Do any of your children have Short Stature or other problems

Postby Dmr1105 » Jan 11, 2013 9:22 pm

I have an 11 year old who was diagnosed with Short Stature. There is no logical reason for her to have it, so I'm wondering if there may be a link from me having HG? I also have a six year year old. She is also small like her sister, but not as small and has not been diagnosed with Short Stature. Thanks

Thanks for the reply. By your thoughts I would say mine was moderate when I first started treatment as I had to go for iv fluids 3 times a week for the entire second tri. It's definitely mild now, but your right any hg is miserable.

My 5 yr old daughter is super short. The shortest 5 year old we've seen. I think I saw something recently about Zofran and lenth/height. It has not been officially studied as a pregnancy medicine, so who knows. I was on Zofran with her. Her grandmother on dad's side is really short though. But DH and I are above average height.

Interesting question. Two out of my three kids are short stature. The one thats not short is the one that HG was severe, the only one that I had a PICC, TPN, and zofran 24 hrs until i delivered and he was a preemie. He does have asthma, reflux and peanut allergies. I was thinking if the GI issues were related to HG, zofran or all the other meds I took in the pregnancy

Is this something that develops later? I had severe HG (and was on zofran) with my daughter but she has always been 90-95% on the height charts (she's 2 now). Of course, my husband and I are both above average height and we have a variety of heights in our families.

Hello
To put your minds at rest. My HG was the worst on my first pregancy and my daughter just turned 6 last month but is wearing 7-8 clothing as she is so tall (the tallest in her class).

MY HG was pretty bad as well. Was in hospital for most of the first 4 months. My 3 year old is just above average height (had HG with her too) and my youngest is only 9 months but is far from small (HG again).

I'm 5 foot 8 so not massively tall, and my hubby is 5 foot 10.
