Placenta [Jul. 15th, 2005|04:43 pm]

I went to the Dr. and they said that, according to my sonograms, I have total Placenta Previa. In other words, my placenta is blocking my birth canal. The way that mine is positioned with the baby causes increased pain, bedrest, and often results in a c- section up to a month early. I am at higher risk for pre-term labor and hemorrhaging. I will do whatever it takes to keep my baby healthy. I am so excited!!

I am going to Maine on Wednesday with my family for my cousin’s wedding. I am excited about getting away. It’s really nice because it is the last time that the Dr. is letting me leave the area before my son is born. We just went to Orlando with David’s family (which was kind of stressful) and then to Ocala for an anniversary weekend (which was nice aside from being stuck in a thunderstorm on a cold spring in an aluminum canoe and realizing that we suck at it). Hopefully, this will be a nice getaway for us. My parents bought the plane tickets and the rental car and my aunt and uncle got us a hotel room.

Before we go I have to get new maternity clothes with my mom because mine feel like they are cutting me in half. Anyway… I’m getting my hair cut tonight so I have to wrap it up… nothing much else that is new in my life.
