Thrilled and pissed all at the same time

Have had the follow up scan and a very healthy good sized GIRL to be seen. All looks wonderful with her and she was squirming around and is nearly a week bigger than her due date. So we were a bit shocked as I was expecting 3 boys in a row and of course very happy.
When they got down to the placenta it is not only low it looks to be completely covering the cervix with some on the posterior wall and most on the anterior. Only 19 weeks and I know things can move but UGGGHHH. So am not even going to go there for now. Will have another scan around 25-26 and will then assess it. Not feeling confident and was worrying lots for about 24hours but feeling a bit calmer now.
Its not the c section that concerns me - its the much higher risk beforehand. Being put on rest and no lifting (how do you do that with a 12month old) and risk of big bleeds and stays in hospital etc are very real and possible scenarios with placenta previa. Oh well for now she is growing well and all is ok. How silly that I might have thought this would be a walk in the park...

Ugh, more stress to deal with. I hope it "moves" and the worries are over (or shifted as it may be in this reality). Hang in there.

ah it's never an easy ride, is it?

Glad to hear all is well for now though, and congrats on a little GIRL! You give me hope that i will one day have a daughter as I'm 0 for 3 at this point too!

I hope all is well. You have not posted for a little while. Take care
of yourself and don't feel like you have to do everything on your own. See you around.

Hi - stumbled onto your blog. I was told that my placenta previa, which also completely covered the cervix, had no hope of "migrating" in time for my son's birth. I was also told not to be too active, but i continued to walk the 40 or so minutes to and from work until the day my water broke and he was born. By the way, at my last ultrasound appointment the doc said "hmm, looks like you placenta is not in the way anymore"...

So, hang in there & very best wishes for a healthy and happy new baby in June.
