Patient : I am 37 weeks pregnant (first child) and i got told that my placentas matured im at grade 2-3 and that the baby is not growing properly the weight went down to 5 pound 2 ounces, the doctor told me to come back in 2 weeks to see how it is then and to talk about being induced and if i dont feel the baby move to go to doctors, which i went to doctors 2 days after being told about the placenta and they checked me over and everything was fine, but apprentley the baby is over 6 pounds and growing just fine? Im just confused because im getting told two different things by 2 different hospitals and i dont know what to think is mu baby fine is it not.has baby really grown over 2 pounds in 2 days? And there has been a big difference in my babys movements and i feel really concerned and i feel like there is something wrong with me/baby but doctors just keep saying everythings fine what should i do? Im constantly being sick, headaches, drained all the time, can barely walk have the time with being so drained and in pain. I feel like i dont know whats going on with the baby and how can i trust the hospitals when im getting told different things?
