I gave birth to a still born little boy 10 years ago following a placental abruption and now pregnant again for the first time since, currently 14+3 I was told at the time of the still birth that I would deliver any subsequent babies early. Now that I'm expecting again I am getting more and more anxious as my midwife doesn't seem to share the same concerns I have and says I'm a low risk pregnancy. It's not necessarily for medical reasons that I want to have the baby early although I have a very slightly higher chance of the same thing happening again but in my mind I can't go past 38 weeks as it happened last time at just over 38 weeks and I was deemed low risk last time, no issues throughout the whole pregnancy. I have an appointment next week with a doctor at the hospital (although I haven't actually been told exactly what this is for) but I just wanted to see if anyone else has had a similar experience and whether they were able to have their baby a little earlier to help put their mind at rest. Thank you. (Sorry it's a bit long winded!!)
