Worried

Just had my 28 week scan and got some not so good news I have califications on both placentas. Was just wondering if anyone else has had this and is it something to be really worried about. ANy advice would be appreciated.

Hello Narla,
How did the rest of the scan go?
I know it can be hard not to worry, but if your BP and wee is ok, and your babies are following a growth curve, and there is enough fluid for them.... You are doing rather well! Do they want to see you again before you next routine appointment? That's often the best way to know how much of a problem the calcification is.

Hiya, Hun
I also had some calcification of my placenta. I agree with Mavis that as long as your little ones are growing well there is nothing to be concerned about. I think mine was noted a bit earlier in the pregnancy than yours has been and it only became an issue at 39 weeks when Connor, while still well, stopped growing and even appeared to have lost some weight. At that point the doc and I agreed that it was time for Mr to arrive.

Many women experience some degree of placental calcification even early in pregnancy (esp if your diet is high in calcium rich foods) and still carry their babies till term.

Protein in you wee, particularly if your BP is okay, can also be a sign of a water infection rather than anything else.
Good luck, Hun, and if you have any questions feel free to ask...

Thank you for the reassurance hopefully they will keep growing consultant said they were still growing well, to me tho they still very small at 2lb odd each. Hopefully next scan 4 may will still show them growing :)
