I have a friend who is just over 36 weeks pregnant and she is measuring small. She had an ultra sound done the beginning of this week and the "specialist" said the baby was perfectly healthy just small, guessing around 4 pounds. She is now taller than 5 foot and is 90 pounds soaking wet and her DH is 160 pounds and is just under 6 foot. So both on the smaller side. Between 35 and 36 weeks she was measuring 33 weeks and at her appointment today she measured 32 weeks.
Let me back track a bit. At her first appointment she was measuring big as well as baby so they moved her due date up by nearly 2 weeks and the doctor told her she would probably have a big baby and need a c-section.
Okay now the baby is measuring small and they are still leaving her due date the same rather than moving it back, where it most likely should be in the first place i'm sure, but anyways her doctor is inducing her a little before 38 weeks because he is saying the baby will grow better on the outside than the inside. Her doctor is an a$$ hole IMO and is just doing what he wants in his convenience. It just sounds far to fishy for me. You would also think that if baby was measuring smaller you would either move the date back to where it was at first or at least keep baby baking as long as possible. But nope her doc wants to get the baby out. At her appointment today they set the date for August 9th to induce and he checked her and she is dilated to a 2, so he says. I don't know if i believe a word he says. I just wish I could say more to her to get her to see but she has been so brained washed. I don't want to jeopardize our friendship either because they are really good friends of ours. IT JUST THAT THE SITUATION IS SO WRONG!!!!!
I don't know what to do. I just pray and hope all goes well and baby turns out healthy and fine. Please pray for these people.
