I am 25 weeks pregnant today. 25 WEEKS!? Seriously. Time is going at warp speed here. So much has happened in the last several weeks I don't even know where to begin. Directly after unveiling Baby W #2's name we were accused of "stealing" his name... that was fun. Then a week later we had a not so perfect visit for or 5 month OBGYN and discovered I had complete placenta previa. Our doctor was concerned of rupturing placenta, and in a town our small we would be faced with losing Kingston, or even on top of that me bleeding out. It is when you're faced with real issues that the trivial seem even more absurd then before.
Was put on pelvic rest - I am so glad to report that at our 6 month visit my placenta had migrated by itself and it seems we are almost in the clear. Just praying for the additional movement needed for my doctor to consider me in the clear. If it doesn't move I will remain on pelvic rest and they will schedule a c-section for me.
