I had my first appointment with my new OB today and I have to say that I am soooo glad that I switched. These people were so compassionate and caring they nearly made me cry. The OB was awesome - I told him about the movements and he did an ultrasound just to make me feel better! =D I knew everything was ok, espeially after I heard his heartbeat...152 which has been pretty consistant. The baby looked fine, but he did see something he didn't really like. My placenta is low-lying, but only on the right side. Does anyone have any info on this?? What problems it could potentially cause, etc? When should I worry if it hasn't fixed it's self??
Other than that...they started me on vitamins with DHA (yay!!) by request and even gave me loads of samples. I have another u/s on the 6th of March for sizing and to make sure everything is progressing right (the one today only lasted about 20 seconds, literally) and to confirm the fact I'm having a boy (like a penis is going to disappear, lmao)
I also had a prenatal massage today. It was soooo nice but it left me kinda sore!!
Glad to hear things went so well for you. Its always nice when you have good doctors with great bedside manner. Good luck with everything!!! Sorry I dont know anything about the low lying placenta though. You may want to try googling it to see if you can find anything out on it.
You're still early enough that the placenta could move up as your uterus grows! Risks involved in a low lying placenta that covers the cervix is you can't have the baby vaginally (you have to have a c-section) and the risk that it will detach early, causing bleeding!
Thanks. When I go up to bed tonight I'll look for it. I read up on it - everything I've read thus far says that 95% of cases corrects it's self. He did say that we couldn't have to worry about it until 27 weeks I think...Also, he told me that the top of my uterus is pretty high but my fundal height is perfect. He said that I just might be one of those women who carry "in" rather than out.
