Hello ladies. I'm looking for other moms who had experience with IUGR.
DS's growth scans and my fundal height measurements were normal until week 32. Things went quickly downhill from there. He was estimated as 4lbs1oz at 35 weeks and 4lbs 4oz at 37 weeks when I delivered based on my doctor's recommendation. DS actually only weighed 3lbs 7.8oz at birth. Thankfully, he didn't have any respiratory problems or issues with sugar, temp, or jaundice. He was perfect, just small.
I had weekly NSTs from 32 weeks to delivery and biweekly biophysical profiles from 35 weeks to delivery. All of these tests always came back normal. After delivery, my OB had my placenta sent to pathology to be tested. That came back normal as well.
Were you ever given a reason for your IUGR? What are the chances of it happening again? My OB wants to do additional testing on me three months post partum. Did any of you have this done? I think it's bloodwork to see if I'm a carrier for something.
