Today we had our follow-up ultrasound. At our 20 week scan, we found out that I had complete placenta previa, and that baby had a CCAM on her lung and possibly also VSD. It was so stressful and upsetting. I’ve been trying very hard not to worry about this ultrasound for the last month.
But today, everything was good news. The CCAM is still tiny. We’ll have to keep checking up on it to make sure it doesn’t suddenly become much larger, but the doctor anticipates that it will actually start shrinking pretty soon and won’t be an issue at all. My placenta appears to be moving out of the way. Instead of complete, it’s now only partial. Fingers crossed that 16 more weeks sees that sucker moving completely out of the way.
The best news was that there was no evidence of the possible VSD. That is a huge weight off my shoulders, since it was the thing I was most worried about.
In all, it was a great appointment. Before we left, the doctor said, “You have a lot to be thankful for,” and we do. A healthy pregnancy and baby girl is all that we could possibly ask for, and we are so, so lucky to have both.
I hit the 24 week mark tomorrow (or in 45 minutes.) Only 16 weeks left until she’s finally here. I hope those 16 weeks go fast!
Oh! And our doctor told us it’s high time we start looking for a pediatrician. Pedia-what?! How are we already at the point where we need to start looking at doctors for the baby?!
