Well, good news and so so news
Good news is the baby is fine, measuring on target, looking wonderful, active, I thought I might've seen more girl bits but they don't tell in Canada this early.
Other good news, I'm not in preterm labor, cervix is closed and long
so so news, I have a low lying placenta that is dangerously close to the cervix, which in itself is fairly common and usualy resolves itelf, The danger is that my uterus is growing, and the poor placenta placement means it could begin to detch from the uterus, putting me at risk for hemmoraging, which I'm at extra risk for from being on heparin and low dose aspirin therapy, if I where to hemmorage while on blood thinners it could potentially go very baddly for me. Especially on a remote island, far from hospitals, since on the rare occasions women hemmorage to death it happens within 5-15 minutes, this is without blood thinners speeding up the process. So I'm on bed rest and stuck in Vancouver for few days, possibly up to two weeks, which sucks. I have two doc appointments on Monday, one with my high risk ob, and one with my family doctor, so unless I've begun to bleed more heavily and end up hospitalized I'll just be laying low, hoping the spotting & cramping stops on it's own, hoping the placenta stays nice and stuck to my uterine wall, and hoping Emma doesn't go crazy being contained in this small stifling condo where we're at over the weekend (there's barely any toys or kids books or anything, we have nowhere child friendly to stay
Also, if the bleeding doesn't worsen and I don't hemmorage to death and if this mostly resolves, if the placenta stays low I'll need a c-section, which is not my dream, but not the worst thing in the world either.
Hopefully, all the worry is for nothing, my perfectly fine baby is safe and sound and the placenta moves to where it should without detaching and all is well.
Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts, odds are good everything will be ok...gotta focus and believe in that.
