I went for my 20 wk scan on Tuesday, the Dr. done a few scans and told me my baby is only measuring at 18 wks. I was sent a head Dr. to have a chat with me. I arranged to go back on Friday for more scans.
On Friday, a Dr. re-scan me in every position possible and told me some worrying things. My baby is lying very low, so low in fact I was believed to be starting labour. Because of this, it was impossible to get a good scan. Also now being 21 wks, the babe still hasn't grown.
So tomorrow, Im travelling to a special unit miles away where they will scan me again, and possibly give me an amniocentesis, which is basically an injection into the womb to collect some matter. This carries a chance of a mis-carriage, and is odd this late on in a pregnancy. The results of this test will tell me if it is going to have any defects, like Downs Syndrome or Spina Bifida. If this test comes back positive, I will then need to decide whether to terminate or not.
Anyways, it's a girl.
