As my doctor was finishing up my c/s, I over heard them talking about the placenta and what they should do with it. One nurse said they could just discard it but RIGHT before they did I actually asked to SEE it LOL! I was so curious this entire pregnany as to what my placenta looks like (gross I know lol) But I found it really fascinating that this is the structure that connected me and my baby and that was my babys life source before birth..The nurses brought it over so that I could see it (they had it in some kind of container with a lid) and I thought it was SO COOL LOL! AND it was HUGE!

Huh I didn't know it was an option to see it..I might ask too! Heck some people eat it so I figure just to see it wouldn't be bad!

It is kinda cool to look at and think about. To think that our body makes this entire organ for one purpose and then discards it when it has done its job.

I was mad when they tossed out Alex's with my seeing it. I was also very curious. I asked to see Rowan's. It is disgusting but also very cool. Smaller than I thought it would be, too!

I found out the other day at an ICAN meeting that there is a lady here who dehydrates the placenta to put inside capsules that you take like medicine until it runs out and it helps with PPD and gives a BF'd baby extra nutrients. She also does keepsake artwork with the umbilical cord. I considered it but due to a health issue (thyroid) I wouldn't be a good candidate. It would screw with my levels bc the placenta would have absorbed some thyroid meds. Could make me be double dosing. Otherwise I think it's a splendid idea.

I might just have to ask to see mine because it will be the last chance I have and now I'm curious.
