I went in earlier this week for a follow up ultrasound from my 20 week ultrasound appointment. The doctor had told me in the first ultrasound that my placenta was low, but that more than likely it would move up further along in the pregnancy. Unfortunately, the placenta hasn't moved at all.
So I am diagnosed with Placenta Previa.
I had a call from my doctor yesterday and she said that I need to schedule a c-section. I immediately started crying (that has been happening to me a lot lately, darn hormones!). After talking with her for a while I let her know that I really don't want to have one and she agreed to do another ultrasound in 5 weeks at my 36 week mark. If the placenta has moved then I will be able to labor naturally. If it has not, I must do a C-section.
Please ladies, keep me in your prayers these next 5 weeks that my placenta will move up. I know it's not the end of the world, but I really don't want to have a c-section. I am terrified of surgery and I really want the opportunity to try to labor and deliver naturally this time. Also, please pray for God's peace to wash over me as I am now starting to have anxiety about the delivery.
I know our God is a healer and miracle worker and I am believing in this!
