    Why are you having these, sugar? Just wondering because my MW says I'm measuring small and if I'm still small this week she's sending me for a growth scan...

    ETA good luck!

    hey, i had this too. steroids and growth scans every 2 weeks. he was measuring small throughout then they decided to check results of blood tests, which hadnt been checked at all. they discovered i was anemic and put me on iron, he then shot up the growth chart! its a pain in the ass (literally!) but worth i for reassurance. hope all goes well

    for the other ladys that are asking steroids are given as a precaution to mature babies lungs incase of baby being prem. im now on 39th wk and no sign of baby! i hope they havent strengthen lungs so much that hes a screamer..!

    Good luck hon!

    Good luck to you too for tomorrow Serina. I have a growth scan on 1st June, but I think it's more so that they can decide when to give me the c-section, as he is measuring fine for dates.
