When my midwife and OB was looking at the placenta with us, they mentioned tiny spots that might indicate aging and they also said her cord was a bit thinner then normal.
But they both said, most likely she was just a small baby (though she had shown no growth for 6 weeks).
She's definitely healthy lol she only lost an oz before leaving the hospital and then started gaining right away.
I progressed really quickly, so things got intense and hard to manage.
I also got really dizzy which made me anxious.
I had been practicing my hypnobabies stuff, but just couldn't do it once my labor started.
