Thanks Precious. Good luck Scruffy!!!
nidhulaine - the slowing of growth seems to be common for us then. Up till 25wks my bub measuring ahead and then suddenly tanked to 3rd percentile since. Even if I carry bub to full term he'll be just over 2kgs(5lbs). Have they tested your thyroid?
i had my scan yesterday and whilst bub still stable, my blood pressure shot sky high for first time ever and I had to go straight to hospital again. I've been having heart palpitations in the last week after eating with extreme fatigue and nausea for hours after, do they've tested my blood for thyroid issue. They also hooked me up to heart monitor and asked if I was having chest pains as it was showing I was having a heart attack - even though I wasn't. My Dr Google seems to suggest it could be hyperthyroidism. Which could also explain why bub has IUGR. Waiting for test results and to be issued with a heart monitor to wear at home....gees!
so I would just push them for a thyroid test and every other test just to make sure you and bub are ok as you could need meds.
It just really sucks that all these experts don't test till pushed and we are diagnosing ourselves etc. if we can put together a list of Ivf Drs etc now who are open to us auto-immune ladies then that will help us all avoid the others.
