Been told today that baby is small and I've igur. I've a repeat scan in 2 weeks (when I'm 31 weeks) and consultant said if growth still not good they will consider getting baby out. Just looking for others experiences of this?
This pregnancy has been complicated to say the least!

So sorry to hear you have had such worries. I had iugr in my pregnancy, compounded by me having HELLP syndrome, and yes, they took DS out at 31 weeks. He was 0.4th centile for his gestation.
While the birth was not an easy time, I can say that 3yo DS had no ill effects whatsoever and is now 98th centile for height, 75th for weight, and despite being a summer born, is more than keeping up with the older ones at nursery smile
All the best for you and your little one. If they do have to come out, the prognosis at 31 weeks is really good, even for small babies.

Ah that's so reassuring to hear a positive story from it, been worrying as ironically having the scans as they thought baby would be big!
I've lost my plug, had positive ffn and had contractions stopped plus steroids so think baby just isn't happy in the womb!

Have you thought of asking for a visit to NICU just to see what it's like, in the eventuality that your lo is there for a little while? Just having an idea can help.
And don't forget to take care of yourself in the midst of all this. smile flowers

Oh icant - so sorry to hear about this next complication! Must be putting such a huge worry in your shoulders - no experience to add but didn't want to read and run without sending you a hug!

Dr I live in remote part of uk, they mentioned Bristol (3 hours away) nicu so been on the wwebsite but think the further along I reach the closer to home it will be (swansea\cardiff) so still a couple of hours away. I've had local scbu team speak to me last week after the contractions etc scare who were lovely but I didn't really take much in. Thank you I'll make sure I rest smile
cantbelieve thank you that's lovely of you. Was going to rant on the fb page but its all I seem to do and didn't want to be negative.
