It appears as though I had placental problems. At 26 weeks, she was in the 48%ile. Thoughtout the third trimester, her growth rate slowed despite me having gestational diabetes. She was born at 38.5 weeks, and she was in the 5%ile. During my last two weeks of pregnancy, I started spilling protein and I had documented severe preeclampsia. At birth, she was diagnosed with IUGR and SGA. By one month of age, she had 4 hemangiomas. One large one on her bottom and small ones on her chest, forhead, and behind her ear.
I don't know if there is a placenta sample available. I don't remember signing documentation for it during my C-section. I had the C-section because my daughter was breech and I had high blood pressure.
