my wife is 19 weeks along w/our second son. we have been seeing a parinatologist and yesterday was our second visit. they thought she had 30% abruption, but now they state it was contractions. she is experiencing uteran activity. yesterday they pointed out (x2) plancental lakes. (x1) above the umbilical cord and (x1) below. they gave us no size, but stated (x1) is larger than the other. they are going to monitor this every (x2) weeks. my understanding is if they do not produce a clot, she and baby should be ok. they recomended we take the test for DS to check some levels, (doesnt matter to us what they say, we will never aboard). so my question: are there statistics that show what happened in other pregnancies compareable to our situation. our dr has had (x1) patient in 7 years with the same situation and she carried full term and had natural birth and healthy baby. my wife had a tubal pregnancy and lost her left tube, 3 months later she found out she was pregna! nt with our 9 month old son, (carried w/no complications), and she is 19 weeks along w/our next baby. she is very scared and driving herself crazy and we cant find much information on this.

I have just seen our midwife who had picked up placental lakes on our scan and has recommended that we have another scan in 4 weeks time. I am at 20 weeks at the moment. Can you tell me how the pregnancy played out and if you could find any more information? I''d really appreciated it. Thank-you

wow, i forgot i posted this question. those were extremely stressfull times in our life. the placental lakes vanished w/in 4 weeks and the parinatologist released her and the baby w/a clean bill of health. she finished the preganancy w/her OB, baby and mom both are doing great. our sons are now 17 months & 7 months old. pray pray pray.
