27 Week Update

I just wanted to give you an update on Baby Girl Fitts. Everything looks WONDERFUL!! At 16 weeks I had placenta previa and was told I have a 2 vessel umbilical cord. Of course they told me not to worry and we would look at everything at 27 weeks. I tried my best not to worry and really was optimistic that everything was going to be okay but there was the small fear of a c-section and slow growth due to the 2 vessel cord. Plus, anytime someone would say "you are so tiny for this being your 3rd kid" it would scare me and really started getting annoying because I would think "is she not growing? why am I so small? what is wrong with me or her?" You know the million questions a mother-to-be has running through her head.

 I am happy to say at 27 weeks my placenta has moved and I am on track for a vaginal birth. Then with the 2 vessel cord she is growing right on track. She is approx. 2lbs 6oz and in the 50th percentile. They told me she looks great and to keep on keeping on like I am going and no need to come back for another ultrasound.

They did tell me my due date looks more like Jan 28th as originally given but who knows!! She is VERY LOW and wouldn't be surprised for another quick labor. I am thinking about camping out at the hospital around Jan 27th!!

Now I feel like I can really enjoy the rest of this pregnancy without as much worry.  Thank you Lord for all your blessings.

 I am one happy mommy!!!

I appreciate any of your continued thoughts and prayers as Baby Girl grows. 
We will see her in about 3 months!!
