Hope2007 - January 18

I am due Feb 27th. My baby hasn't grown in 14 weeks or so. He has fluid around is heart and reversed doplar flow., very low amniotic fluid and a possible heart defect....not to mention he is so small. My doctors have told me I am going to lose him any day (since I was 20 weeks!). He is still here. We have decided to induce at 37 weeks. Has anyone ever heard of a baby survivng at this size and for this long?

I actually just watched a doc_mentry called "Little man" about a really premature baby born at 25 weeks and weighed 1 1/2 ibs. Other than that im not sure about the other stuff it sounds really serious and I pray things work out for you.

Hi hope 2007, you must be going through a very unrestful time, but I am very happy to hear that you both have held on so long. When is your induction date? Is that 3 weeks from now? I do not have any experience with IUGR to the extent you are experiencing. Has he not grown at all since 20 weeks? Did they do measurements at 20 weeks and at 34? Was their any growth, or how small did he measure at 20? I hope you are well and you can post soon. XX

My cousin is almost 28 years old he was born premature and weigh just about a pound.... And that was 28 years ago... the big thing is not to give up hope....
