At my 20 week ultrasound, they found that my placenta was low lying and close to my cervix. We have another ultrasound happening at 26 weeks, and hopefully it has moved.
Guys, i don't know about you, but I have heard horror stories about c-sections. Like the mother looses too much blood, or has to be knocked out completely for it. I know with medical advancement I would be fine, I just really don't want a cesarean. I would love to have a vaginal birth, It's something I have wanted ever since I found out about my little peanut. :]
Can anyone with experience in this help? Is there hope that the placenta has moved to a safe spot for vaginal delivery?
I'm a first time mommy and I feel like such a dweeb getting this scared, but I don't know what to do.
I had Placenta Previa with my first. It didn't move (figures I'd be the lucky minority!) I started bleeding out (from other complications) and ended up having a section under GA - basically exactly what you're afraid of. And it was FINE. Not ideal, obviously, but me and my daughter are both happy and healthy now, I had no significant issues recovering after the birth (although I did need a blood transfusion) and I've dealt with it mentally.
When they told me I was going to have to have a section I bawled for ages. This time if they decide I need a second section then I'm ok with that. It doesn't matter how this baby is born as long as they are born alive and healthy.
