NO PLACENTA PREVIA (not even marginal)
NO VASA PREVIA
Yes, I am going for a second opinion to a maternal fetal medicine specialist whom I already know and trust. They gave me a referral and I am waiting for the call with the appointment time.
But as of this moment, after this most amazing ultrasound appointment (it turns out she is one of the top US experts in the country, which I absolutely believe-- 45 minute exam, internal, external, careful, thorough, with doppler etc.)-- I now find myself (quite surprisingly) in the vaginal birth at term category.
Baby is 3 lbs 10 oz (holy crap)
I am up 24 lbs (all belly, breasts, and upper thighs in a 95/4/1 percent ratio)
I am stunned, dizzy, dazzled, exhausted, relieved is not a big enough word, I want to cry, to sleep, to lie on the sofa and spend the next 6 hours feeling the baby move.
The baby is head down, head right tucked in as it should be to get ready for the big reveal...(now I know what is where, I know what I thought was a knee is a butt)---
Holy crap people, what a wild ride THIS is.
I want to run around in circles, laugh, cry, jump up and down (ok, in reality only two of those four are actually options).
In this moment, it's all good.
