I was just wondering if anyone could give me any advice, tell me what they think is the right thing to do, share stories, anything; as I'm pretty confused right now...
Basically I'm 21 years old, pregnant with my 3rd child. She is extremely tiny, measuring 3-4 weeks behind. The doctors cannot find a reason for it. I am constantly being monitored, daily ctg, twice a week visits with a professor, weekly ultrasounds. Besides being below 1 percentile in weight and growth for her gestation (currently 27 weeks), her traces have been perfect, ultrasounds are showing growth consistently even though she isn't as big as she should be. I know my dates are correct, as this was a planned pregnancy, tracked periods and early scans show around the same due date. This is my second iugr baby, my son is now almost 3 and he's fine. Born 2.4kg at 38
Anyway the professor has told me he would like me to go for an amnio next Thursday. I'm not sure whether to agree or not, I don't know what to think. He didn't even explain the risks involved. They already checked for Downs syndrome early on and there's no way she has it. They are looking for other chromosome abnormalities. My question is, is it safe? Anyone have any stories to share? Do you believe its a good thing to get it done? I'm only 21 and I have 2 other healthy children. I just don't know !
