Baby #3 update

A week ago I went in for a follow up ultrasound to check on my low lying placenta. Today I had an appointment with my midwife and went over the results.

Thankfully my placenta has moved slightly and there is no sign of placenta previa. As my uterus grows it is expected that my placenta will continue to move appropriately out of the way.

On a different note, they found one of the baby's kidney's is measuring larger than the normal ranges. Of course, whenever you go in for an ultrasound all you want to hear is that your baby is perfect, everything looks great, etc, etc. So this wasn't the news I wanted to hear but it does sound like this is somewhat common. I will need to go in for another follow up ultrasound in a few weeks. If the baby still has numbers out of the normal range they will notify pediatrics at delivery so they can check that everything is okay. I of course briefly looked online for what this could mean and quickly decided that was pointless. I worry enough naturally as is, I surely do not want to make that worse. Please pray that all is well with our little one, that this is nothing serious and that our follow up ultrasound will show the kidneys as normal. Thank you for your prayers!
