So apparently I have marginal placenta previa. Great.
I had my last appt with my OB on Tuesday and she said the results of the level II ultrasound all came back great - except that one thing to monitor and watch out for. She didn't go into detail about anything but did mention that it was common (not normal) but in a lot of situations the placenta corrects itself as the baby grows. From what I gather, this will really only affect the birth plan, and if it doesn't move by then, I can't do a vaginal birth.
I am not so keen about a c-section but really, I will do whatever it takes to get Sprout out into this world safely and into our arms. I can't say I'm not disappointed though - so the next few months I will be praying that the situation corrects itself and that this is all going to be a moot point at the end. Because of this, I will likely be getting another u/s around 32 weeks to see what it looks like then. I am grateful we get to see Sprout one more time (I thought the last one was our last) but I wish it was under different circumstances)
Anybody had a similar diagnosis and stories to share?
This is what it looks like (I'm the one on the left)
Oh before I let that get me all down - I'm 19 weeks as of yesterday! That is so crazy to me that I am actually almost at the half way mark. 5 months ago I didn't know what my body was doing and had to trust that God was in control and that I shouldn't worry so much - and here we are today, with a 'normal' progressing pregnancy and starting to think of things that might really happen this time. I still can't bring myself to look at baby furniture yet, but perhaps in a few more weeks (heck I haven't even bought mat clothes yet - yes I know I should get on that - Christa you made a good point about sizes being gone and now I'm panicking a little!)
I'm always on the lookout for deals (that ship to Canada) so if you hear of any - let me know!
