Placenta abruption: Yesterday I went to the E.R for a horrible pain in my side.

.......after an U/S the Dr. found that the placenta had slightly torn from the uterus wall. He seemed unalarmed. He did say that it often is the sign of a miscarriage to come, but said since there was no bleeding it would likely heel on it's own. He said many woman with this condition go on to have successful pregnancies without further incident. The baby otherwise looked fine. Have you, or anyone you know experienced this?

        Early on in mine, I had a horrible, burning pain in my right side for a week, along with a fever and generally feeling sick all over. At the time they thought it was appendicitis but nothing more came of it. They monitored me for a while, and then decided it would be fine and I went home and felt better later. At the time no one, not even myself, knew I was pregnant. Once we did know, months and months later, my doctor said it was something similar to yours, but caused by my Rh- blood. He said my body had been treating the baby as a bad, outside thing and tried to kick it out but failed.
