Re: partial molar pregnacy
I was told at 17 weeks I had a partial molar. They had found a large cystic mass on and around the placenta. We were told that this was definitely a partial mole. 2 days later we say a perinatoligist and had an amnio and u/s done. The results came back from the amnio great. They showed no problems, which was ironic since the doctor was sure that there would be issues since it is VERY RARE to give birth to a healthy full term baby when facing a partial mole. They braced us for all the possible maternal problems, bleeding, pre eclampsia, cancer and so on... I'm now 39 weeks and due any day. The baby is great, yet the mass is still there. They will send it pathology after delivery to see if they can figure out what it is. In an u/s it looks EXACTLY like a molar pregnancy. I wouldn't freak just yet. After this experience, I found that doctor's don't always know the answer to everything! Good luck and I'll be thinking about you!
