    I measured behind with DD as well but my obstetrician was happier to let it go second time around and put it down to me carrying small and having smaller sized bubs. No induction with her but she also came along at 39 weeks. She was 3.2kg, so a decent weight even though my belly was very small.
    My story is actually identical to teenies. I had scans every two weeks from 26 weeks, induced at 38.5. Bub was 2.8kg. I was freaking about dwarfism etc due to hc being 50th percentile but arms and legs being 1-5th percentile. When she came out she looked perfect, just tiny!

    My was picked up at the morph scan with scans from 22 weeks every week to monitor growth. I did have a late loss the year before due to placenta problems, so Ob wasn't going to take any risks with me.

    Morph scan was fine it was only the check up scan some people have at 32 weeks that found it. I was induced at 36+4 and was rushed for an emergency c section as I have an abruption behind the placenta bub is still in special care and is slowly learning how to suckle. Other wise him and I are healthy

    My morph was all good, I started to be monitored from 26 weeks as when I had my checkup my fundal height was measuring behind. Then on the formal scan at 28 weeks they started to notice measurements dropping off
    (In saying that, my sisters fundal height measured 'normal' even though she was huge when she stood - and she had a 4.98kg baby! so I don't put a lot into fundal height myself).

    Default IUGR Experiences

    Thanks ladies. My morph scan showed a head in the 50th percentile and the rest of the body in the 3rd. We were told this was almost certainly not iugr, but the autopsy result came back saying it was (he was born at 22 weeks). The fluid levels were fine and the growth issues were asymmetrical so they thought it was some awful chromosomal thing.

    OP, obviously that's way worse than yours. Hope that doesn't stress you out.

    Congrats Shelbyrose! Glad both you and bub are well. Hopefully he will be out of special care very soon xo
