I don't understand . I was 35 when I concieved naturally and all was going on fine . I had no morning sickness swelling back ache or anything in my first trimester . I did have subchrionic haematoma which got dissolved in a week of my first trim.
Second trimester my BP was 140/90 and Dr gave me ecosporin . It got normal,to,110/80. All was fine . The last scan i had done was 20week scan the anamoly scan where all was fine with the baby . For the next ten weeks I had appointments every fifteen days .dr checked me and put me and nothing was wrong .except the fact that I always told every one how come I do not look pregnant ..i was 64 kgwhen i concieved and was 69when it was 6.5momths Dr said control your weight so did and when I went to her at the end of my seventh month ..there were less feral,movements .she checked with some machine . It was down hill from that very moment . We got scans done(last scan was done on 20 th weeksAnd this on 30th week)it was found imhad IUGR and baby weight was 780gms . When it should have been 1.5kgs..imwas admitted in th the hospital,and on the very next scan showed I had end diastolic flow ..we took another scan in the night and it showed reverse Doppler and imwas immediately operated and deliverd my baby boy .all this happend in a span of three days . I met other mothers at NiCU where my son was kept they all said they knew of their conditions well in advance ,even those who had same story as me .i was given steroid shots for baby's lung maturity ..even online I have read people with growth lag of 4-5 weeks got a at least 15 days.i didn't . I too had severe IUGrR growth lag.by a month and baby weight 780grams .but in two mo this of routine check,up,it was not detected . Only when it was too late . Placental,insufficiency they said. Has it happens to,any one else . I just wish if it was detected in time may be I could do something to increase the weight of my baby , he died after 18 days . And daily I think I have met moms who knew of their situation way in advance and got rest and could at least increase their baby's weight giving them more chance of survival . I did not .imjust got three days . What happened I do not know .i got all my Investigations done . All have come negative , I am absolutely fine . I don't know what happend . That a seemingly healthy pregnancy turned high risk without even giving any symptoms . No bleeding BP nothing . I was a picture of health.except when I went to,kitchen I sneezed a lot .besides that I was hale n hearty . I don't know what to do,how to find the answers .

I am sorry for your loss.

IUGR can happen for many different reasons, and they aren't always able to be identified. It can happen suddenly. We had no idea my daughter was suffering from this when she was born - I had a normal pregnancy, and right up until the last 4 weeks, she was growing beautifully. Then she just stopped. She ended up born well below average weight, and it wasn't until they delivered they realised my placenta looked like it was totally depleted (such as your insufficiency), which explained her lack of growth, but it was never discovered why my placenta depleted too soon. We also had no idea this was the problem until she was delivered. I was lucky - she made it to 38 weeks and 5lb weight. She needed time in NICU, but was home within 10 days. I can't imagine what you have gone through.

However, if it is any reassurance, they don't always know why. My placenta was sent off for testing and they never actually found out why it depleted and she stopped growing. Unfortunately being older mothers does make us higher risk (I was 36 at the time) for these complications.
