Re: Battledore Placenta

  • Huh, I've actually never heard this term.

    When I saw your post title I thought you were trying to make a joke about a battle with your placenta like "Placentagate" or something ;) 

    I just googled it to figure out what it is though and it seems like it's not of huge concern.  I hope your more in-depth U/S comes back with good news!

    Totally thought the same thing.

    I actually thought this was a term out of Harry Potter or something.

  • I am 21 weeks today and found out last Friday that I have marginal cord insertion (battledore placenta). Doctor said that we just have to watch monthly with an u/s to make sure that the baby is growing as he should. It is a concern that he is only feeding from one side of the placenta and that could cause low brith weight. Right now i'm in the 53% for his weight which is great. 10% doctor will put me on bed rest and 3% will have to do a c-section. This all scares me to death but all I can do is take it month by month and wait for next u/s.
  • yes I went in today for my second ultrasound and will go back in 6 weeks they just want to make sure she is getting the nutrients she needs to grow, and that they only thing I should be worried about is the low birth weight so no 10lb babies haha I liked that news. I also like that I get to see her on an u/s every 6 weeks : )
