HELP I Am Starting To Panic

KDR - September 26

I am 35 wks today and I have complete posterior placenta previa. I have had 2 bleeding episodes that were minor but scary all the same. Because of this previa, I have to have a c-section at 37 wks and that will be oct 12th. Of course, I am scared about more bleeding before then b/c I have been warned it can be severe and requiring a blood transfusion. I have been doing reading, which is the problem, and I have read that sometimes women might have to have a hysterectomy after they deliver the baby in order to stop the bleeding from the placenta. It took 2 yrs to get prego and I had to have IVF. This pregnancy has totally sucked from beginning to end b/c of nausea, vomiting, I have type 1 diabetes, I got told the baby had choroid plexus cysts (which have since resolved) had a car accident... honestly it's been one thing after the other and I've held it together pretty good so far but I think I am going to lose it any day now. I don't want to have a hysterectomy b/c eventhough this has totally sucked I wanted to have more than 1 baby. Of course, I am greatful that I am going to have a beautiful baby boy but now the thoughts of being sliced open and the potential complications are totally freaking me out. The doc tries to reassure me but he can't guarentee everything will be fine. I am crying and losing sleep and feeling like a complete nutcase. SO my question (FINALLY) is had anyone delt with this placenta previa or know anyone who has and how did it work out and was everything okay???? Thanks for your help in advance....
