Hi im 29 weeks pregnant with my fourth and after three relatively straightforward pregnancies this was has been a nightmare from the start. Most recent development is concern for baby's size .. currently just about 10th centile on growth charts and we have had growth scans at 20 weeks, 24 weeks, 28 weeks, got another one on tuesday specifically to measure fluid level and then another growth scan a week later. Anyway my normal weight gain for this stage in pregnancy is about 1 1/2 stone. So far in this one ive put on 13 pounds but when i weighed myself this morning ive lost one pound. Now i wouldnt usually be bothered by such a small weight loss but with everything else do you think i need to be concerned? Asking this question in large families section in case anyone else has experienced this with fourth or subsequent pregnancy?
hi im fairly sure that they did check blood flow to placenta at one of the scans i already have but i will mention at my tuesday scan. My blood pressure is fine .. luckily it is one of those things ive never had any problems with. Have not had my fundal height done as first time mw would do it would be 28 weeks and im presuming they didnt measure at the hospital on tues as they were relying on the scan measurements, but again i will check next tuesday.
Not had bad morning sickness as im not really a vomitting sort of person. But from day 1 (or about 5 days before missed period) i have felt terrible .. they diagnosed a dermoird cyst on my right ovary at EPU, all hormonal symptons much much worse then i have experienced before as has the tiredness and the worry.
Thing is i just dont know if im being a bit silly getting worked up over a pound weight loss .. because when i write it down it does sound silly but when baby is already showing as small will a pound off make a difference?
