Baby Update

Oops! I almost forgot!

I went to the doctors today. I gained five pounds. Dr. U. said that my placenta will not be going anywhere at this part of my pregnancy. My next appointment is in 2 weeks (aaah! that means 3rd trimester!!!) and they will send me for another sonogram at that point. So, a cesarean is inevitable.

They routinely do c-sections at 39 weeks (unlike Hopkins' recommendation at 37 weeks). So, I guess my first c-section is going to happen ... I'm just not going to think about that right now.

Oh man, I'm sorry.

I think a c-section is rather scary too. I'm thinking about you.

Ooh. Well, we can hope for a change, right? I'm sorry Lera. But a healthy baby regardless, right?

It's good that you have some time to prepare for it and to adjust.

You are welcome to a funny money template, but I have no idea how to put it on my blog, so either give me some techie advice or send me your e-mail! My address is on my sidebar (couldn't find yours)
