Megans last growth scan was at 36+6 and they thought she weighed 4 1/2 - 5 lbs at the very very most they said. All of her measurements that day were measuring between 32-34 weeks. Her abdomen was measuring 32 weeks!
Well I went in that evening for inducing and she was born the next day at 37 weeks. She was 5 lbs 14 oz and nothing wrong with her at all. She is a tall and slender 2 year old now.
Hun I went through this recently massively up your protein intake with chicken fish eggs & shakes etc it really does work I started a thread on this as I have a baby with a heart condition & am monitored fortnightly for growth scans.
The thread is IUGR heart baby prayers needed
Please be strong & positive your LO will be fine xx
I've read the protein thing too, I'm trying to focus on having a protein rich diet as we've got a high chance of a preemie. 60g a day should be minimum protein for a non-pregnant person, I'm trying to have at least 120g as I've heard it's good for getting them to bulk up quickly! It's not going to hurt at any rate.
