We had an awsome time at the Baby Show! When Daddy came to pick us up he even said he'll join us next year!

I'm new to this website but I was just wondering if anyone has had or has low amniotic fluid?
I am 28w +4 and today I had to have a scan to check my baby's kidney development as they measured too large at 20 week scan. Luckily they were fine but, they then told me he is too small for dates and the amniotic fluid around him low. They checked placenta was functioning properly and it is and they monitored his heart rate. I have to go back on Wednesday to see the Consultant to discuss whether i need weekly monitoring or not.
Sorry this thread is a bit long winded I would appreciate hearing from anyone with the same problem.

hi. i had this with my 4th pregnancy. but it was due to my waters leaking at 34 weeks. i was monitored weekly and scanned weekly as well and had doppler scans 2 weekly. they always looked at the placanta bloodflow to the umbilical cord and checked my babies kidneys and lungs every week. as low fluid can apparently interfere with the development of the lungs. this worried me but with the weekly scans i was much more reassured. and i went into labour at 38 weeks and gave birth to a healthy baby girl.
best to ask questions at your appointment and be reassured. try not to worry too much. the chances are you will be ok. take care.xxx

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
