I sent this picture to all of our family.
Some got it. Some took a little while. Some had no stinkin clue.
And so, just in case it doesn't make any sense...
Baby number three will be here right around February 6th!
(Let me just point out, Easton's B-day is Feb 5th and Ty's B-day is Jan 10th...all three will be nearly exactly three years apart)
We are super excited, and can't wait to meet this little one!
This pregnancy has been a little bit different than my other two, though. About three weeks ago, around midnight (of course), I started bleeding... a lot. I know that this is a pretty common thing to happen, but it has never happened to me. Needless to say, I was in a major panic. We went to the emergency room, and waited, and waited, basically thinking the worst.
They finally took us in for an ultrasound.
And we saw a very healthy heart beating. (sigh of relief)
The babe was moving, jumping, and flipping like nothing was wrong. Nobody in the ER really could tell us what was going on, but the baby was fine, and that's all we cared about. They put me on bed rest until I saw my Dr. Let me say how fun that is with two boys. Ace was great. He took work off for a couple days to help. He cooked, cleaned, and served me anything I needed.
The next week I went into my Dr. And we had another ultrasound done.
The baby was just fine.
But then my Dr. pointed out a small problem. I have a low-lying placenta, or Placenta Previa. Basically, the placenta is in the wrong spot...too low in the uterus. It can cause a serious amount of bleeding, and generally leads to a C-Section. My Dr. said it is very possible for the placenta to move to where it is supposed to be, but for now, I am supposed to take it easy, (not total bed rest, which is good news).
We are just so happy that the baby is okay, and grateful that we know what the problem is.
P.S: If anybody has ever had this before, I would love to hear what happened and maybe a little of what to expect.
