  • I had this with my daughter. She took a while to grow and I had to go for a sono every 2weeks to get her growth checked. It was scary at the time because we were told she might be premature and need to go in the nicu because the measurements always came back really small. I did go into labor 2 months premature but it was stopped because I got to my doctor and he gave me an IV to stop the labor. Good news I got to see my baby all the time and her much she changed and have lots sonogram pictures of her. Best news she was a week late and weighted 7lbs!

  • They didn't find out until birth, but my DD only had the single umbilical artery. She was 10lb 7oz and completely healthy! Never understood why they didn't notice earlier though. Praying for you and your baby.
