So I got a call from my doctor on Wednesday, and it was not great news. During my 18-week ultrasound they determined that I have complete placenta previa, which basically means my uterus is completely covering my cervix. There are a lot of reasons why this is a bad thing, the biggest one being that I'm most likely going to have an early c-section. The second worst reason is the probable bed rest that I'm going to be put on beginning in my third-trimester. And the last being the post-partum risks due to complications from the previa. Needless to say, I am NOT a happy camper right now. I'm feeling a little like a spoiled brat throwing a tantrum, but I'm also mourning the loss of a healthy, happy pregnancy. I am now considered "high-risk" and with that comes the worrying, and a lot of it. I'm no longer enjoying my growing belly, but dreading the bleeding that could occur at any second and the recovery time that I know I'm going to have to go through after the c-section. Things were so easy with Jackson's pregnancy and delivery. I'm really going to miss the miracle that is giving birth. And I have absolutely NO idea how I'm going to handle an extremely active two-year old and a newborn while I recover. I guess I just need some time to mourn and then get over it because things could be much worse.
