And baby is still inside!!

She definately has IUGR, but it is of the type that is better to stay in and just watch carefully. She is not showing any signs of stress at all, she scored 8/8 on the last BPP.

I get to go back monday for another BPP and NST. And then again a few days later. As long as she isn't showing any stress then she gets to stay put until 37 weeks.

They have no idea what is causing it, more than likely is is something genetic with the baby not being able to use the nutrients that she is getting.

She is tiny, and probably still sill be in 3 weeks, but strong.

I am happy to be home with my boys.

It was really stressful for everyone for me to be in there and some of my family was frustrating.


thanks for all thoughts!!



Oh and I forgot to add the best news ;) Dh and I get to go see HP tonight!!!! My friend is coming over after we put the boys to bed (so it is less stress for them to be left again) and we are seeing the 9 pm showing!
