee boy and that pregnancy went fine. I am now six months pregnant and doing fine; however, at 1 month I had what they said was placental abruption. I just started bleeding one day for no reason. I was put on 7 days of bed rest, went back for another ultrasound, and they could find nothing wrong at all. It was a miracle of God, no doubt, due to fervent prayer from many friends and family. I do not smoke or have any other risk factors. I have a 4 year old son and experienced no problems with him at all. Hopefully all will continue to go well.

Asked in Miscarriages
What can cause miscarriage at 14 weeks?
Technically, a second-trimester miscarriage is a loss that happens between 12 and 20 weeks. A pregnancy loss after 20 weeks would be classified as a stillbirth or a neonatal death. A number of factors can lead to second-trimester miscarriage. Some miscarriages diagnosed in early in the second trimester might have actually occurred in the first trimester but were not detected immediately (these would be called missed miscarriages). Losses that occur after 12 weeks can be due to chromosomal abnormalities, which are a major culprit in almost all forms of pregnancy loss. But second-trimester miscarriages have a much greater likelihood than first-trimester miscarriages to be caused by other factors. Some of these are: Cervical insufficiency or very early preterm labor Infections Abdominal trauma Congenital birth defects, such as heart malformations in the baby Thrombophilia disorders Problems with the placenta (such as placental abruption) Unknown causes Women who have had second-trimester pregnancy losses should consult with a doctor early in their next pregnancies in case extra monitoring is needed.

Asked in Pregnancy
Does pregnancy increase the risk of palsy?
According to the American Pregnancy Association, yes, pregnancy does increase the risk of cerebral palsy, but not pregnancy alone. Factors during pregnancy play a large role. Issues such as infections during pregnancy, blood diseases, ,acterial meningitis, and lack of oxygen to the fetus can increase chances. Pregnancy will not increase the chance of palsy within the mother.
