Do you have IUGR? That's what it sounds like. Make sure your dr is really keeping an eye on your baby! Im surprised they haven't delivered yet. Good luck.

unfortunatly i am having the same issue. they thought i wasnt eating enough and the baby is sitting on nerves which is making me have nerve damage in my back and legs which means alot of physical therapy after the baby comes. they tell me the same things and i am completely agrivated. but i also know that if shes in me longer then she will be that much healthier when i do have her. dont fret about the weight of her because she could surprise you and gain alot in a week, be a healthy 6 lbs or even be a healthy 5lbs. i was 5lbs and perfectly healthy same with my sister and 2 of my sisters babies. thankfully your doctors are listening to your concerns and its really not a bad thing that they are constantly doing tests like that every week. some moms their doctors dont listen to and the baby either ends up really hurt or dieing in the end. Be patient I feel for you!!!! GOOD LUCK!!

 same to you. i have ms though thats why the therapy comes into play. if they induce you that could do more harm then good. in some cases it makes the labor process worse and blood pressure could rise really high and could have to get a c-section. which i just find super scary. good luck to you and keep us posted

good luck

i was induced with my last baby& aside from it hurting like a million times worse then natural labor everything went good...i REALLY wanted to go natural this time bcuz i dont want the epi & i cant afford a doula..im afraid if i get induced im gonna cave in & get the epi again!

 you should try looking up hyponobirthing. i did it with my first and everyone pressured me to get the epi. the only form of induction i did was the doc stripped my membranes which you could ask him to do before trying the medicine part of induction. anyway the hypnobirthing is a form of meditation and has lots of relaxation tips and such. it may work for you its worth a shot. i didnt even cry till the last few minutes of giving birth because i lost track with everyone talking and such. it relived alot of pain that i felt when i lost my focus but as soon as i got back on focus it helped alot. it doesnt fully get rid of the pain but it helped.
