The much-anticipated ultrasound to check on the recalcitrant placenta happened this morning. It turned into a rather unexpected (and I must say most uncomfortable) date with dildocam on account of not being able to move Spudly's head out of the way. Even with the camera stuck up there they still couldnt see much, but it appears that the main body of the placenta is well away from the cervical os, and there may be a tiiiny sliver of placenta about 3cm from the opening , but its really hard to tell with a huge scone pressing on the cervix.
So far 3 out of 3 non medically trained women think this means he's fully engaged.
What I want to know is if this means labour is imminent or if I can still expect another two weeks of waddling around and trying to get out of my own way? Should I be washing out my peejays tonight and packing the snack bag? Dr Google does not seem to want to give me answers to these vital questions. Why choose NOW to be the silent brooding type, huh???
It's dawned on me over the course of the day that I'm not actually ready for this. Hmmm....
