Ultrasounds, Tummy Pics & Placenta Previa

But not necessarily in that order. At the 18 week ultrasound this past Wednesday, the doc discovered that I have placenta previa. For those of you who don't know what that is, well, its not terrible, but its not great. Basically the placenta is too close to the cervix. Luckily its not over the cervix. There is a good chance that the placenta will move up the uterus wall as the uterus grows. We need it to move a bit more than 1 cm farther away. So I'm not worrying yet. If it doesn't move, I will likely have to have a c-sections and could end up on bed rest before that. So here's hoping that it moves! As of now, I have been put on pelvic rest (aka no doing the naughty with the hubby) until I get checked at my next ultrasound on 12-6.

What a difference 2 weeks makes!!! I know that I'm standing differently so it may not be as much of a difference as it looks, but either way, the tummy over took the chest this week. For that matter, I think my chest looks bigger too :)

Finley's heartbeat. 155 bpm. Perfect!

My cute little man! (I love saying that. He's definitely going to be called "My Little Man" a lot!

Semi-cute 3D pic. He was rubbing one eye the whole time! I am surprised that he looks babyish and not alienish. 

Well that's all for today. Now I'm off to start Fin's baby quilt. Maybe. Either that or try to get us ready for our trip to Texas next weekend. Not sure which.


  1. Cute belly bump, and Fin is adorable :) Hope that the placenta moves!

  2. Aww...I love the pix of your little man! It is amazing what a diff two weeks has made in the belly bump!! Can't wait to see his baby quilt. :-)

  3. I definitely see a difference! You look great, and of course, Finley is absolutely adorable =)

  4. So excited to see your little guy again! Ang glad to hear that things are going well. I'll keep you in my thoughts and hope that placenta previa is a thing of the past the next time they take a look!
