Re: who's getting U/S who's deciling?

Since I'm so high risk, I get ultrasounds at every visit to ensure we dont miss anything at any given time. May sound crazy but it has saved my babies lives before by doing it this way. My youngest daughter stopped growing at 29.1 weeks. She had been behind in growth so we had been watching her closely. I ended up at L&D for severe overall pain. Turns out I had pneumonia so the on-call doctor did an ultrasound only to discover how behind my daughter was so I was hospitalized and over the course of a few days I got u/s from several techs and doctors. She didnt grow at all so I was set up for an emergency induction and NICU was called. I ended up going into labor on my own and she was born at 33 weeks. Saved her life. She was doing SO bad in the womb that had we waited it out any longer, chances are I would've lost her.
