Ultrasound

So I went to the Doctor for an ultrasound today. According to the size of the baby, they set my new due date as June 27. They also said that it's a girl! Everyone (My husband and extended family) are pretty excited since it will be my first girl. The six year old however does not think it will be so good since now there will be pink stuff in the room. Anyway, the ultrasound also revealed that I have placenta previa. They said not to worry since it might fix itself over time but not to lift anything heavy since I will be prone to bleeding until it does. I didn't have this problem with either of my previous pregnancies so telling me that is of no use. I've also decided that "heavy" is relative and therefore I shouldn't lift anything heavy, like say the broom, the dishes, the laundry, you know for the baby. I don't want to be accused of accidently disobeying Doctor's orders...

YAY!! Congrats. You will love spoiling that little girl with all the pink she can handle. (I'm assuming you like pink by the look of your blog *wink*).

Don't lift anything other than a laptop, k?

YAY AGAIN!

I had placenta previa and it did correct itself...very slowly. They were worried until I was pretty much ready to push because the were pretty positive I'd bleed like a stuck pig (nice thought, right?) but all was well.
Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yippee! Congrats! Take it easy. Don't lift anything heavier than a fork full of food.
