Answer: Hi dear, Sounds like IUGR case.IUGR means intrauterine growth restriction. In this condition,baby doesn't grow to normal weight.and most of the time the baby is underweight and needs to be delivered early due to the complications.it could happen due to placental abnormalities,high BP in mother etc.it cannot be cured but regularly monitoring baby through scans can deliver baby early and safe.you didnot mention the weight of your baby in post.go by what your doctor suggests.

Answer: Hi dear, A scan would reveal it first.but you can also find out by examining physically. 1-Try pressing gently on your pubic bone.if you feel anything hard and round,this is probably your baby’s head. 2-Your baby is probably head down if you feel kicks up high and “butterfly” feelings down low. 3-often hiccups are felt below belly button 4- The infant is probably head down if the heartbeat is low in your belly. Ask anyone else to try to hear it.
