    Default Weight loss and bub measuring small concern

    Hi ladies,
    Seeking some help here. I am currently 32 weeks day 7 today. I had my 32 week scan last week an found that bub is measuring 2 weeks behind and now I find myself losing 1 kg in the last 3 days . This is the time when my weight should actually increase isn't it? This is my first pregnancy through ivf after a long struggle. I am really worried. Any insights from anyone? will my weight loss harm my baby ?

    I wouldn't think you losing 1 kg would harm your baby as long as you are eating a healthy balanced diet it should be fine. If you are really concerned though, have a chat to Ob to make sure everything is ok.

    Hi BP, a few thoughts...
    Maternal weight loss during pregnancy is usually fine if you still stay in a healthy weight range and are still eating and drinking well to nourish bub.
    Bub having a single measurement of being small is not usually an issue. The issue is bubs growth abnormally slowing over a number of measures, eg was measuring 3 weeks ahead, then 1 week behind , then 3 weeks behind etc or being on 90th percentile and dropping down to 20th etc. Its worth getting a repeat scan in 2-3 weeks to recheck size to exclude IUGR. Do you happen to know your PAPP-A score from your 12 week bloods? A low score can place you at slightly higher risk of IUGR.
    Hope that helps x

    Happy mum and Belfast thank you for the quick replies. I am trying to get in touch with my ob to check about this. I have an appointment next week and a scan the week after scheduled to check on the growth again. bel I don't remember my papp-a level but my ob had said that everything was fine at that time. even now last week she told me nothing much to worry and to sleep on my left.
