Molar Pregnancy - So this pregnancy was a partial molar pregnancy, or a partial hydatidiform molar pregnancy. There are two types of molar pregnancies: complete moles, and partial moles. In the complete mole, there is no genetic information in the egg, and the sperm fertilizes it and makes a copy of its own genetic material, so there are 46 chromosomes, but they are all from Mr. Swimmer. That type of pregnancy develops into a massive placenta that looks like a snowstorm on an ultrasound…
A molar pregnancy — also known as hydatidiform mole — is a noncancerous (benign) tumor that develops in the uterus. A molar pregnancy starts when an egg is fertilized, but instead of a normal, viable pregnancy resulting, the placenta develops into an abnormal mass of cysts.
