My best mate is expecint her first baby a week after me!! (its due early October). However, she has been having regular scans for the past week, every other day, and has had the sterioid injections for her babys lungs. She is 32 weeks saturday.
She has been told the babys stomach is small for the dates, and is about the measurements of a 26week baby. She is obviously very concerned. She has to see the consultant on tuesday, who will advise if the baby should be born, or to wait another week etc.
Is there any risk to the baby if he is born now? We know it will be in special care etc.
