Fetus Stomach not growing like it should
PokeyKris posted:
My daughter in law was just put on complete bed rest because her sonogram showed the fetus' stomach was not as big as it should be. I have never heard of this and would like to know what we should be concerned about.
Byroney_WebMD_Staff responded:
Dear PokeyKris,

This is something your daughter-in-law should discuss with her physician. He or she has her health history and the sonogram, and can give an expert opinion about what's going on.

I hope all goes well for everyone in your family,
