So I went to my doctor today and.. adult content

he said baby girl will probably be here within the next week. He said I am dilated to 2 and cervix is very thin and also my placenta is dying....Have you ever heard of the placenta dying? I'm not worried I just found it interesting. If you are pregnant..where are you in your pregnancy? Close to the end? Its so hot to be pregnant right now!

(I didn't think this was adult content but flagged it just in case)

  • I would think if he said that your placenta is dying wouldnt he take your baby today??? The placenta is what gives the nutrients to your baby and your babys life line !!!! If i were you i would call a different doctor and ask them for a 2nd opinion ! To me that sounds really dangerous ! Good luck and i really hope you have a healthy baby

  • I would get a second opinion.. If your placenta is dying, you need to get your baby out!

  • Congrats!!! It's probably fine, but call again and make sure you know what's up with the "placenta is dying" bit. I'm not trying to scare you, but babies have died if the placenta dies before they are born. If your placenta is failing, you want to make sure the baby gets out in time. It could just be the doctor used the wrong word, or maybe it's just starting to "die" but he thinks you are safe to go another week. If I were you, I'd really want a clarification on what he's doing to make sure everything goes well. Good luck!!
