HDBD 5/4 — The Bump
Pregnant after 35

HDBD 5/4

Starting it a little early again - my daughter didn't want to go to bed tonight after our ECFE class, so I have a feeling tomorrow morning is going to be trying...  

SO, cheer me up and let's see your bumps!!!

  • @emsmama15 that's interesting about the placenta deciding when they are born. Do you know if that is true for all pregnancies or just twins?

    9/5/18 Diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve (4-5 follicles, one ovary had none and was very atrophied)

    RE says the low egg count is likely causing my recurrent pregnancy loss. Less eggs results in more aneuploidy.

  • @CarrieandRoy - that's what he was saying - the placenta is kind of in charge of things, I guess.  I'd never heard this before, it was kind of interesting.  He was saying that with twins, the placenta ages faster and that a 38 week twin placenta is about equivalent to a 41 week singleton placenta.  I didn't ask, but I'm curious why it ages faster in twins - especially if you have two placentas, like I do.

  • Yeah, I could see how one placenta feeding two babies could get depleted faster, but two separate ones seem like they'd be fine.

    I had been wondering what determines when a baby is born. I also can't wrap my head around how my body knows how to create a human being from scratch, with working organs and stuff.
