Another Update on me (long, of course) — The Bump
Pregnant after a Loss

Another Update on me (long, of course)

I was supposed to have my growth scan on Monday, but DH's great uncle died and I figured it would conflict with the services, so I moved it to today. 

LO still has some swelling in her genital region, so we have no further answers to that.  That has become a moot point to say the least.

3 weeks ago, she was measuring in the 16th percentile.  Now, she's under the 10th and weighs 4lbs4oz.  She "should" weigh 5 lbs.  All of the blood flow and oxygen through my placenta looks perfect, so MFM said he doesn't want to call this IUGR.  He said it's entirely possible that I just have small babies. 

In addition to my weekly non-stress tests, I will start going back to MFM every Monday and Friday to monitor my placenta.  They will measure her again at 37 weeks (June 14th) and make a call at that point as to whether or not to induce me.  I am now on modified bedrest too. 

It has definitely been a whirlwind of a day.  If you could spare any T&Ps or if you have positive experiences with this, I would appreciate it very much!

Re: Another Update on me (long, of course)

  • No experience here. I just wanted to offer some hugs! I hope your modified bed rest helps LO grow more! Huge hugs!!

    Hugs Kiki!! Hope the genitalia swelling resolves soon and that all the growth tests come back ok! My first 2 babies were always measuring 2 weeks behind and close to IUGR status but thankfully both were just small babies. xoxo

    Sending lots of love and hugs. I'm sorry that you are in this stressful situation. 


  • I'm so sorry you're going through this. I can't speak to the swelling in the genital area, but I can relate to the size issue. You are not alone.
    Our baby is also measuring in the 16th percentile. Head Femur are normal, but abdomen is measuring very small bringing the overall percentile down.
    I have growth scans every three weeks. Next at 36 and a half weeks on June 17th. But I have weekly NSTs and OB appts until we deliver. They also check my levels which seem perfect and flow from placenta which was normal last scan.
    So I know EXACTLY what you're going through, hang in there...if you need some reassurance, just page me. We can commiserate together. Hugs.

    Maybe we just are meant to have small babies.  I guess someone has to be at this end of the bell curve!  (hugs)
