I didn't question her about the size of the sac. It may have been the size of a little toe. She volunteered the size of the placenta.
She described something I've never heard before. She said that as he opened the sac, they could clearly see the baby and the head, but as soon as the sac was opened, the contents started to change. She said it was hard to describe but that the baby lost its shape almost immediately. They both saw this happen and I don't doubt her.
She is having communication problems with her OB throughout this which is part of the problem. Phone calls are not being returned. She asked for a test of her HcG levels last week when she was pretty sure that she had lost the baby. The OB told her no and ordered her to keep using her progesterone. Her idea is that the progesterone possibly led to the enlarged placenta. Are they related? She is also concerned that the progesterone has caused part of the placenta to not release. It did appear complete when she delivered it, but she is not 100% certain of this. She is hesitant to OB shop during such an emotional event. She's known for a couple weeks that this was a loss, but has continued to take her progesterone to sustain it which has done a number on her emotions.
