This pregnancy really is flying by – I am now 33 weeks pregnant and on the home stretch. As I mentioned on Instagram I have been having a few extra scans as the 20 week scan showed a low lying placenta. At 32 weeks it was still low so I have now been scheduled in to see a specialist at 36 weeks and they will make the final call on whether I can safely give birth to the baby or if I need to booked in for a c-section. In all honesty I really do not mind which way she comes… both ways have their benefits and negatives. I was looking forward to an easier natural birth as people say it usually is the second time around, and I now I know what to expect during and after I felt prepared. But I also like the idea of knowing exactly when she is coming if we did have a c-section and I can plan accordingly with Vivienne in mind. But the recovery time and not being able to carry Vivienne worries me. What will be will be, I am pretty relaxed either way. And excited!
