That's what the doctor is diagnosing me with. I have refused the biopsy bc the usual cutoff is 22 weeks, and I am 22.4, and there would be little difference in the way I am being treated. The chance of mc/sb is 2-4% with CVS, and it's not worth it to me.
As it stands, the placenta is significantly smaller than it should be, and it's showing up the wrong color on the u/s. Baby is not being supported by the placenta like she should be. Considering the rate of (or lack of) growth at this point leads the doc to believe it is strictly the placenta and not the baby herself.
And the prognosis isn't the greatest. Doc is certain I won't make term, and he said he would breathe easier when we hit 28 weeks. He predicts baby will be here between 28 and 30 weeks. I am hoping for 32 personally.
If I deliver before 34 weeks I will most likely be going to a center 2 hours from home and M will be at my mil's for the duration. The earlier she is delivered, the longer she has to stay.
However, and it's a big one, baby looks good. Heart, brain, kidneys, cord - all good. And her heart rate was 157.
She refused to show her left kidney until the doc came in the room.
