Default Kinda long update on us

Hey ladies, sorry I have been MIA for a while. I have been super busy. I am practically living at the Dr.'s office now. I had a routine u/s done at the office because my belly was measuring small. I have measured small with each of my pregnancies so I didn't expect anything to be abnormal. Baby measured abnormally small though, so I was sent to a high risk doctor to determine if baby had IUGR (growth restriction). They determined that at this point things looked OK but baby's abdominal measurement was still smaller than they would like to see, so they diagnosed her as SGA(small for gestational age) and scheduled a follow-up u/s for the 30th of this month. My reg OB also decided to do NST's once a week because of this. I made it to exactly 2 of those NST appt's and yesterday at my last one, my Dr. didn't like how baby's heart was acting. She would have extremely long periods of elevated HR but no movement. So, now I am scheduled for weekly BPP u/s and twice weekly NST for the rest of my PG. I go in every Monday and Thursday now! I never had extra monitoring with my other babies so this is completely new to me. I almost feel like I should just camp out at the Dr. office lol.

I felt the same way as I had the weekly and twice weekly BPP. At least they are keeping a close eye on baby. Keep us updated when you can!

At least they are keeping an eye on the baby. I'm the same way. I have been high risk with both pregnancies and am in the doc's office 2 times a week for U/S and NST. At least we get to see our little ones on the screen every week. Hang in there.
