I measured at the bottom of the normal range with DD for awhile, then fell of the charts. They were able to do an ultrasound right then and there though so I didn't really have time to worry. I never had a big drop off like this, then the waiting, ugh. My friend is a CNM and she said fundal height is really inaccurate and not to worry, so it looks like everyone is in agreement that it's probably nothing!

Re: IUGR mamas?

My 2nd dd had extreme iugr. Diagnosed at our 18 week scan. They thought she wouldn't even makes it to 24 weeks and they wanted us to abort her. She did continue to grow but very slowly. My water broke at 28 weeks. She was Born at 1 pound 7 ounces and spent 90 days in the NICU. She just turned 7 and is super healthy!

Re: IUGR mamas?

My DS1 was diagnosed with IUGR at 20 weeks. He was 4lbs 10 oz at birth, and I was induced at 37 weeks because he wasn't growing like they wanted, which he didn't tolerate well (as many IUGR babies do not), so I had a csection. So far the fact that your LO's growth is symmetrical is a good sign she just might be a small baby. They will do another ultrasound in a few weeks and that should be more accurate in determining an actual diagnosis. I think your plan sounds great, and hope the best for you and your little babe. Should they confirm IUGR and you have any questions, please feel free to message me

Old thread... But wondering what kind of weekly growth the doctors were looking for in deciding whether to induce early? My DD grew 7 oz in a month, and it sounds like 15 to 30 oz would be more typical at her age. She is 35 weeks. They are going to to do either a NST or BPP every week. They haven't said anything about when they're thinking of delivering. From what I've read, it sounds like about 37 weeks is a time when it becomes better for them out than in. I'm worried about going past 37 weeks, can I ask for an earlier delivery? Would this be something to get a second opinion for?

With my ds, they were looking for any growth in a week until he hit 38 weeks. He had very small growth gains but I wasn't induced until 38.5 weeks, and then because my placenta was severely calcified and there were low amniotic fluid levels.
