Yesterday I had a scan which had been scheduled due to a low lying placenta at my 20 week scan but when I was rushed in at 28 weeks, it was confirmed that the placenta had moved to where it should have been and all was well. I was actually going to cancel the scan but I had an anti natal appointment and it was a chance to see my boy again so I went in.
I am really glad that I did go in, I got a really nice Australian guy named Andrew who was really good at explaining what he was looking at, why and what he could see. Because little man is so active I had to go on left and right side to get measurements etc and if it wasn’t for Andrew’s thorough scanning, then it may not have been picked up that the placenta was in fact still low lying! I had an internal examination to confirm this and was sent to see my consultant right away who advised scanning again in 4 weeks and it would be then that decisions would be made.
I’m not nervous or concerned, there hasn’t been bleeding since the last stay in hospital and I know that I am in better hands as they seem to know what to look for. I just need to rest until the next scan, and all will be taken care of until then. I am quite worried at the fact that the other radiographer hadn’t seen the placenta issue but she was in a rush and wanted to go home, it was made clear on the day. I will be taking this further by asking questions and thankfully I did have another scan scheduled for it to have been picked up.
So that’s where I am now… supposed to be resting and finding it hard as there is so much to do in this house but I guess I will need to delegate and take it easy. Boring but I only have a few weeks left and I’m sure it will do me the world of good to just sit and relax before the sleepless nights start…ooooohhh! Its all good, I’m healthy, he’s healthy and we are both pretty happy
