Wait a minute, your appendix is most certainly a "disposable" organ. That's why its called a vestigial organ!

I thought the same thing about the gall bladder and stuff, and answered according to that. It wasn't until I'd already answered that I realized the placenta is the only one the body disposes of itself.I'm shocked I got the rest right, though. The only one I was sure on was previa.

4/5 - I also thought about the appendix and gallbladder as not necessarily being needed (since I'm currently living without my gallbladder!!!). I also had placenta previa during both my pregnancies but luckily they resolved themselves prior to delivery!

4/5, I thought you could call the appendix "disposable" since you don't need it.
