accuracy of growth scans
Hello ladiesPhew what a day....so had my normal midwife appointment for 34 weeks and it doesnt go well. She says theres protein in my urine very high blood pressure that she took 3 times all 145/100 and when she measures me she tells me im measuring 40cm well I nearly fell off the bed??? She rings pau and tells me to go down straight away. Completely different story...no protein in new urine sample... blood pressure 134/90 and then ive a growth scan and baby is measuring 6.5lb already but they arnt concerned I then have blood pressure checked again and its 110/72 so im sent home.....so many questions to ask like how can it be so different. ...ill have a 9lb at 40 weeks how can they not be concerned if I go over ill have to deliver a 10lb im shitting myself scared!!! Phew lol and the thing thats really annoyed me is she showed me the ac hc fl measurements and ust looked in notes n there not there should I ring them tomorrow to see if I csn collect them???
So has anyone any experience of growth scans whether right or wrong easier said than done and I know theres nothing I can do about the size but would love to know ur stories if possible....
A friend of mine had one at 36 weeks and was told hers was 6.6lb and she had him at 41 weeks and was 9lb
Ive been told babies put on half pound a week mw didn't exactly tell me I was wrong just stressing now if they allow me to go over ill have a 10lb
On another note on scan she measured a foot and said wow thats bigits 7.3cm already lol
