I had IUGR with my first, so when I was pregnant with my 2nd, I had NST and BPPs starting about 30 wks. The NST (non stress tests) monitored baby's heart rate and I pushed a button when I felt the baby move at all. The BPP is a detailed ultrasound to measure baby's growth, fluid levels, placenta function, and cord blood flow.

IUGR is growth restriction where the placenta isn't working well, occasionally its caused by an abnormality of the uterus, your OB/GYN can maybe explain your case in more detail. Sometimes the babies do ok, they're just small, and sometimes there's other complications. My OB told me once you have it, you're higher risk for it in future pregnancies and I'd need extra monitoring.

I read about your loss, and I'm so, so sorry. I can't imagine what you're going through. HUGS!

Interuterine growth restriction. Which means the baby's growth is restricted
Because of poor blood flow through the placenta. The baby either stops growing or is growing below the proper percentile.
