Hi. I have a quick question. I'm currently 28 weeks pregnant and we were diagnosed with IUGR at about 22 weeks. At first they noticed our baby girl was 2 weeks behind at her 19 week ultrasound. Since then she has gone another 4 days further behind. Our last appointment however, she was no further behind and in fact, instead of being in the 8th percentile, she was then in the 9th.
We have symmetrical IUGR, but there doesn't seem to be any chromosomal issues or anything - as far as the Drs are concerned, our IUGR is unexplained. <-- Though they are gonna start doing doppler ultrasounds and NST's n stuff from here on out as well.
Has anyone been diagnosed IUGR, only for it to.... go away <-- I know there's no way she'll catch up in the size she lost, but what are the odds of her continuing to grow normally from here on out?
Also, it doesn't seem I can gain any weight - even though I'm eating. The month before last I gained 2 pounds. This last month, again, 2 pounds. And in the last 3 weeks - I think about a pound!? <-- My specialist isn't worried about my lack of weight gain yet - she said once I hit the 32 week mark that the weight will start piling on... I think I've only gained about 10 - 11 pounds so far!? Oh, and I certainly don't look 7 months pregnant - when people find out I'm pregnant, they say 'You're what? 3 - 4 months pregnant?' And are SHOCKED when I say 7 months! =)
Any advice, tips or stories would be wonderful - thanks everyone!! =)
