|2/19/13 - 20 wk ultrasound - The Placenta Problems Surface
Had my 20 wk ultrasound today. Was nervous about the spina bifida and growth development of baby. Everything from that perspective looks great.
The problems rise in the placenta. I was told I have a Complete Placenta Previa. And in 90-95% of cases, the placenta will move up during your pregnancy but in my case they don't belive this will happen. I also have a suspected placenta accreta. This is where you placenta attaches to your uterine wall. More than likely during delivery my placenta will not release itself from the wall and the need for a hysterectomy is likely. I cried and cried because if my chances of conceiving a 4th child is now gone that I would have a really hard time with that. We talked about having 4 kids so this would really be hard on me.
I at the same time would be very gracious for being blessed with 3 beautiful healthy children, but knowing that your your uterus is gone at such a young age is also something that was hard for me to come to terms with. But, I am so thankful that this is my third pregnancy and this condition did not take place with my second which would be even more devasting.
