Pregnancy Update: Week #20! Halfway There!

I cannot believe we are over halfway there! I’ll be having a repeat c-section so my doctor won’t let me go past 39 weeks so we are definitely past the halfway point.

So far this pregnancy has been a lot harder than my previous pregnancy. I’m not sure if it’s because I also have a toddler to take care of or because my body just went through this last year but either way, it’s just been rough.

Rough Pregnancy

Baby is doing well though! I have an anterior placenta so I haven’t been able to feel him but I have a Doppler and check on him every so often. At my anatomy scan, I found out that I have placenta previa. My doctor is somewhat concerned because my placenta is laying right on top of my c-section scar and is only 1cm above my cervix. I have an appointment in 6 weeks to see if my placenta has moved. If not, the doctor is worried it’ll turn into placenta accreta. If that happens, I’ll be delivering at 36 weeks!

I also have been experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome. At night I have to wear a wrist brace and during the day, my wrist is in pain and my hand is numb 60% of the day.

Do We Want Another?

Everyone keeps asking if we will have more but as of right now, my answer is 99.99% NO. I don’t know if I want to go through all of this again to be honest. My first pregnancy was a lot easier than this. I didn’t want this post to sound like me complaining about this pregnancy but I also wanted to be honest. I can’t wait until we meet this little bub!
