Brief Answer:
What is your height please ?

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for the update.
The ultrasound shows that the long bones are short.
The rest of the growth of the baby is normal.
The baby is not abnormal, just that the height and the long bones are shorter than average.
Are both of you short in height ?
What is your height and height of your wife ?

Brief Answer:
Nothing major to worry about.

Detailed Answer:
Okay, since the overall growth of the child is normal, do not worry much.
It is possible just that the baby may be slightly shorter, but there is no sign of any major abnormality.
If you wish, you can get a second opinion too, on the ultrasound scan, to confirm the findings.
Wishing you all the best.

What can a psychiatrist give that works well to help treat my anxiety and depression (both chronic and severe). I already take venlafexine and have been scripted for alprazalam twice which really helped although she is reluctant to script me for it again as it can become addictive. What else could help? I have been in therapy and told i have a personality disorder , something like BPD although do not really fit the criteria. I am a chronic self harmer.
