I just found out I have an enlarged placenta and Idk what that means I was too shocked to ask the nurse questions when she called I'll have to call back. Has anyone had this or heard of this?!

Well. When I gave birth to my daughter they were shocked at how large my placenta was. All they said was "that was one well nourished baby!"

I wouldn't worry about it. The doctor may want to monitor it more and send you for more frequent ultrasounds depending.

it could be fine, just means your body is growing baby well!
or it could mean theres a problem with baby getting or your body giving enough nutrients/oxygen, or a lost twin.
