Today I went in for my high risk ultrasound to check on baby growth. Baby went from 42% (July 16) -18% (aug 21) her weight is 5 pounds 10 oz right now. They figured shes a bit chunkier because of my GD. IDK. my fluid levels are a 4. MFM ultrasound technician said he is not worried because we have an induction date set altho he would like to see if we can get her out at term. So I said I will discuss that at my final ob appointment. Well I get home and I get situated a few minutes and greeted by a great big mess and stuff. I sit down to see my cell phone ringing, Its my OB The last time he personally called was in March to tell me to get an CVS or abortion since baby was showing signs of issues. Well I asked why he was calling. He said I need you to go to the birthing unit on Friday when I am there, call me befor you leave (gives me his personal cell) and you will meet up with a team to discuss whats best for the baby. I will also tell you this that baby will be in the NICU following birth because of the results of the ultrasound. So panick has set in and now I am scared. I need prayers. I know babies with downs do well, and her weight is so well. Im just so scared. She also has AVSD to. I will update on Friday with what I know. Im just scared, again

It seems kind of cruel to call like that only to tell you that you have to wait all week to even find out what's going on. I think he should have explained the issue over the phone so that you could have time to research and digest it before meeting with a team to discuss what the next move should be...You can call the office back and explain that whatever this is that's lingering is causing you a tremendous amount of anxiety, and since being placed on a Xanax drip isn't an option, maybe it would be best that they clue you in a little bit beforehand.

You and Alyssa are in my thoughts. Please update us as you can.

That would drive me nuts not having the details of why she would be in the NICU, etc. What a worry for you. I'm sorry you're going through this and I hope you can find peace through all of it.

Wow. Can't believe he couldn't find time to discuss before Friday and is making it so criptic.

You have been so strong until now. Keep it up!
Sending good thoughts your way

I'm with the others. I can't believe he just left you hanging like that and you have to wait all week to find out what is going on! You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I'm hoping for a better explanation for you on Friday!

You are in my thoughts and prayers, I can't believe how your doc handled that. Seems like he did it in the most stressful way possible. *hugs*

How scary to not get all the information. It seem really weird that you don't know what is going on. Also if your fluid level is that low they usually induce you or at least monitor you at the hospital. I was induced at 39 weeks since my fluid level was also a 4.
