Extremely Large Placental Lake
soolai posted:
I am having a difficult time finding any information on very large placental lakes. I am a bit over 13 weeks pregnant with a little boy. I just saw my Perinatologist and was diagnosed with a 40-50% placental lake. Now, I know that placental lakes, if small are not worrisome; however, my Dr. said this is worrisome and that it is something that will not go away. I am a SAHM of triplet 5 year olds and a 25 lb. 19 month old. I am very busy, and am not sure how to "take it easy". Help? Anyone???

Hi I know this message was from 3 years ago but your the first person I've seen mention large lakes and I've been searching for weeks I also have a large lake half the size of my placenta and I would love to hear from you to see how your pregnancy went. I do hope all went well for you. I have two little girls age 18 months and 3 years taking it easy is not an option for me either I totally understand you. Anyway I do hope you see this message and you can help me to gain more info as i am feeling drained from searching . Thank you
