Anyone heard of this? At my 20 week ultrasound the tech said i had an accessory lobe placenta. Basically i have a big placenta and a small one attached next to it. Very uncommon (16 in every 10,000 pregnancies) and bc the 2 are connected by blood vessels can be serious during delivery if it ruptures? Im freaked of course. Also can be caused by conceiving twins and mother losing one twin (my 2 massive bleeding episodes?) and retaining the second baby. wth? idk ive had to SMOOTH pregnacies prior to this and this just worries me. Also if the umbilical cord is attached to the small placenta it can cause problems with growth. Im worried. if you wouldnt mind saying a prayer i'd appreciate it. Oh, and its a GIRL! :) (I have 2 boys so im thrilled)
Any info on this would be appreciated thx
