Bleeding, placenta previa, steroids and transfer of care... oh my! - Page 2

Thanks, everyone.  I'm feeling very good about how strong and healthy this babe seems to be.  It was good to watch the practice breathing on the u/s last week and know that she's in good shape developmentally. 

 

I had an appt with my OB yesterday and it's really clear that my placenta isn't going to move enough for vaginal delivery since it's still a complete previa and it moves posterior to anterior and thus the uterus stretching isn't going to be in the posterior area so even that further growth will likely not make a difference to the placentas location.  So, we've scheduled the c-section for 1/27 and I'm now putting the details into place.  I also am going to have an MRI (!) done tomorrow to check and see if we can rule out placenta accreta.  They weren't able to rule it out on the u/s.  

 

Despite this not being the pregnancy or birth I was hoping for, I can feel the fear being replaced by the excitement about having my baby in my arms in just a little more than 3 weeks!  And, I'm taking some comfort in being able to offer DD such a concrete date and information on what to expect.  Now I just have to hope there aren't any emergencies in the next 3 weeks (and two days)... 

 

Thanks again for your support and concern.   I really appreciate it!
