Update on growth scans/small baby

I had my appt/ultrasound with the high risk dr. today and the good thing is they can't find anything wrong with the baby or the placenta or cord. He has a good heartrate and he's active and she said the blood flow through the cord appears to be within the normal range.

Unfortunately he just isn't growing and they only measured him as being in the 3rd percentile. He was measured in the 5th percentile by my regular OB last Thurday, but the dr wasn't concerned and said it's probably just margin of error differences that naturally occur. I have to go back next week for another ultrasound and if he has not grown any, he will have to come out. I'll be 36 weeks. If he continues to grow at least a little, they will leave him in until 38-39 weeks. Being that he is only measuring around 4 lbs, I would love for him to gain weight and stay in longer. I'm really scared of having a baby this small. Please keep sending good vibes that he has grown some by next week! Thanks!

  • sending good thoughts!!! Our DD2 was 4 lbs when we brought her home and it was definitely intimidating, especially since our first DD was over 9 lbs. Wishing you the best of luck!
