So I went to the dr last Friday and had asked about my placenta being low lying cuz when in had my ultrasound in dec the tech had mentioned it, or so I thought. And I had it with my previous kids. But always corrected itself with time. Well the dr told me that it wasn't the case. She told me my baby has a marginal umbilical cord. Which means the cord isn't attached in the middle but on the edge of the placenta. This could cause low birth weight as not enough nutrients can reach the baby. Also poses a higher risk for csection if the cord is too low. I am terrified to have a csection and absolutely DO NOT want to do that. also I'm worried that my baby won't be healthy if she can't get all the nutrients she needs. I have to go in for a level 2 ultrasound on Wednesday and I'm so worried! My appt was supposed to be next week but I'm freaking out and couldn't wait that long. So I called and made a soon appt. Has anyone ever experienced this? We're ur babies healthy? I could use advice, stories or even some funnies to occupy my mind til Wednesday!!
