Hi Ladies! I wanted to share something that may or may not have impacted where my minion implanted, but it is definitely something I wish I had avoided while TTC. At my u/s at 22 weeks it was determined that I have a praevia - my placenta is attatched low in my uterus and is partially covering my cervix. I am getting rechecked at 28 weeks and we are hoping that my uterus will stretch in such a way that it will pull my placenta up and away from the cervix. If it does not I will not be allowed to dilate as it will cause hemorrhaging. I will be scheduled for a cesarean delivery at 36 weeks. If I begin to dilate before then, baby comes out.... Because I'm a geek I of course researched this. Where my placenta attatched could just be dumb luck. Women over 35 have an increasing risk of having a praevia, but I also found alcohol consumption is a factor. What I haven't been able to find is how much alcohol and when. I know I had a glass of wine 7 days before I got my BFP because I was out with my friend for her birthday. I don't remember if I had any others during my TWW. I'm a very light drinker when I'm not pregnant so that may have been my only glass. It may not factor into this pregnancy but I will not be drinking on my TWW with my next and wanted to share. Good luck, Ladies!
