Some background to our story; I work in a well-baby nursery and Neonatal intensive care unit, and most of my friends do as well… My entire pregnancy was documented and witnessed by these people, and they were so excited to be among the first to meet my daughter. I had the perfect pregnancy. Minimal nausea, no swelling, optimal weight gain, and no blood sugar or high blood pressure issues. So when at 37 weeks my doctor announced I was oddly measuring 2 weeks behind it did take us all off guard. We were given a diagnosis of “small for gestational age” then sent home on bed rest for a week until I was too be induced. Once the day finally arrived everyone on the floor was excited! Every single one of the nurses had patiently waited 9 months to meet my little girl.
