I received news today at my ultrasound that I have complete placenta previa. I was pretty devastated, even though I know that it is likely to move and make another homebirth a possibility. The 10% chance that it won't, and that I will be scheduling a c-section is very frightening. The baby looked fine (still waiting official word from the radiologist though) so that is the most important news I could have heard. I should have listened to my husband when he told me not to read about it on the internet though, I am really scared now! I will have another u/s at 28 weeks, so for a few more months I get to sit and wonder what my placenta is doing. Great :( So please pray that my uterus gets nice and large and that placenta moves out of the way, making a vaginal birth a possibility again.
