Expecting

Yes (as we announced on Facebook) we are expecting again. Due September 15. Now if you are thinking we 'messed' up on our having babies in August (Cailyn and Jared are both August).....Jared was due in September.

I go for an US the end of the month. And of course am curious as to where my placenta is (Jared was a complete previa). So upon looking up stats....
1 in 200 pregnancies are previas....or some stats say risk for Aged 20-29 years - 0.33%
for me to have one again stats say 12x the chance and others say 4-8% chance.
Another stat is
Placenta previa occurs in 0.3-0.5% of all pregnancies and out of those pregnancies the chance to have a complete previa ranges from 20-45%.

We are hoping that I don't have this complication again - but we are also completely aware that I am at a higher risk.

To us all that really matters is the baby is healthy. All Cailyn wants is a girl baby sister because she already has a brother so she doesn't need another brother. We are working on explaining to her you can't pick whether you get a boy or a girl.
