Today DH and I are off to our first Specialist consult, after three ultrasounds have proven bub is lagging in growth.
We have three healthy children and had very easy pregnancies with them, yet the list we have in front of us right now is overwhelming: a rapidly growing uterine fibroid, suspected IUGR (20 days delayed), and it appears bub has a pericardial effusion, and bowel appears echogenic. Liquor volumes have decreased slightly.
At 39 years of age I didn't really expect an easy ride with number four, but all these details are making me dizzy!!
Has anyone else had similar reports on their U/S before??
