Throughout my pregnancy, I have been measuring perfectly up til my last doctors appointment, I was a week behind (i am 36 wks). My doctor doesnt seem concerned. Will this mean my baby will be smaller at birth? Should I request an ultrasound? I am worried!
It could just mean your baby is low down cuz when I went for my 33 week I measured 35 becuase he was all up at the top. Then a gain they told me he would b big so... Dont worry tho if your baby is a lil small she or he will b easier to push out! Lol
Lol...My Dr. Doesn't even use the .Cm tape measurer he just uses his hands...He let me feel her head at the Dr. Appt!!! I hope he pulls out a measurer though!! Cuz I am the most paranoid person you'll meet and I wanna make sure everything is perfect!!!!
Sometimes little one conceals himself well inside the womb. And my measurements aren't really stable too I used to measure a lot smaller during first trimester. Now i'm measuring 2 weeks ahead of little one's gestational age.In some cases some women just have smaller little ones but theyre perfectly healthy if your doctor's not worried about it then probably the measurements isnt that far behind.
I'm at 27 weeks and i'm measuring 29. I've consistently measured 2 1/2 weeks ahead. The nurse I spoke with said they measure to see how the baby's developing but that it really doesn't mean anything because I could simply have a large baby. It won't necessarily affect my due date or baby's health in any way. Seems kind of pointless to me after learning that.
My measurements went down, that's due to the bay's head being down. Also called "lightening" or having the baby "drop down". It means she or he is practicing the escape route position. My baby has been head down for 3 weeks. I've only gained 22lbs, and am 37, almost 38 weeks along. The doc says 7 1/2 pounds give or take.
I was 6 lb 5 oz. My husband had to make me freak the other day by telling me he was 10 lbs! Chances are the baby is fine, and weight is normal. Have you had a ultrasound lately? I got one at 8 months, which was routine from what I understand. They can guage the weight from that.
