In the last month I have been to hospital so many times I could drive there in my sleep. Update in breif First at 20 week scan LO had dilated kidneys and calcification of the heart at 32 weeks this had corrected itself. Then we moved house and hospital started antenatal classes. And at 35 weeks he had 2 days of limited movement so I had to go into the hospital day clinic for monitoring twice in 24hrs, typically he decided as soon as I was straped up to the machine to give the equipment a huge kick - they decided my fundal height was measuring a bit small, and wanted to recheck the kidney and heart scans done in my last hospital. At my growth scan they plotted his head and body measurments on a graph and while his head has developed at a stead rate, his body development has slowed. Which makes them worry the placenta isn't working correctly. So we saw a consultant, who advised for 2 weeks of bio-metic monitoring and I see him again on Halloween - if no better he said they would "start me off" In the meantime my GP's MW decided I might be breach! But at the biometric scan he was still head down (thank god). However his fluid is measuring quite low and he is looking like being a small baby (proper growth scan on thursday). And then on friday they will decide if they want to induce early. So I have bio-metric scanning again on Monday, and Thursday with a growth scan and then consultant on friday. And who says there is nothing to do on maternity leave? I'm also thankful they've taken such an interest in looking after me and making sure they've done every test they can and I appreciate the oppertunity to get to see him on these scan but I'd trade it for having a more 'normal' pregnancy and knowing he was healthy. And of course I know some ladies here will have been through a lot more trumatic events in their pregnancy. Phew! Well I feel better for sharing Has anyone had a similar experience? And are the rumours true does induction leave to a longer and more painful labour?
