Hi Jan!

Unfortunately we weren't able to find out. The cord was in the way and baby wouldn't cooperate.

:-( They want to do a repeat u/s at 28 weeks to make sure the placenta has moved, it's low lying now, so we'll get another peek at baby then!

Christine, Good luck with the placenta moving! I hope that everything goes well for you. Maybe that's why you weren't originally interested in finding out! You instinctively or subconsious knew you wouldn't be able to? Anyway, good luck!

Hello!  I have not been on this board for awhile.  I am due on June 30th.  Life got so busy and this pregnancy has been a difficult one.  My name is Jennifer and I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter Kathleen.  I was on here when I was TTC and pregnant with Kathleen.  I am now 23 weeks and doing better.  We had a sub-chorionic hematoma bleed at 12 weeks which finally resolved itself at 20 weeks and I have marginal placenta previa so hoping the placenta will move up by 28 weeks.  The specialist thinks it will move up since only the tip of the placenta is touching the cervix.  As the baby gets bigger the placenta will move up.  I only see spotting when I strain myself these days. I have my 28-week ultrasound scheduled in April already I would love some good news! I have been on pelvic rest since 12 weeks due to the small bleed.  The baby is healthy and it is a girl.  I am starting to feel the little kicks which are so reassuring after the scariness of my hematoma bleed.  We decided on her name 'Madeleine Anne'. Feeling pretty good these days the bad heartburn has not kicked in just yet but I know it is coming.  I have the dreaded 3-hr GD test coming up in late-March I am not looking forward to that. I passed last time but I am heavier this pregnancy so hoping I will pass this time around.

 My Dad is painting her room today and we got her bedding set with all the accessories.  I loved the CoCaLo Daniella set at Babies 'R' Us.  Once the room is painted we plan to order the furniture and we have to order the blinds.  What do you think about the room darkening blinds are they worth the extra cost or should I just go with the room darkening curtains or should we have both?  It is not a sun-facing room like my daughter's.  My daughter has both room darkening blinds and room darkening curtains.  Any fun nursery decoration news?  I am addicted to Pinterest for nursery ideas!

Any second-time Moms doing any baby classes?  We are doing the Infant/Child CPR class and the Maternity Ward tour.  Due to the higher risk of this pregnancy I want everything in place by May 1st and try to relax those last two months. The doctor expects her to come a couple of weeks early we will see what happens.  Kathleen came a week early. I am trying to wrap up everything on my desk at work by June 1st.  A big task but I will try. Anyone due in June/July and thinking about their hospital bag?  I am definitely not bringing as much as I did last time and really cut down my list. I have my backpack out and putting things in as I think of them.  Pregnancy brain has hit harder this time around so when I think of things I have to do them right away. LOL

If you are looking for some super-soft blankets try the Bamboo Aden & Anais muslin blankets.  They are around $40.00 on Amazon and come three in a pack.  I have not see their bamboo line in stores except maybe in boutiques but I love the deal on Amazon.  They are really, really soft and beautiful!  I already put one in my backpack for the hospital. 

Congrats to everyone on your pregnancies!

Hi Christine!  Congrats on your pregnancy I see you are due in July.  It looks like we have the same repeat u/s on our 28 weeks.  I have marginal placenta previa the tip of my placenta is touching the cervix which causes some irritation and spotting.  The spotting has lessened quite a bit these past couple of weeks and I only see it when I strain myself.  I scheduled mine for the second week of April.  The specialist told me in 95% of cases the placenta moves up by 28 weeks so that gave me hope. I know some girls with complete placenta previa and by the time they reach 28 weeks the placenta had moved up.  Hoping for us both we will see our placentas have moved up by April.  Wishing you lots of good luck!!

Hello, Jennifer. Sorry that you didn't get a reply for so long. The board has been dead since so many of us are having technical problems. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I'll bet the room is adorable!
