Interesting they diagnosed that at 18wks, i had one and delivered right away at 34 wks. Id get a second opinion, cause that sounds wrong to me.

I remember having my low lying placenta (and circumvallet at that) with my 2nd daughter, i swear the hospital wasmy second home!! Extreme bed rest (ifpossible) may help a bit! I hadno idea you could have a partial abruption. What is your goal week they want to get you to?
