How could I forget?!
When I went in for my OB appointment after my 20 ultrasound, Dr.K did tell me that not only is my placenta anterior, it's also very low lying. So low, in fact, that it's hard to tell, from ultrasound, whether or not it's covering my cervix. She's not worried about it, yet, as Mrs.Cervix still has time to move out of the way (and she says they often do..) but she wants to send me for another ultrasound in 8 weeks, at my 30 week mark. This will be to check to see if it's moved off my cervix, as planned. If it hasn't, we'll be scheduling a C-Section and won't be allowing me to go into labor, AT ALL. It will become an emergency situation at the point that I do go into labor and a emergency c-section will be performed. We're hoping that it doesn't get to that point, but we'll have to see.
