FINALLY! U/S and 21 wk appt...

So here it is... we are having a.... GIRL!!!  This makes 4 girls for us.  Crazy!  We have had a boy name picked out forever, but still can't agree on another girl name.  Hoping we can figure that out soon.  :)

Baby looked perfect on u/s, however...

I have placenta previa.  :(  The placenta is completely covering the cervix which means c-section for me!  I have always delivered the good-old-fashioned way so this will be a new experience.  My doc thinks there is small chance it might move.  The good news is I get an u/s at every appointment now.  The bad news is there are a lot of complications that could go along with it, like excessive bleeding in the 3rd trimester.  No intercourse.  No heavy lifting.  Possibility of bedrest (with 3 kids... yeah, right!).  A little unnerving, to be honest.  So I guess we take it one day at a time from here!

Congratulations on your little girl!  I'll say a prayer for that placenta!  Hopefully it will surprise the doctor and move so you can give birth the way you prefer.  :)

You should come find us on the "face" of the "book!"  Several of us are already there.  :)  Look up March 2013 Expecting Club, or check you private message on the board for a link.  :)
