Oh no, I'm so very sorry that the appointment wasn't filled with all good news. Your MFM sounds awesome, and I'm so thankful you're surrounded by what sounds like an awesome team.

I'll be keeping you in my thoughts these next 12 days, I know they'll be so difficult.

I'm so sorry you got such scary news - in the middle of seeing cute little Julia play on the ultrasound. I'd add my hopes and prayers that there was a measurement error and that she will grow more in these next two weeks and beyond.

Oh, I am so so sorry it didn't go better for you and Julia. I can imagine how terrifying this must be now. I am really hoping this is a measurement error - when my Alice had stopped growing she had also stopped moving (and I had a single notch and BP 200+/100+ etc.).

Measurement errors do occur, even with experienced sonographers and even if you had the same one measuring both times.

Thinking of you at this time xx

Thank you for all the kind words. I am praying there was an error. Have been back to my blood doc this morning - they want to see if they need to adjust the lovenox intake - last time when we had the growth scare it helped to up it.
I am resting, eating some natural antioxidents, blood thinners and lots of protein...laying on my left side, anything that will help for the next 12 days.
Baby girl is moving all around today...so that's a good sign.

Trying to stay positive!

*sigh*
Sometimes we don't know what's going on, but there is one who does. Praying selfishly that Julia is healthy and remains here with us.

Here's my little man who basically quit growing for 8 weeks (week 19 - 27).
