I'm new here, and due in August. I had an ultrasound done and they are concerned that my baby is small. So they are sending me for a level 2 ultrasound. He is measuring 2-3 weeks behind in weight so I may have IUGR? Does anyone else have this problem and if so and advice would be appreciated as I am freaking out.
I personally have not had a baby born with IUGR, but I know some of the nicu mom's have. I would try to post in the NICU forum, and see what they say. Also do some research on the internet. Try not to worry it's still early! Good luck and let us know what happens!
I had IUGR with my son who was born in Oct. 2005. His chest measured 4-5 weeks behind his head measurements. He was born healthy and 2 days late. He weighed 6 lbs 3 ozs. I had complications with his umbilical arteries as well.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask. I know I was pretty frightened with some of the info I found.
I was induced at 36 with DS due to IUGR. There are so many different causes for IUGR (mine was because the placenta started breaking down and wasn't delivering enough nutrition) that it's hard to just research it on the internet. DS was on the small side and had to be in the NICU for 10 days, but he's now a perfectly happy and healthy four year-old.
See the cute, HEALTHY, baby girl in my siggy? She is an IUGR baby. Mine was caused by Lupus, I had to be induced at 36 weeks. Ella was 5 pounds even, and spent a week in the NICU for some feeding issues, but she absolutely fine and normal now.
Feel free to ask me anything, or PM me if you want to talk.
Due to u/s and my fundus measuring low there was concern that my dd may have IUGR. According to one u/s her chest measurement was only in the 5%. But then later u/s showed that she was small, but not small enough to have IUGR. She was born 1 week early at 7 pounds and either 10 or 14 ounces (they weighed her on 2 different scales in the room). So she was a perfectly healthy size. They were very surprised.
Hoping that your next u/s shows that your baby doesn't have IUGR!!!! Are you scheduled for the u.s yet?
