I was just diagnosed with this on Monday (19 weeks). The midwife said everything should be fine because I am healthy and not overweight, but I am freaking out. I’ve never heard of this and I just googled it (I know, stupid) and there’s all sorts of scary things. Have any of you bees had this?

doxiedog1088 : I haven’t had this, but I have a velamentous cord insertion which is a fairly uncommon placental abnormality and I was pretty freaked out for a while (ok, still freaked out). I of course googled it and read some scary stuff, but my high-risk OBs keep telling me it’s ok and they are monitoring my little guy very closely! You could ask for a consult with a high-risk OB (i.e. MFM doctor) if you are concerned – maybe it would make you feel better? Good luck!

RunnerBride13 : thanks for your reply! I actually already see high risk doctors because of other issues. The midwife that told me I had it acted like it was no big deal, but after internet searching it seems like it is! I just want to make sure they are monitoring me correctly. She didn’t mention any other actions that needed to be taken regarding it.
