Marginal Placenta

Feb 06, 2012 - 2 comments

Had my 20 week scan, and baby is a GIRL!  That makes 3 girls for us.  She looked great, but is measuring a week behind.  Not a big deal right now, but I will have a scan every 4 weeks to monitor growth and fluid levels.  I have a marginal placenta, which means the umbilical cord attached to the side of the placenta rather than in the middle, and that could potentially inhibit nutrients and oxygen reaching the baby and cause IUGR.  Dr. is not too concerned right now, but will watch me closely further on, and if the growth does happen to slow down then I will be induced early.  I am hoping it doesn't come to that and baby girl thrives and grows well!

Thanks Kim!   Everything looked good, and the placenta and cord looked better at this scan.  The placenta grew out on the side of the cord attachment so it's not as close the edge anymore.  Nothing like hearing good news to bring some peace to my mind!  Hope you and little miss Emma are well!
