    My daughter was an IUGR baby although I probably cant share too much info with you as I didnt know she was IUGR until well after she was born (in fact not until months after when I applied for her medical records, although I had suspected it)

    She was born at 34 weeks due to pre-eclampsia and was only 1.6kgs born (1645g). They tell me she had stopped growing completely due to the pre-eclampsia and my placenta was stuffed. I think depending on how serious it is sometimes you may get induced, other times they let it go and watch the baby closely. But I dont have any other info on that.

    For us it hasnt affected our daughter in the long term at all. She has always been on the lighter/smaller size and stayed under the 5th percentile in weight until after her 1st birthday, but she is now 2 and height wise she is slightly above average and weight around average so she has definately caught up. For us there were no delays to any of her milestones etc either.

    There is an IUGR support group on Facebook (if you are on there) if you want to pm me I can let you know the link if interested? You will be able to ask questions there of people that have gone through it all before, however just be aware that while some of the stories are like mine, some of the stories are not neccessarily as positive as mine.

    I hope you find someone to answer any questions and hopefully your ob can point you in the right direction as well xx

    It all comes down to how healthy the baby is, they will do a cgt to track the babies heartbeat and movements and if that is not reassuring then you will probably be looking at induction or c-section, otherwise they will monitor you closely and watch for any signs of trouble. My first was born at 31+5 weighing 1220grs, we didn't know that anything was wrong until that point and he was delivered the same day as the ultrasound as he was under stress. He was in hospital until he reached 2 kgs and we took him home after 6 1/2 weeks, he was on Cpap for a couple of days to help him breathe but no other health problems. He is 3 1/2 now and in the 97th percentile for height and the 50th for weight.

    Good luck.
