measuring small?

Postby ooribaby » Thu Jul 25, 2013 6:42 am

So at 29+5 weeks, I had an appointment and was measuring at 26cm. That's almost 4cm smaller than I should be. The OB put in for an ultrasound but when I called to schedule it, they gave me a date 3-4weeks out. In my mind, I should be getting this done sooner...not sure if I should call the doctor back and see if she can do something about getting me in sooner. Anyone else measuring small? How worried should I be?

I would call your doctor and see if they can get you in sooner just for your own peace of mind! Did the doctor seem concerned about the measurement? I have no personal experience with this but plenty of people on here seem to measure big and be alright! My sister in law was also measuring small and gave birth 2 weeks early to a perfectly healthy 6 lb 11 oz baby boy! So here's to hoping the same for you :)

Hi! My lo was born in Sept but I measured very small with my Sept lo and my older son. Defiantly call your doctor and see if they want the u/s sooner. I measured 8-10 weeks behind with my Sept lo I was at times "losing fundal height" and gained almost no weight (I'm fairly small to begin with) and he was born at 6 pounds 4 ounces (my older son was 6 pounds 2 ounces) your lo is probably fine just laying in your back but still......I know I was still nervous with my Sept lo even though I had been through it with my older son. good luck - message me if you wanna talk
