Hi all! smile.gif
After six miscarriages, I am now excited to be 23 weeks pregnant. At my 20wk ultrasound, my placenta was C shaped and had a membrane like connection to itself. The very seasoned tech stated quite assuredly that I would be referred to a specialist in a larger town. Howe er, the OB blew it off as nothing.
I am 40. And this is my 12th pregnancy, 7th living child.
Also, this is not the first time tech has said something would be watched or noted, and the Ob just blew it off.
I have Googled 'til I am blue in the face, and can not seem to find anything on it. It was like a crescent moon shape with a bridge. Really odd to me.
Thanks for any input!!

Have you tried searching based on the terms, "Placenta fold over" or "placenta disorders"?     I tried this and it yielded results that sort of sound like what you described above.


I hope the best for you and your baby.
