I had an ultrasound today to check on my placenta for the last time. Well - it barely clears the C-section zone by 3 millimeters! I guess that's good enough, so I was cleared for a vaginal delivery! I'm so so happy! To be honest, I was very hopeful that it would clear, but I didn't think it would be by such a tiny margin. Phew.
Also, the baby seems big, 7lbs 7oz, 85th percentile. Like I mentioned before, I don't believe much in those guesstimates, but the ultrasound technician said 'whoa!' when she measured the femur. My daughter was 7lbs 14 oz, born 4 days after her due date, and she was a rather small infant, around 20th percentile, but after a few growth spurts she's now 95th percentile. Although it was nice to hear the baby seems to be a nice size (in case he's born early), I don't want a huge one. My husband's 6'6" (I'm 5'3") so I was terrified of having a freak child rip my vajayjay into shreds.
Tomorrow's my doc's appointment - I am so glad I don't have a previa and was cleared for vaginal exams - going to the hospital to have my cervix checked via ultrasound once a week sounded like such a pain in the ass.
Oh, and here's a picture of my piglet.
