Pregnancy after a placental abruption? ✂ Calabaza✂ 18 kids; Arizona 18142 posts

Have any of you ladies had a placental abruption? How long did your doctors advise you to wait before TTC again? Were you considered a high risk pregnancy the next time around? Did it happen again?

I had a placental abruption on 10-22 at 26 weeks 4 days. Although my son fought until 11-13, he didn't make it. At this point, the only thing more terrifying than another pregnancy is the thought of never trying again. No child will ever replace Gunner, but I want to love another human being as much as I love him. And I feel that he would want me to give him a little brother or sister to watch over.

I plan on talking to my doctor about all of this when I go in on 12-03, but I would like some information from ladies who have been through it to think about before then.

my doctor advised me to wait atleast a year, I had it when i went into preterm labor with my son in 06 at 31 weeks , but i ended up pregnant with my daughter 7 months later, and it didn't happen again.I did however go into preterm labor for some unknown reason at 26 weeks with her.

Yeah they are fine now, my daughter really had to fight though and i had to move her to a hospital about 2 and a half hours away to a nicu unit that specialized in babies born before 28 weeks because i didn't feel that the hospital that i had her at didn't have the equiptment nor the training to treat a baby that small ( she was born 2 lbs 5 oz and dropped down to 1 lb 11oz) after i moved her i noticed a big difference in her growth. I moved her back to the local hospital when she reached 33 weeks.

I haven't personally had one, but my sister's second child was similar to yours. She got pregnant about 4 months later (not on purpose) and my nephew was born full term. She's had 3 children since and they were all very healthy full term babies.

One of my best friends had a placenta abruption during her pregnancy and her doctors didn't think she'd carry her baby. She now has a happy little boy. *Hugs* I'm gonna ask her to PM you.
