So I had my 6week doctor's appt yesterday. The main discussion was regarding my placenta. The pathology report indicated that the placenta had multiple areas of infarction (little heart attacks where blood flow to an area is cut off and that area dies). About 10% of the placenta was infarcted. The dead area can then bleed. The cause of the infarction is unknown. Could be because of the placenta previa I had. The doctor also mentioned that it could be that I have a clotting disorder. If I do have a clotting disorder then the placenta problems would likely happen again with another pregnancy. So we decided to run all the blood tests to rule out a clotting disorder (I'll know in a few days). Other than that I have a bill of clean health and do whatever I want.
