Azulito/a’s scheduled birth date is still June 9, 2015.
The placenta has not moved at all from my last ultrasound three weeks ago. A cesarean delivery is mandatory.
Thank you thank you thank you for your tremendous outpouring of support and kindness in response to my last post.
I am going to try my best to mentally prepare myself for the possibility that I may need an emergency hysterectomy on June 9th if the risk of placenta accreta (placenta invading uterine wall, posing risk of mom bleeding to death if not medically resolved, the most extreme means of which is removal of the entire uterus) becomes reality. I am going to will that not to happen but want to stay as calm as possible if it does. So that will be my new project.
That and surviving this awful nausea for the next 13 days.
I have to go back for one more ultrasound at the Perinatology (Maternal Fetal Medicine) Clinic on June 8th to make sure things remain on track.
Today baby A was estimated to weigh 6 lbs 4 oz – only a couple of ounces less than what the Miracle Toddler weighed at birth. Of course that estimate can be off by up to one pound at this late stage so the little one could weigh 5 lbs or 7 lbs or anywhere in between!
We are at T minus 13 days and counting, folks. Holy mackerel!
