Hi. My name is Shawna. We were diagnosed with IUGR at about 22 weeks - I'm now just over 27 weeks. Ours, so far, is unexplained. Within the next couple weeks they will start doing stress tests and doppler ultrasounds.
Anyways, just wondering how accurate the ultrasound measurements are? At our 19 week gender ultrasound, our baby girl was measuring 2 weeks behind. Then at our 24.5 week ultrasound, she was an additional 4 days behind. At that same ultrasound, they estimated her weight to be just over a pound. Now, at our, almost, 27 weeks ultrasound, she's about a pound and a half - but hasn't fallen any further behind, for once. To which we were pretty excited about. =)
Also, have many of you made it to term with your wee babies? From what I've read, most don't make it as the baby just stop growing or it's decided that the baby would be better on the outside!?
We feel good that we've made it this far - but pray we make it til the end of March at least - which would put me at 36 weeks <-- Is that just wishful thinking? hehehe
Any info would be GREAT!! We've fought so hard just to get her in the first place; almost 3 years trying, 3 IUI's, 2 IVF's and $25,000 - and now we have to fight IUGR to top it off - when it rains, it pours hehehe
