    well looks like my baby has IUGR :( the dr said its nothing to worry about at the moment but i was hoping for a averaged size baby im worrying if baby is too small i will drop him/her or hurt her/him i dunno maybe im just worrying about nothing. im hoping they turn around and say theyve got my dates wrong and bubs weight is perfectly normal lol!

    bloody typical i was only saying yeterday about my bump being smaller :(

    i have to have a scan every 3/4 weeks until bub gets here now to check the baby. for now they have told me to stick to a good diet plan and put MORE weight on!!!

    has anyone else been told there baby has IUGR?

    Love amy x

    Crikey - I haven't heard of it - what's IUGR?

    Hope everything's OK - when's your next scan then?

    Hi my son had inter-uterine growth ******ation. I had to have an elective emergency c section when i was 32+ weeks, as he was receiving hardly any nutrients and stuff from me so it was best to get him out.
    He weighed 4lb 2oz and apart from needing a ventilator for few days and to put weight on was fine !!

    He is now nearly 13 years old :D

    Try not to worry im sure everything will be ok x

    32 weeks??? bloody hell :( my next appointment is in a few weeks so hopefully i will get told alot more information, i cant even imagine the size of a 4lb baby, im pretty scared now

    :( should i be preparing myself for bub sooner than expected?

    want to call up my midwife but i feel like i have been on at her loads just lately and dont want to seem a pain. thanks for your replies, i will let you know what they say anyway. amy x

    Try not to worry if they're leaving you a few weeks things must be ok for now. Don't worry about bothering your midwife - that's what she's paid for and what she chose her profession for. I'm sure she'd rather you called her than you worrying yourself about things.
