Update on this adventurous pregnancy!

So today I went in for an ultrasound and saw the doctor as well. I still have placenta previa. That hasn't moved. I also still have some blood at the top of the uterus. It was also detected that my amniotic fluid is low. Tomorrow I will go to see a maternal fetal specialist. I have no idea what to expect or what they will say. I don't feel worried. I think things will be ok. I didn't bring any pictures home from this ultasound becuase it was really hard to see. When the fluid is low, it makes it harder to see. She was able to see and meaure a few things like the brain, heart, bladder, kidneys, spine. She couldn't see the stomach. And she couldn't get a good measurement of the trapped blood. Amniotic fluid is considered low when it is measuring 5 cm. Mine was 3 cm. So, we'll see what happens tomorrow. I'm still feeling him kick, though!

Christina, I am so sorry. That is so hard. My mom had Plecenta Previa with me, and everything was fine. You are so good to have a positive attitude. I am sure things will be fine.
