I was wondering if anyone can shed any light on this situation.
I am 39w5d with my first baby.
At my 38 week check i asked the midwife when they would do a sweep, she said on my next appointment 40w1d now another midwife said not a chance till i am 41 weeks.
I am nervous about going overdue and i have had 2 family members go overdue only for baby to die, due to placenta not working as well. Both over 41w.
I had a growth scan yesterday (as baby has been measuring on the large side) baby is still measuring on 95% but sonographer is happy with that.
The sonographer said that my placenta is grade 2 and mature with calcium deposits ( i have never smoked) The consultant said don't worry its not an issue, baby has been very active up till wed this week, the movements have slowed down and changed. I explained this and consultant said keep an eye on it but i am sure it's fine.
I spoke to my midwife to try to get some info on the placenta issue and she said i have no idea what that is about.
Not sure now if i should be worried or just relax.
