21 Weeks Pregnant

I had another prenatal appointment this morning. My doc and I discussed the ultrasound findings with baby’s heart and agreed that it may not be of any significance. She also mentioned that in the ultrasound report, it said that my placenta was too low (placenta previa). My doc said that as my uterus grows, the placenta could move upwards as well, or it could just stay low. If it stays low I’ll have to have another C-section. I’m okay with it if I have to have the surgery. The recovery went well last time and I know we have tons of friends and loved ones to help out while I recover. It would just be nice not to have to be cut open ( I suppose that generally is a good thing). On the other hand, if I have to have a C-section, that means it would be planned and I wouldn’t have to endure labor this time around. So of course, we’ll do whatever is safest for the baby. The risks of a repeat C-section versus not having one are pretty much the same for me. I have another ultrasound in mid-October to check on the position of the placenta. I’m hoping it moves.
