Had the same issue, last year lang. nung 20+ weeks ako, nagstart ng mag slow down ang growth ni baby. i've been gaining weight pero si baby hindi
i've been eating white eggs kasi mataas sa protein yun, been lying on my left side kasi mas maganda ang flow ng blood pag sa left side ka, wala pa rin. 30+ weeks ako, lumalaki yung difference, started 2 wks behind, then 3 weeks, umabot pa ng 1 month! had CAS twice (4 weeks ata yung pagitan) pero wala naman makitang problema, heartbeat was good, my AF was good level, malikot din siya, maliit lang talaga si baby
malaki pala ang head niya compared sa body niya pero hindi naman daw hydrocephalus. At 35wks ata yun, sinabihan na ko ni OB na pag maliit pa rin si baby, i-induce niya ko on my 38th week. I even had one week sick leave on my 37th week (working kasi ako) pero wala pa rin. On Aug 28, 2012 (38th week), decided ng i-induce ako kc nga di na lumalaki si baby, one month behind na ata siya dito. So same day, na-admit na ko at 5pm and started the procedure ng labour induction. On Aug 29, 2012 at 6:12am, I gave birth via NSD. As soon as she came out, ang lakas na ng iyak niya and sabi nila very active, super liit nga lang. Her birth weight was 1.93kg (4.2lbs) only. Dinala na siya sa NICU straight. She was in the incubator but only for a while. She stayed in the hospital for some series of test. Meron silang white board sa NICU and nakalagay sa kanya was IUGR (Intrauterine Growth Restriction) baby siya. Daming tests ang ginawa sa kanya coz they want to know kung bakit di siya lumalaki and baka daw may infection siya. Thankfully, wala nakitang major issues. Sept 3 na namin siya inuwi, this is the first day she gained weight.
She's 5 months, 1 week and 4 days today. She's still very small for her age, only weighs 4.8kg, but the pedia assured that her developments are good.
She's my second baby and I never had the same issues with my first born so up to now it worries me na ang liit liit niya
But as long as she's healthy, active and normal, grateful ako doon. Exclusive breastmilk rin lang ang tine-take niya so ang lakas ng immune system niya. Di siya basta basta nagkakasakit. I'm still praying na wala talagang makitang complications as she gets older.
If you will google IUGR, mapaparanoid ka lalo. So try not to think about it. Just stay happy, eat healthy foods, lie on your left side and pray. Alam ko mahirap gawin na wag mag-isip, kasi ako, ilang beses kong iniyakan yan lalo na nung nagbasa ako ng IUGR when i was pregnant. Basta stay positive and follow OB's instructions
