midway through this pregnancy we found out i had something called placenta previa.
dylan and i had never heard of this condition before. it means that the placenta is in the way of the cervix which means you need a c section or the mother or baby could die.
at first when we found out about this condition i was a little worried and sad but also realized there are much worse problems that are associated with pregnancy and if i needed to have a c section it wouldn't be the end of the world. for the last few months dylan and i and other loved ones have joined us in prayer hoping the placenta would move so that i would be able to have a vaginal delivery.
yesterday we had our ultrasound and found out that the placenta has moved away from the cervix and we can move forward with our plans for a vaginal delivery. yay!
while i was sitting in the waiting room to enter the ultrasound area i started getting really anxious and nervous. i didn't know for sure if dylan would be able to join me for the ultrasound and i really wanted him there. after waiting for about a half hour i looked up and saw him walking towards me and couldn't help but get emotional. it was a relief to have him there and i'm so grateful i get to have him by my side in life. when the ultrasound tech told us the placenta wasn't covering the cervix anymore dylan said, "lizzie! that is what we came here to hear."
we got to see this little profile image of our baby boy. he is estimated to be 3.7 lbs. so excited to meet him!
