I no longer have previa of any kind. Hot damn.
Imagine if you will, a peaceful but undulating venous lake at the lower margin of my placenta.
Imagine that because of said lake, I will get rechecked week 36/37 and if it is still lakeish (80% chance of being so), I will get an amnio to test for the baby's lung development, and proceed to a fucking C-section.
If labor before then, emergency c-section. (no worries! he said, we do them all the time!)
Now, on the good side, I am very glad I went to the specialist.
First of all, I adore him. He is geeky, talks to me like I have a brain, is clear, no bullshit, but kind and direct.
Second, he stood hip to hip with the US tech and they did a very thorough exam, doppler flow, heart rate, baby looks great, and yeah, oh, how interesting! venous lake.
So I definitely feel well cared for and we all have the same outcome in mind: healthy baby, healthy kate.
But I did want to have the chance at a vaginal delivery, I really did.
