  5. has anyone had growth ultrasound

has anyone had growth ultrasound Rss

i have diabetes doctors have ordered growth ultrasound for bubba in few weeks time

I had GD too but didn't have a growth scan: possibly because my measurements stayed at the expected rate?

Hope all goes well for you.

Try not to worry.

They are probably just trying to keep an eye on you both. If bub is big they might even take you earlier!!!
I will most likely have to have one, but for the opposite problem! My OB wants to check if bubs is too small - I have high BP, so it can affect their growth later in the pregnancy. It's not confirmed yet, but would just be a simple US to measure. Nothing to worry about smile

i am little worried 29weeks with big bubba but i am sure between my doctors & dietitian , ultrasound technical my mate Russell will look after me ,



not sure if they will deliver bubba early?????
i had a scan at 29 weeks 31 weeks and am having one on Monday at 36/37 weeks

Kaleb almost 7, and Zayne 3. and 4 weeks with numb

how it all going for you ???
Yep, I had GD with both kids and had growth scans done. GD can increase the size of your baby hence the reason for the scan. DS was born 2 weeks early so no need for the scan for him although it was booked in. DD was measured as being big for dates so we decided that if she did not come early she would be induced a week early which is what happened. She ended up being 3.6kg so all was good.
Good luck with your scan just watch you diet and exercise plenty and you should be fine.

I had one at 33 weeks with DD when I had GD.. She ended up being an okay size though and I was also allowed to deliver her overdue..
They did mention if she was big I'd have a Cser around 38 weeks.

GL with your U/S and with bubs smile
