Updates on me and baby.!!!!! Cj Larck 19 kids; Mansfield, Ohio 35 posts5th Feb '13
Just thought I would let yall know that appointment at OSU today went ok. The baby grew a tiny bit. It still weighs 6 oz but it went from weighing 150 grams to 180 which is good. They said my placenta is badd. Its not working right. Its not getting enough nutrition and stuff to the baby. Right now its still tough and go. The baby needs to weigh atleast 16oz or 1 pound before they will even consider giving me any kind of steriod. So the baby needs to gain 273 more grams. Hopefully by my 28th week it has cuz then if so they will admit me to hospital and deliver me then. Cuz then it will have a better chance of survival out side the womb. Right now it has no chance. But the is a fighter. Its trying to get better. Soooo Im ganna keep drinking my ensure drinks and hope the baby gains what it needs. Keeping my head up and praying for the best

My son had IUGR and was not gaining weight or growing like he should when he reached 28 weeks. He was born at 36 weeks at 4 lbs 15 ounces.
Op, keep taking care of yourself and doing what you need to do. I'm hoping for the best for you and little one! There's always hope. :)
