I went to my doctor's appointment a couple of days ago. I am currently 24.5 weeks pregnant and when my Dr. Measured my tummy he said it was measuring kinda small. He said it was good last month but it wasn't measuring up this month.

He told me not to worry too much but he asked for me to have another ultrasound just to make sure everything was ok.

Has this happened to anyone before?

Yep yep when I was pregnant it was like that ... Im sure ur fine. I measured small for like 3 weeks and then all of a suddne I was measuring big and then before I had him we were right on track ... Sometimes the baby gets a lil behind and then plays ccatch up but just becuse ur measuring one way or the other doesnt mean anything ... I was measuring right on track but jakson waspretty little when he was born ... Not to try and scare u or anything. But I hope that helps.

Thank-you
Thanks for answering. I am a little worried but not too much. I am trying to stay as positive as possible.

I remember that when my mother had my little brother they told her her stomach was too small to be nine months but my brother came out weighing 6.7 pounds and was 19in. Long so I am going by that and trying to stay as positive as possible.

If you don't mind... How big was your baby when born?
