It's a .....

GIRL!! Yes it's a official, my little Princess uncrossed her legs and cooperated finally. We're having a little girl, Ariel. Yay! I know what I'm having, I can finish my registries, I can go shopping (when I find money) and can stop calling her an it.

That's the good news, the bad is that I have a low lying placenta. Apparently it's somewhat common since I had a c-section with Monster. The placenta will just attach to the scar tissue. I don't think that is the issue here cause if that's what happened they would have noticed in the two other ultrasounds I had in the past month. So that leads me to think that the placenta has been migrating down, instead of up like some other women that have this issue.

Now the short list of restrictions I was given at the ultrasound is no sexual intercourse, nothing in the vagina, no baths (which I wasn't doing anyway), no lifting over 10lbs, and to watch for spotting and/or bleeding. Now the no lifting over 10lbs means I can't lift my son at all. I also after calling back to check cause my mom brought it up, I can't push him in a stroller either! This basically means that me and Monster are stuck at home unless we get someone to come out with us. Since I can't put him in the car seat, I can't push the stroller, I can't pick him up if he throws a fit, etc.

I'm just kind of wishing they had noticed this earlier cause I wouldn't have moved into Project Life. Because basically now I need someone with me to help out. I can't do pretty much anything with Monster, I can't go grocery shopping, and I can't even really do my laundry cause when it's all done it's over 10lbs. Which to give some insight to how little 10lbs is, the MacBook I'm using right now is 6lbs, yes Boyfriend weighed it last night before letting me take it home.

I'm hoping that when I go for my prenatal appointment I can explain everything to my midwife and get a note listing all the restrictions and possible get her to write that I need to have someone with me to help out. Cause Project Life at the moment, just blew this off, well my case manager there did, she was just like he's 2 he, walks, you don't need to carry him, you just need someone to help with groceries. Um no lady, I need someone to help with a lot of shit. Plus he's 2 years old, not 5! There are times when you need to pick up a toddler, like when they throw a tantrum, if they are hurt or sick (Goddess forbid) or if they fall asleep somewhere.

Wish me luck this weekend.
