no idea, but i'm sure if it was an issue you would be monitored. especially given your history.

well, i'm sure you have nowt to worry about. when are you due to see him again?

all fine here, last day in work. 2 weeks till edd. still can't belive it if im honest!

itching still there but bile acids not gone over the magic number required for treatment. had the mysterious cosmofer. it was fine, hands were a bit battered as they could not get the canula in. iron levels still not very high though. no chance of being transferd back to mlc.

hijacked your thread there a bit! sorry blush

I had large placenta with DS, was told it didn't mean anything. There are conditions where it is a factor but there would be other indicators.

DS has no problems.

Sorry I don't, I didn't have any so the discussion ended there.

yes they made a fuss, had a little cry! i'm resigned to being stuck in the consultant unit now. just a shame as the mlu has just been built and looks lovely. and i have to have a canula in so don't know if i will be able to get into the pool like i wanted.

small price to pay i suppose.

I heard that you can get a larger placenta if you're really bothered by morning sickness. As though the body builds in extra to ensure the baby continues to get enough nutrients. No big deal.

I had a large one with dd. No one commented, just pointed it out to me once I'd finally delivered it (and large dd).

I had a large placenta and very chunky umbilical cord (well me plus baby did!). Midwife had to go off and get bigger scissors (or whatever they use) to cut it with. They said it was wonderfully healthy and juicy! haha

DS was a big baby and had no morning sickness what so ever ;)

Good Luck!
