Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" I'm unsure if they checked, but...I'm sure they did. The weird thing is....I had an ultrasound the ... [snip!] ... I haven't heard anything about my placenta. I noticed...they really didn't give me much information as to why/what happened."
My placenta was sent out for testing too and there was a follow-up appointment with my OB afterwards.
Oh and I should add that my son is just fine now. They found out that he has a tiny bit of extra information on his Y chromosome and both of his hands the single line simian crease which is very unusual, but nothing spectacularly interesting that will affect him growing up.
His weight started dropping off the chart around 30 weeks. After several appointments where they were sure what was going on and an amnio, I was induced at 37 weeks (exactly). They estimated he was going to be under 5lbs. He was 5lbs 7oz. He also never went to the NICU. He has some slight issues keeping his temp up though. My delivery room looked like death-con-one though. There was a NICU team there, my high risk dr (high risk for other reasons), 3 different ob's, a student ob, a team of nurses. All of that for a baby that was born perfectly healthy. lol
Weight and height is around the 50% for his age (2.5) now.
