Right now we have a C/S date of the 25th (10 days early). I ended up in the hospital last week for bleeding at 35wks. They found out that the placenta is closer to the cervix than they thought. I have a marginal previa, which can sometimes be born vaginally, but not if its starts a bleed, too risky. I was really hoping for a VBA2C, but thats not going to happen now. Even if I hadn't had c/s's in the past I'd have one now, so whatever, I'm just glad she is ok. It just seems like this whole pregnancy has been a series of abnormalities. I had a lot of bleeding the first two months, that stopped, we found out she has a heart defect that will require open heart surgery, she has a single umbilical artery, and now a marginal previa with a bleed. I'm sure everything will be fine, its just been a lot to take in for a few weeks. I'm really trying to keep lots of postive thoughts going through my head, but I'm terrified of another c/s and also her being rushed to the NICU for her heart condition. "It'll be ok. It'll be ok. It'll be ok." At least spring is on its way and come May we'll be at home relax with a new babe!

Aw, Mary, sorry to hear this -- I can totally understand how it must feel like everything is conspiring against a normal pg/delivery. I'm sure I'd be disappointed, too!

Is there any silver lining in that a c/s would be easier on the babe (since she has a heart defect) than a vaginal birth?

Hugs to you, and hopes that after the delivery and surgery is behind you both, things go boringly normal from then on!

Just a couple more weeks before you meet your little girl now. Many, many and : that all goes well with the surgery/birth and that your babe will do well. Keep us posted on how things are going.

Thank you all so much for the prayers and good vibes. I'm sure everything will work out just fine. It's really weird to be told to slow down right in the middle of "nesting" and change courses, I know there are plenty of women who have been in or are in (all our bedrest mamas know!) the same position.
