Anyone had IUGR?


Hi ladies,

A growth scan today showed my little lady has a normally growing head but her body is small indicating she is not getting enough nutrients. I am having dopplers of the vessels in her brain done next week to check all is well.

Has anyone been through this? I may well end up with early delivery due to growth restriction. Hoping to hear some stories.

Thank you in advance

Hi

My DD had IUGR and I had an EMCS at 29+4, she weighed. 2lb 1oz. 11 week stay in NICU. She's still a little on the small side but all is well. They'll prob scan you more frequently to keep an eye on things. I know it's scary but the further on you get, the better. At this stage if they were to deliver you, it's mainly feeding and growing. Try stay strong

Thank you, lovely to hear a story of a healthy baby at the end. Fingers crossed I get as close to term as possible.

I had undiagnosed iugr. My son was born in January at 35w at 1.6kg or 3lb 10oz.

Its. Good that you've had it picked up so they can monitor you.

My son is doing well now generally. He is 6lb at 3w corrected and just starting to feel like a proper baby to me! He has some underlying health problems that may be as a result of the iugr. They are under investigation at the moment.

My daughter was iugr, but we didn't know until the day before we had her. I was in the hospital for preeclampsia and they did an ultrasound to check her position and how she was growing. She was 2 lbs 8 oz at 30 weeks +4 days. Being small hasn't seemed to effect her much. She is very feisty and strong. She likes to rip her feeding tube out and slap syringes out of the nurses hands. She also lifts her head up and moves around a lot for someone so little. Today she is 5 weeks actual, but 35 +4 gestation.

How did it work out for you? I am in the exact same boat, being closely watched with doppler and growth scans but terrified. Doc wants to get me to 34 weeks but realistically looking at next 1-3 weeks

My LG had iugr and born at 34 weeks at 3lb7oz. We didn't know about the iugr until 3 days before she was brought out via emcs. They were going to monitor and scan me every week but i had a parental abruption and she had to come out because of that. She was in scbu for 18 days and apart from silent reflux is doing well. She's just turned 13 months and is running around the house into everything. Try not to worry and hope its all goes ok for you
