I am 33w4d pregnant (with my third child) and I have an appointment scheduled with a maternal and fetal medicine specialist concerning the recent findings on a couple of ultrasounds. My midwife originally sent me because she was having a hard time feeling the baby on exam and thought I had a lot of fluid. I was also measuring a few weeks ahead. U/S came back as mostly normal with the exception of fluid filled loops in the baby's bowel. My fluid was 18 and change. That was at 31 weeks and the baby measured at almost 34 weeks.
Next exam he was all over the place and it was hard to hear his heart beat (maybe from the fluid). Went back for another ultrasound to look again last week and my fluid is now over 25 and he still has fluid in bowels and now in his stomach. His abdomen dated over two weeks ahead of his head circumference and the baby measured over 35 weeks.
Now the top of my left leg into my knee is completely numb and I have a lot of pain in my calf...not a cramp, but more like pain when I walk or move my leg.
My appointment is in 5 days but I am in hyper-anxiety mode and worried that my son has an obstruction or congental problem. I also am worried this will risk me out of a birth center birth and into a c-section.
Anyone have any thoughts or experience with this or idea of what might be happening? I am so stressed...
