We had a growth scan today, although placenta flow is ok and waters have increased, the waters are still low so we will definstely be meeting baby B early! We will be having scans at 34 and 36 weeks with BPP ultrasounds and CTG's in between but we've been told to prepare for induction or csection at 36 weeks if my waters reduce more and 38 if they stay the same. His growth is slowing, he was estimated 2lb 9 two weeks ago and 3lb 2 estimated today, so they said a guide would be 4-5lb at delivery.
feeling very overwhelmed! Hoping my milk comes in, I avoid managing csection recovery while trying to visit him in NICU if he gets kept in.
Heres a pic the consultant gave us, he's a carbon copy of his dad in first pic his eyes are open and he's pulling his tongue!

That's fab that all is still ok, b came home at what would've been 33 weeks and he weighed 4lbs 10, so hopefully wouldn't need to stay in

A positive update. I'm glad it went well. I have been thinking of you (or some reason I thought your appointment was tomorrow)
C section recovery and NICU is fine. I was told with my middle child ( where I had a few similar issues to you) that a c section was the safest delivery route for my baby. I'm glad I took that route. Have they planned to give you steroids?

Aw what gorgeous pictures!! I am sending lots of vibes for a quick exit from hospital, and vibes that Little one can stay in as long as is possible (and safe).

No mention of steroids I think they are pretty confident ill get past 34 weeks

In my hospital they give steroids if you deliver before 37 weeks.
