Hello again... So, of course I failed to reschedule my 28 week u/s, and went in today with fingers crossed the darn placenta had moved up or whatever it does... And it's still 1/2 inch away from cervix - so... 1.27 cm instead of the 2 cm they like it to be for a natural birth.
Mostly I'm just bummed out because this means I'm most definitely going to have YET ANOTHER u/s this pregnancy. I asked the u/s tech point blank what this means - since it's not previa - does she see some practices who have different ideas about what constitutes "low lying"... and she told me, this means that it's for me to "duke it out" (her words) with my dr - they report the measurements, but stay neutral in the fight.
the u/s tech (I think she was the head technician, not a dr) told me that the placenta will probably get out of the way by the end. But that I shouldn't worry about anything because "what's the big deal, you'll just have a c-section if it doesn't" -- that attitude really makes me irritated. I don't WANT a c-section if the placenta isn't in the way of my cervix. And yes, I get that her point is that there are worse problems and if this is all I have to worry about, then I should relax. But I feel like I've not been given the complete information on "low lying placentas", and wonder if there are any doctors/midwives out there who would just deliver at 1.27 cm from the cervix rather than the 2cm they are looking for. 2 cm seems somewhat arbitrary. Like, they just wanted to come up with a nice round # so they chose 2 cm as.
Mostly just annoyed that I"ll be having another u/s. I should have rescheduled it.
