OK this might sound like a book but i'm extremely worried for my daughter who is expecting her first baby. By her dates she is due 16th Sept but on her 20wk scan they made her due date 23rd Sept. Which is not much of a problem being a weeks difference. But also it was picked up that baby has SUA (single utility artery) which basically means she has 2 vessel cord and not 3 vessel. The Sonographer said the baby would be small and she wanted my daughter seen by the midwives but when the sonographer rang them they said we are not interested just book her in for a 32wk growth scan! My daughter is now 28wks and 2wks ago she saw her midwife at 26wks and was measuring 22wks. The gap is getting bigger from her expected delivery date. So far she has been given 23rd, 26th and 29th september. Then yesterday I payed for her to have a 4d scan. The baby was measuring 25wks and weighed just over a1lb and below the 10th centile and he made the 5th October. The problem i'm worried about is when she goes for the 32wk growth scan that if the baby is well behind on dates, will they move them well back and not do anything else which will in theory make her so over due that it will cause real problems. Or hopefully they will see that baby is having problems growing because of only having 2 vessel cord that they might induce her 2 weeks early. What do you think they will do? it is such a worrying time and they don't seem to be bothered at all with her!
