I'll start with the good news because hopefully it will make every one of my 16 followers as happy as I am! We had our ultrasound on Tuesday and the baby is a GIRL. I know- do the happy dance- woohoo! Audrey Mayne is her name. We are so in love already!
The not so good news...
You remember a couple of posts back about that subchorionic hematoma (blood clot) thingy well it's gone. (okay good news I guess) Unfortunately I am still bleeding so they had to figure out why. It appears that my cervix is effacing early. :( I am measuring at 2.4 cm in length when it should be 4.0+. They normally don't begin to worry about the thinning unless you drop below 2.5. It looks like the sac is starting to funnel into the cervix but they can't tell for sure. I also have a low lying placenta which is called placenta previa. I think that the low lying placenta is what's causing the bleeding but the thinning cervix could also cause bleeding as well. They aren't sure which one is causing it. For some people they put a stitch in called a cerclage but they think it's too risky to do in my case because they could possibly rupture the sac. So I'm on bedrest. Which means I will have plenty of time to update my blog and read everyone elses and end up liking a million others! :)
Please pray guys. God is the only one who can handle this situation and we pray that he will allow us to have this sweet baby girl a part of our family. We want her to stay inside to keep growing so she can come join our family as a healthy little girl. :)
