hi...can i rejoin?

Hello!! I haven't been around at all since just after my BFP. Maddox reached out to me a while back, which was so very sweet. I'd like to be around more, I really enjoyed my other two birth boards. I read Marie's post about coming back and she inspired me to reintroduce myself.

I'm Courtney, 31, married to Aaron for 10 years. We have a DD 6 and a DS 3. I developed pre-e with DD but had a very uncomplicated pregnancy with DS. DD was born with a cleft palate, which was repaired at 10 months and she has no recurring problems from it. Because of that, we have high risk ultrasounds done to check for a cleft. We got the results back from it a little over a week ago and no cleft was detected! It was determined at that appointment that I have placenta previa. I'm on complete pelvic rest with the possibility of bed rest later. So far I haven't bled. I'll have another ultrasound at 30 weeks. We did not find out the gender!

I am excited to get more involved!

Welcome back!

Good news re the cleft palate! Sorry to hear about the P-previa though, but no bleeding so far is a good thing.

Do you want to find out at the next scan or is it a conscious decision to keep it a secret? When are you due?

It was a conscious decision! I really wanted to be surprised with this one since we already have boy and a girl. I'm much more on board with the surprise than dh...he is definitely humoring me! I'm due December 8th....just over 26 weeks right now.

Welcome back Courtney. Glad that everything with the baby is good so far other then the placenta previa. Hopefully it moves and doesnt cause issues. Do you have any feeling either way on if this lil one is a boy or a girl? Your due 2 days after me.

Courtney!!!!!! I thought you were here and then I didn't see you. I am due 1/5 so am straddling bb and also didn't find out gender. Will more than likely deliver in december if history repeats itself! I am so happy for you. I am so sorry for the previa, if you recall that is what I had with Hayden and mine was an ANGRY one! That is awesome that you haven't had any bleeds!!! I have seen plenty of previas go to 36+ weeks! Keep up the good work. If you have questions or need to vent about bed rest feel free to message me. Hang in there girl. PS: I haven't posted anything on fb as people at work and some family don't even know yet!

KATIE!!!! How exciting to share a BB with you again! I absolutely remember your angry previa with Hayden!! Mine doesn't seem to bad so far, and I'm *hoping* it will move before the birth. Maybe not, but a girl can hope!! My doc said there is definitely a chance of that, although I shouldn't count on it. Anyway...YAY!! It's always fun to see a familiar face! I won't mention anything on FB either, Biggrin

:lurk:
:bighug: sorry about the previa. I'm dealing with one, also. Mine was complete at 18w and turned marginal at 28w. At 32w I was told it was back right next to my cervix. Thankfully, mine has otherwise behaved well so far.
I hope yours resolves. It's so stressful.

Thank you! It is stressful! I'm anxious to see if it's moved at all. Sorry yours moved back, that is annoying!
