So sorry that the baby isn't growing properly. You must be freaking out. Only a month??? It doesn't seem long enough but if thats what is needed for the baby then I guess thats what has to happen. Keep baking those babies, you're doing a great job Mama

Wow, sorry to hear about the slowdown in growth. Was it you who had the TTTS? I have heard such reassuring words from my own OB about birth after 28 weeks. Of course it's generally not ideal, but you'll do what you need to do to keep everyone healthy and safe. Good luck at the next appointment. I hope you can keep them in for the full month if not longer!

I am glad the NST showed that all seemed to be fine. Another month is better than now. Your doctor is obviously going to monitor you very closely given the TTTS. As much as we want ideal...healthy babies outside of the womb are better than babies not thriving in the womb, especially between now and full-term. I will keep you in my thoughts. Try to rest and relax the best you can. :bigarmhug:

Even though steroids probably aren't alot of fun, hopefully they will help allow you to keep baking and help Baby A grow. I hope all goes well on Friday!!!
