Today I got a call from one of my close cousins and she was dx'd with IUGR. She is due the 27th of Nov but the last ultrasound (she has had 6 of them because of a subchronical hemmiage sp) showed a due date of Dec 8th. His head is measuring almost 2 weeks behind.

I am looking for anyone else who had this and any information on it. So please if you can help, post! Thank you.

My little guy was IUGR but completely healthy. I measured 32cm at 37 weeks for fundal height and was sent for a biophysical profile. I had that at 38 weeks and my baby boy measured at 33 weeks 6 days and approximately 4lbs 15oz. His head measured at 31 weeks. Had my doctor app't the next day and was sent for an induction. He was born weighing 5lbs 1.6oz. Not too too tiny, but he was definitely small for his gestational age. He didn't need any time in special care nursery or NICU, but they did prick his foot to test his blood sugar levels every 3 hours. They kept an eye on his feedings and his weight and was discharged with me 2 days later. He's a healthy little guy, just a bit small (following the 3rd% curve). Good luck to her.

I don't have experience but a lady I knew had her son early because of IUGR. He weighed just over 4lbs. He was small but healthy and didn't need any extra hospital stay. Hopefully there won't be any problems and your cousin will just have a "little" baby.

My son was diagnosed with IUGR at just shy of 37 weeks. The peri thought the problems probably surfaced around 32 weeks. He was small for his gestational age (5lbs 1oz) but fairly healthy. He did require a 10 day NICU stay.

From what I've read, the earlier IUGR appears, the more potential there is for damage. When it appears later on in pregnancy generally only the weight of the baby is affected, because that's pretty much all that is happening at stage. Earlier on brain development may be affected, but that also depends on the cause of IUGR. My son's was due to placental degradation and restricted blood flow.

There are many, many causes for IUGR and the results will vary with each cause.

I read the same thing. Early, bad later ok some what.

We all don't grow at the same pace.

None of my children ever had IUGR

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I was 28 weeks pregnant when they diagnosed IUGR. His chest measured 4-6 weeks behind his head. He was born 2 days late, and weighed 6 lbs 3 ozs. No NICU, or extended stay for him. They think it was caused because of his umbilical arteries being 90% blocked. I was in the hospital for a month on bedrest, and sent home on bedrest for the next 2 months. He has no health problems at the present time.

She had another 4D ultrasound today. Things seem to be looking up a little. He is 1 pound 7 ozs and in the 32%. They are going to keep monitoring his growth but between Friday of last week and today he has gain'd 5 ozs.

Thank you all of posting your stories. Glad all the bubs are good and healthy.
