17 more days. 

I am scheduled to deliver June 14th at 37+1. I have been extremely fortunate so far and have not had any bleeds from the previa. They changed my due date up by six days because baby was measuring so big. I do not think my dates are off by that much. I think maybe two days. Anyway.. I need the early delivery because of the classical incision I had the last time. It makes you at a high risk of rupture if you go into labor. 

I had an MRI at 32 weeks to check for accreta. That’s where your placenta grows into your scars and sometimes beyond meaning hysterectomy and potential massive blood loss. Lucky it shows clear. There’s is always the chance they find it at delivery. That would be bad but they will be prepared. I am at risk also for post delivery hemorrhage because the placenta is low and there are few muscles near your cervix to contract and stop the bleeding like normal. Good stuff. 

I am hopefull though  that all will go well like last time. Just get baby here safely. Praying his lungs are ready too.. especially since the due date was changed. He will be born on flag day. He was due on the Fourth of July. I guess he wants to make sure he is a patriot. 🇺🇸
Haven’t been able to see a good pic of his face. Here is a pic of me and my kiddos at 34w. It was my daughter’s Kindergarten graduation. 

The doc wants me to get my tubes tied. All docs have said no more kids cause of my risks. And I am ok with that. It’s just so.. final. It’s hard to mentally switch off the trying to get pregnant drive that I lived with for so many years. I have also heard some women have horrible periods after a tubal. Decisions. Decisions.

It’s a Boy ❤

We were going to let it be a surprise, but the truth is out. It’s another boy! 
I still have my previa and the icing on the cake is I get to worry about accreta too. That’s where it grows into your uterus resulting in hysterectomy and potentially massive blood loss. It’s considered very high risk and if found I will have a team of doctors present and deliver between 32 and 34 weeks. So prayers needed that doesn’t happen! I get an MRI at 32 weeks as well as monthly ultrasounds. I have about a 40% chance of getting it. Can’t say I like those odds. Also, due my placenta being in the position of basically underwear on me, even without accreta I could lose my uterus due to hemmorhage. Good times. No stress here. 

In good news, Baby looks perfect and is quite large .. at 23 w he was 1lb 9oz estimated. I am now almost 26w. 
No name picked. I think the debate will last for awhile… 

17w2d

Panorama test – Normal

Nuchal Test- Normal

finger prick test – normal, less than 1 in 5000

quad test – normal

 

Complete Previa again… although they won’t officially diagnose it until my anatomy scan on Valentine’s Day. I will be 19w1d then.

Feeling decent. Lots of headaches. Hurts to walk already. Maybe it’s 3rd baby stuff or old age stuff.

 

I have a new follower. Hello new follower! I don’t know your story .. but I know I am thinking of you.. and if this kind of post hasn’t come for you yet, don’t lose hope. If it can happen for me, it can happen for anyone. On top of my old age, almost 42, my husband had 1% morphology. Clearly that wasn’t as much the issue as my light periods and irregular cycles. Those bounced to normal for the first time in my life at 39.5 after I weaned my son… things that make you go hmm…

 

 

13w5d

Who knew we would make it this far?? I felt certain bad things would happen. So far, God has been here for us and we are still going strong. Baby is measuring 10 day ahead now! I had the Panorama test done… neg for all things tested. Had the Pa A and risk thing done, also low risk. Nuchal test showed a nose bone and thin neck. We are looking good for a baby that will be born to a 42 year old!

 

I do have complete placenta previa again. They are hoping it will move. Didnt last time. I will know on the next u\s on Valentine’s Day if it has.

 

 

Ultrasound- 7 weeks

Almost two weeks ago I had my first ultrasound. Showed a baby with a strong heartbeat of 158 bpm. Baby measured 7 w4d… ahead 4 days. My beta from 5 days earlier showed 125k. Next ultrasound on Monday, I will be 9 weeks. So nervous. 

I edited a post

And it bumped up. I haven’t lost this one yet. Been having back pain last couple of days. Hoping it is the same as when I had it with Kellan. My doctors office is taking a millennia to get my back my second beta. It was don’t yesterday morning. I know they have to have it. I will bug them in the morning. I am NOT waiting til Monday for the results. 

God, You’re a jerk.

I know people wont like seeing that. But I can’t say I care right now.

Betas sucked. 231 to 371 (50%)

371 to 930 (61%)

 

spotting 6w4d

bleeding 6w5d

beta 1700 something. Who knows. Who cares. It way too low.

So much for prayers from little girls.

So much for prayers in Miracle chapels in Rome where the Virgin Mary appeared.

It’s all about old eggs. The end.

 

Every natural pregnancy has ended in pregnancy.

MESSED UP

Sac measured 5w2d
