Her brain is perfect, her heart is perfect, her organs are perfect. The umbilical blood flow is perfect, the placenta is perfect.
She was moving around the whole US (its amazing I can't feel most of her movements but is also reassuring...) and the Dr. kept remarking how healthy and happy she is.
Because she falls under the 10th percentile she is labeled as having IUGR, intra uterine growth restriction. I personally think that's bullshit because she IS growing and there IS NO growth restriction!!! The umbilical cord and placenta are normal and she has grown appropriately since the last scan she is just in the same percentile, she's just going to be petite.
I am small (under normal circumstances... right now I am obeese), B is small (he would protest and say average but he is only 5'8"), both my grandmothers who I take after were midgets!!! Not literally but you get my point. I come from small people and now I'm making a small person.
The true stress right now is the Dr. who did the scan suggested we come back in 6 weeks to check on her again. He very briefly mentioned that there was the small chance we would discuss whether or not the baby is better off outside the womb and induce but he felt confident that wouldn't be the case.
What a crock of shit.
I'm not doing that. I am done with any further testing or scans. I feel happy and comfortable with the information we have and I'm done trying to find something wrong. I don't know what my midwife is going to say about my decision and that may be a make or break deal with her...I don't know. If she is fine with my decision to do no more testing then great we don't have a problem. If she disagrees with me then I am going to find a new midwife. Find a new midwife potentially 7 weeks from full term...I am not freaking out.
Actually, I'm not but B is. First we need to not jump to conclusions about our midwife's stance. Second if the worst case scenario happens I feel like it will be OK. There are a lot of midwives in this area and I know I can find one that matches what I'm wanting in a birth/labor provider. Now, find one that takes our insurance? That's another stress but if we have to pay out of pocket for the experience and care that I want then so be it.
Tomorrow is the fucking 3 hr glucose test. I hate that I'm even doing it. It makes me so pissed off. I'm sucking it up in hopes of passing so I can for sure check that complication off the list to appease my midwife and cross my fingers that if I pass she will be ok to not do any more interfering medical testing. This is why I chose a midwife in the first place! If I wanted all the tests and machines I would have gone with an OB and hospital birth. That's not what I wanted.
Sigh, Things could be worse right?
