Today we had our 19-week ultrasound and I should start this post by saying that all is well with the baby. Everything is looking as it should, which is, of course, sensational and a massive relief.
But I've come away from the scan a little worried - not so much about the baby, but the placenta.
Now, a quick Google reveals that 5% of women have a low-lying placenta at 19 weeks, and 90-95% of these placentas move upwards and don't develop into placenta praevia.
I am trying to focus on this - the 90-95% bit.
I feel ill at the thought of another hospital confinement (I had about a month in hospital with E) and ... another caesarean.
But, at the end of the day, the baby looks to be fine.
If I need to camp in hospital, so be it. If I need a caesarean, well, so be it. But, really, it's such early days ... I must banish that underlying worry and will that placenta to move on up!
