I found out during an ultrasound yesterday that I have a "baby placenta" as well as my regular placenta. My OB didn't seem overly concerned and I didn't ask many questions but now that I've googled it, I'm worried.
My last pregnancy had a surprise velamentous inserted cord that was not discovered until delivery despite ultrasound. Supposedly they are hard to detect?
And now, again, despite numerous ultrasounds this pregnancy, I just learned yesterday at 36 weeks, I have this weird placenta problem.
What is this? What are the risks?
As it is, I've been worried about delivery because this baby is measuring bigger than my previous 2 and I had a hard time birthing them vaginally due to a small pelvis (big episiotimies, forceps, etc...)
NOW I'm REALLY WORRIED about a vaginal birth with the strange placenta. And even more worried that I have another velamentous inserted cord that he hasn't detected since reading online says the 2 problems can be linked.
Help! Anyone have experience with these issues?
I'm already 2cm. dilated and 50% effaced.
