This is my 3rd pregnancy and I have had bleeding since 20 weeks usually accompanied by cramping, never had any complications with my other two pregnancies at all. The scans and testing all come back fine, they suspect a small tear in the placenta but can't be sure. I have had steriods at 24 weeks and will be getting them again in the next few days. My question is, my labours are short and both my other children came early at 38 weeks, I live a good few hours from the hospital and they have already said they want me to labour at the hospital (which I was 100% anyway). I am really worried about bleeding during labour, as are they, so can I request to be induced early at 37 weeks?? That is if I make it that far! I have a hospital appointment next week and don't like making a fuss but really want to be informed of what I can ask for.
