    I had the second anomaly scan yesterday, and the good news is that the placenta praevia is only marginal so I'm not at any great risk of bleeding and I don't have to be on strict bed rest :D Also, babies ventricles haven't enlarged since the last scan and are under the limits for ventriculomegaly so that doesn't need monitoring until later on :D

    Unfortunately, the placenta is anterior, over my old c-section scars and embedded into the muscle. The new section will have to be done with an up/down incision over my belly button (not that my midriff has seen daylight recently but :( ) and there's a high chance they'll need to do a hysterectomy if the placenta continues to go through the muscle.

    And after all that, she still couldn't tell if it was a boy or a girl. Next scan in 6 weeks
