Jacob is considered as a preemie. I carried him to 37 weeks almost 38, but he is a preemie due to his size and complications. I went to my OB this past Monday and she told me why Jacob was so small. I had tons of blood clots on my placenta. It was tested. There is a name for it - but I forgot. He is known as IUGR baby. These blood clots cut off his nutrition. Thank goodness for the ultrasound that day. They did not pick up the clots but saw how stressed he was. Now for me, I had to get 9 vials of blood taken for other tests. They have to see what kind of birth control to put me on. They also said, if we are considering a third child which we aren't - I would need to get further testing.Nicholas' placenta was normal - just small because of my high blood pressure. I am glad we finally had answers!!!
