I had another ultrasound today. This one was to check a) that the baby is growing, b) that the placenta looks OK and c) that the placenta has moved UP!
Baby looks fantastic. The technician tells me it's about 850g now (25 weeks) - and showed me a graph that puts our bub smack-bang in the middle of 'normal'. Good.
I had a Doppler done on all the uterine/placental blood vessels, the cord etc. All fine.
That placenta? LOW! Darn it. Not dangerously 'blocking the cervix' low, I was assured, but the technician said "you'll be needing a couple more ultrasounds." And then she gave me the tip to avoid Monday appointments (they ran an hour late today).
She also said "well, you've had one caesarean..." Yes, but I was hoping to AVOID having another. LIKE. THE. PLAGUE.
However, what will be will be ... all that matters is that the little one is doing OK in there.
