Moved due date to oct 4 th and baby still small.

hi ladies i have a computer again yay!!!!!!
had my follow up midwife appt and another u/s and they moved my due date back to 0ct 4 . lil man is still small not growing aswell as he should be by now Sad but he still looks healthy (heart , brain and organs) which is positive Smile but just small... i was given a diffrent due date tho. im not to sure what a diffrence of six days is gunna do but offically all my medical paper work says due oct 4 :confused: the tech explained that is the biggest that kesler is messuring right now. but is still small. the specialist will be seeing me monthly untill Kesler comes. There is still talk about steriods to make sure his lungs are developed ( but we havent started any yet) the specialist strongly feels that this is caused by a intrauterine infection :confused: i asked him what kinda of infection and he couldnt give me any awnsers yet but he did a few blood draws and i am awaiting results. he said that the calcium deposit also could be caused by the infection. and he told me that a infection will rapidly age my placenta. But to be positive if kesler can stay in there cooking and growing 95% he will be a healthy normal lil boy :bigarmhug: we are focusing on being positive right now!!! i go back for a u/s in a month and another consullt. If he hasnt started to grow there will be some serious talk about what to do. I think thats all i have to say other than that all is well curtis and sky can feel kesler move soo its really neat for them Smile hope i can still stay on the sept board. jen

:bighug: You can stay on the September board no matter what! I'm sorry that you didn't get better news, but that is great that Kesler is looking super healthy even though he's small. I'm saying a prayer for you that all goes well and he is able to keep baking in there! It sounds like your doctors are doing a good job keeping an eye on things. Keep us posted!

Sorry that things weren't as good as you hoped they would be, but it's a good sign that K looks great and healthy, just small. Please stay here! I'm glad the dr.s will be watching you closely.

You're not allowed to leave September, lol. I'm glad to hear the baby looks healthy, albeit a little on the petite side. Hopefully he will start packing on the pounds and you won't have any more issues.

What a bummer, I hate backwards due date changes Lol but you can definitely stay here, if I was due on the 4th of one month I'd be all but guarenteed to deliver in the month before it! (I was actually due Sept. 2 with my oldest and she ended up being a July baby)
Glad everything looks good other than his size, hope he goes through a big growth spurt soon and catches up to where he's supposed to be Smile

My son was on the smaller size as well. His twin sister was apparently hogging all the food in there, but I can tell you, aside from being an itty bitty newborn, he's happy, healthy and full of mischief.

It is so nice to hear he is healthy! I hate how doctors can never give you a clear answer as to why something is happening!
