How's this for weird?

I have not one but two placentas. The ultrasound technologist who informed me of this was nonchalant about it and said that it isn't uncommon, but I had never heard of such a thing. There wasn't much information online aside from forum posts by people who sound as surprised as I am. I'll have to ask my OB about it. In the meantime, tests show that the baby is doing well. If he can just stay put for another week, he'll be considered full term. Yay!

Do these placentas make me look fat?

I said the same thing on Facebook. Doesn't two placenta's make it twins that you're having??? I know you know that you're not but I know my daughter had three placenta's when she was expecting the triplets.

He got two and that's a fact but no one knows where the other one's at
