I apologize of there is already a thread about this, but IUGR stories always fascinate me!

Please share yours!
Were you induced or emergency CS?
At what gestation was your LO born?
How much did s/he weigh?
At what gestation was it noticed and monitored?
How are they doing now? Weight/age?


I'll come back and share my (mild) story in a bit!

Were you induced? I was, with pitocin, but I had no pain meds :)
At what gestation was your LO born? One day shy of 38 weeks
How much did s/he weigh? Only 4 pounds 14 ounces
At what gestation was it noticed and monitored? About 34 weeks, he stopped growing at about 32 weeks
How are they doing now? Weight/age? He's doing great! He's a very healthy and active almost 5 year old! I believe he's about 40 pounds, and 38" tall.

Not mine but my friend had her first that was IUGR.  Scheduled induction 3 weeks early as baby not growing or gaining weight and knew about a heart condition, vaginal birth, baby 5 plus pounds and beautiful.  She was in NICU for 12 days with heart condition monitored and feeding tube.  Once she gained some weight and would suck a bottle she was discharged.  She had 2 surgeries under the age of 1.  She is 3 yrs old now and she is perfect.  She is a little small but still around the 10th percentile so no worries.  We adore her.

 Were you induced or emergency CS? induction which led to c-section due to failure to progress
At what gestation was your LO born? 37 1/2 weeks
How much did s/he weigh? 4lbs 13 oz
At what gestation was it noticed and monitored? not sure when they exactly noticed it, around 32 or 33 weeks is when they became somewhat concerned. Had an u/s at 34 weeks and was still measuring small fundal height, had another u/s at 37 1/2 weeks and baby had not grown well in that 3 1/2 weeks so induction was ordered, I didnt even get to leave the hospital after the u/s, they told me I was having a baby that weekend and i said no, hes not due for 3 more weeks  
How are they doing now? Weight/age? 4 1/2 yrs old, 30lbs, 39 inches, still only in the 5th percentile, hes just a small one for his age still, but pretty healthy.
