    Default The Fertility Centre Springwood #5

    Ngaiz I hope next scan is a bit more on track. I dont think 3 weeks behind is much at all I hate that they lump babies in a one size fits all category plus there measurements are stressful when I had late preg scan with mason they told me he had a big head small arms and was short I was convinced I was going to give birth to a t-rex

    Bahaha thats hilarious. I'm only concerned because of the other abnormalities associated with a single artery and that he was on track at 19weeks. He does appear anatomically well though so I just have to have faith that all will be well.

    What is single artery?
    I think the cause unecessary stress with the size. I had a friend who was told her baby was too small and they induced her at 37 weeks bub came out 6lb6. Pretty normal size if you ask me. Another friend was told at 35 weekd her baby was measuring almost 11lb took bub out 2 weeks later and she was 9lb little bit off with their estimates

    It's when there is only one umbilical artery instead of two so essentially the bub is nutrient deprived. If this wasn't the case and he was just small I wouldn't be concerned (because I'm small), I'm just worried about his overall health. It is also associated with congenital and chromosome abnormalities and trisomy which was only explained to me at 25w. At that stage I didn't see the point in NIPT because I knew I was already too much in love to terminate regardless. Because he appears to be anatomically OK the risk trisomy risk is very low but none of them can be excluded.

    I understand your concerns x
    What is NIPT? Is that the nuchal fold test. Im booked in for it on 18 april. I figure if the tests are available I should utilise them

    Its a bt that take your blood and isolates the fetal blood and tests for trisomy. Its done around 10w and used in conjunction with the NT scan and bt. It can also test for other chromosome abnormalities if you have a genetic disorder you know to look for and gender.
