We’ve been having regular scans since they found our baby’s femur was short at 20 weeks. Since then we’ve had tests for genetic/chromosomal issues which have all come back clear. They put issues with growth down to placental insufficiency (overall weight once dropped to 0.6th centile) and predicted they’d need to deliver the baby by 30 weeks. The past couple of scans were more positive with overall weight estimated at 12th centile and femur growing although still small.
The last scan found that the femur remains small and they estimated that overall weight has dropped to 2.5th centile, which is closer to estimations from 20 weeks. This came as a bit of a blow after the more positive scans previously.
They measure bloodflow every week and this has stayed ok so they seemed less convinced there is a problem with the placenta, which makes me worried about the short femur and small overall weight being linked to something underlying.
We had IVF to get pregnant and had a very rocky first 12 weeks so it feels as though there’s been something to worry about for a really long time and every so often it all feels quite overwhelming.
If anybody has had a similar experience and can offer any advice I’d be really grateful.
Thanks for any help 😃 x
