Guess What!?!?

We are having another baby GIRL!! YAY!!

Ava Grace is pumped and is determined that we are naming her Strawberry Shortcake. She has said the whole time that she is having a baby sister. She knew it all along!

So... on to the ultrasound. My sweet baby girl looked great. She weighed 8oz and her heart rate was around 145. Her little heart looked great - all 4 chambers were there. Her little kidneys and her brain and all of the other organs they look for were there and working away.

There was one little issue that they found. As of right now, I am calling it a little issue until my next ultrasound. I have placenta previa. That is where the placenta is covering the cervix. There is complete previa and partial previa and I think mine is complete. So, basically what that means is that I don't need to go into labor and I will need to have a c-section early with this sweet girl. I also will need to be careful with myself and watch for bleeding. My doctor said that alot of times as the uterus gets bigger the placenta will move and in that case I would be able to have a vaginal delivery. So, I will get 2 extra ultrasounds for them to monitor the baby and me. My next ultrasound will be in March. If it is still there I will most likely need to have a c-section around 37 weeks if everything goes as planned. Now, we all know that when it comes to life and everything in this world WE don't have the plan. God is the ONLY One that knows what will happen and when it will happen. So I am just going to take things one day at a time, try not to read too much on the internet, and go ahead and get everything ready for her to be here so I can be prepared if she comes early. At this point a c-section scar, stretch marks, and brown spots on my face don't really matter that much to me. I just want to make sure this sweet girl gets here safely and healthy and that I stay healthy so I can take good care of her and my sweet Ava Grace.

Love love. My thought for today... NO WORRIES!

Congrats on another sweet baby girl!!! I had to have a c-section and it really wasn't that bad and the scar is really low and small. People will never see it in a bathing suit!
