A few weeks ago I was diagnosed with Complete Placenta Previa and with it came of list of things I could no longer do for the rest of my pregnancy. The list is really disappointing and I don’t see any of the restrictions being lifted for the next three months.
For those of you that aren’t sure what Placenta Previa is, let me explain just a little of what I know. Placenta Previa is a pregnancy complication where the placenta is too close to the cervix. There are various stages of Placenta Previa depending on how close it is to the cervix. In my case it is sitting right on top of the cervix and is therefore known as Complete Placenta Previa. That’s not a good thing. Placenta Previa can cause bleeding or premature labor and will ultimately end with me having to have a cesarean section.
As a precautionary measure and in an effort to keep me from experiencing bleeding or premature labor my doctor has given me a list of things I am not to do for the rest of my pregnancy.
Have you been placed on any restricted activities during your pregnancy?
