the Doctor Said I'm Too Small!!! :'( (Page 1)

You guys I went to the doctor today and you know how they measure where the top of your uterus is? Well she said that you should be about a centimeter for every week you are. So I am 35 weeks, she said I should be about 35 centimeters. But I am only measuring about 31. She is scheduling me for an ultrasound next week. She said it might be no big thing but i'm worried. She said they would look for obvious problems like low amount of amniotic fluid. She said if worst comes to worst, they would end up delivering him pre-term in the event that they think he would grow better outside rather than inside the womb. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm really worried.

I haven't but, I have a question..Would they then have to do a cesearan or just induce labor? I have had a cesearean, I am here for you if worse comes to worse, or if things get better, when are you due?

I'm due march 21. I'm not sure though. I imagine they would try inducing first. But I didn't think to ask. Hopefully it doesn't come to that. But at least i'm 35 weeks and every extra day helps. Thanks girl you're great.

It's Gonna Be Alright
Hey girl. Don't worry, I think everything is gonna be great. Is there a chance that you could only be 31 weeks instead of 35? Maybe that is why she only says 31cen. Either way I think everything will be fine and you don't need to worry. Think about little joshua and how great he is. Keep a smile and happy thoughts.
Lots of love,
heather

Awww, sweetie your baby boy will be just fine! I am sure all that cold jelly just made him freeze so he curled up tighter! Don't stress hun, because everything will be great! Congratulations on hitting 35 weeks!! 4 more to go!!

Yeah, hun, don't worry! Not good for the baby! You are far enough along that if they have to induce, everything will be just fine. No worries. Like the one post said, you may not be as far along as they originally though, they are usually wrong about that! Good luck!

Thanks you guys. I have my ultrasound appointment on friday at 2 o clock. We know that I am 35 weeks for sure though. I think that maybe he was just curled up. And I can't wait to see him and make sure he's alright. I can't wait to see him off screen! Lol.
