it really doesnt mean much. they sent me to a neonatologist coz i was measuring soo small and not gaining alot of weight ( i gained a total of 11lbs) they found out that my son was acually 9% above average and i was just carrying internally. he tuned out to be a happy healthy 8lbs 1oz 20 and 1/4 inches

it doesnt matter to much they told me
when i was 32 to weeks bub always measured 1 or 2 weeks more evrery time got measured. midwifes never worry if baby is healthy like heartbeat and pregnancy is going fine.

when i was pregnant i always measured less then i was in week they just told me that he was a small baby and that he might have been laying in a funny position so dont worry about it i think they just like to scare us

I measured 2-4 more than I was when I was preg with my last child,did ultrasound to check fluid and everything was normal.
Had my baby and she is perfect and healthy nothing wrong they never knew for sure why ,thought she may be just a big baby but she only weighed 6 lbs 11 oz and 18 inches so she was def not big ,the only thing they could figure was that when I laid back for the measurement the baby stretched out long ways and that caused the measurement to be more.Hope this helps to put your mind at ease.

measuring isn't super accurate. i usually measured ahead of schedule because my son was so big ~10lbs 15 oz! but then different weeks i would measure to be the week i was so it just depends on the day

Quoting Felicity:



Quoting Ciara:

It could of been the positioning of the baby which caused you to measure smaller (or she didnt measure right) but if you're measuring 38 weeks and you are then thats a good sign, your baby is healthy and where it should be. Congrats and best of luck with labor!!





Awe i was hoping to hear that things were moving long fast! lol.






LOL I know pregnancy is a long and sometimes drawn out process but once your baby is here it'll go by so fast you wont even know it!! I remember giving birth to my first son as if it were yesterday and hes already 8 yrs old!
