If I have placenta previa, will I be put on bed rest?

If I have placenta previa, will I be put on bed rest?

No: Placenta previa includes partial or complete coverage of the cervix by the placenta. Bedrest is not necessary unless there is vaginal bleeding or persistent preterm labor. If vaginal bleeding is experienced, you will often be evaluated in the hospital with ultrasound and eventually released home to bedrest for awhile. ...Read more

Strict Bed Rest (Definition)

For some women, the doctor recommends total or partial bed rest during their pregnancy. They may be at high risk for preterm labor or other complications, requiring them to reduce their activity level, stay away from stressful situations, and keep the baby inside as long as possible. If your health care provider orders a dose of bed rest for you - whether it's for one day or for the duration of your pregnancy - you might try these coping strategies to help accept the restrictions ...Read more

Can placenta previa be corrected with bed rest?

Can placenta previa be corrected with bed rest?

Not really.: If the diagnosis of placenta previa is made before 20 weeks, some women experience resolution of the morbid placental implantation with time - bedrest is not correcting the problem. As the uterus and the fetus grow, they pull on the placenta and stretch the lower uterine segment to "move" the placenta out of the way and allow for vaginal delivery at term. ...Read more

If is not go and see your doctor for advice. ...Read more

Concussion: I think your doctor is worried about a concussion. This generally requires rest and quiet activities for 1-2 weeks. If you have any new symptoms or you are not recovering as expected see your doctor once again. All the best. ...Read more

Been on bed rest for 2 months. Sitting upright I feel wobbly, tense shoulders, wobbly swimmy head. I put head between knees and head spins. This bp?

Not surprising: In a study of medical student, 3 days of bedrest resulted in weakness and dizziness with standing. It's hard to imagine a recommendation of bedrest for 2 months. It would be expected to be associated with a high risk of blood clots in ones legs and resultant pulmonary embolism, and osteoporosis. Physiotherapy can greatly help in achieving a recovery. ...Read more

My ultrasound shows subchorionic hematoma I am 6wk long and I have a history of miscarriages my OB didn't put me on bed rest is these normal?

My ultrasound shows subchorionic hematoma I am 6wk long and I have a history of miscarriages my OB didn't put me on bed rest is these normal?

Yes: Subchorionic hematomas are quite common in early pregnancy, and most of them are absorbed (blood is washed away) within a few weeks. Bed rest is usually not necessary, but pelvic rest may be a good idea (nothing inserted into the vagina)...consider discussing this with your OB. They may want to do a follow up ultrasound in a month or two. Congrats on your pregnancy! ...Read more

After 7 days of bed rest, knee brace and crutches I can't walk with my left leg or put pressure bcs it bends and my foot feels rlly weak is it normal?

Not normal/healthy: either one. With any lack of use of muscles, both our muscles & brain coordination for effective use decline. However, with such limited information, it is difficult to offer much help. Why the rest, brace, crutches in the first place? Build, previous capabilities & activities, known absence of health issues? ...Read more

I have a marginal placenta previa at 20 weeks. My midwife recommends pelvic rest and no intercourse. Is masturbation okay?

I have a marginal placenta previa at 20 weeks.  My midwife recommends pelvic rest and no intercourse.  Is masturbation okay?

See answer: This is a question you should definitely discuss with your doctor and/or midwife who are most familiar with you and your condition. Masturbation and orgasm are associated with uterine contraction which potentially may put you and your baby at risk of bleeding or other complications. Always best to heed the advice of your personal healthcare providers who are most familiar with you. ...Read more
