I am 24 weeks pregnant and have had a sonogram at every apt cause they said my baby wasn't growing very well. At my apt today they said that I have to go back in 3 weeks for a sono and if she is still small, they want to see me every week if they don't just keep me in the hospital till I have her. What exactly would they be able to do for a baby that isn't growing?? This is my 4th and I have never had a small baby.Answer Question

Have they given you a reason for the lack of growth? Is the placenta a normal size? are there blood clots in the placenta? Does your umbilical cord have 2 or 3 vessels (3 is normal)? Do you have enough amniotic fluid? I ask these questions because my first was very small due to well . . all of the above. She was induced at about 36 weeks and was born at 2lb 13 oz. She is doing great today and you wouldn't be able to tell she was so tiny at birth. I know this doesn't really help but just know you aren't alone and sometimes the best things come in small packages.
