Re: Calcification of Placenta at 32 weeks?

I don't think that placentas become entirely calcified, it is more like calcification SPOTS. Usually it occurs with women with really poor nutrition, smokers and when overdue most commonly. I don't think you can tell that from palpating, and they would probably see it on the ultrasound.
