Please don't worry. The steps you need to take now are
1. Get injections for lung maturity
2. Get your doppler USG and send it to me
3. Visit your doctor twice weekly
4. Be very vigilant regarding fetal movements
5. If the Doppler Scan, CTG and the fetal movements remain fine we can take your pregancy to 37 weeks, a point where there is no risk of prematurity.
Wish yoi all the best


Seem placental insufficiency Fetal wt 10th percentile so IUGR
needs Doppler studies
Alternate days AFI ,twice Daily CTG
Twice weekly BPP
and delivery according to results
Keep in touch with your consultant how is expert in dealing with IUGR
