at 18 weeks, baby A was 17 weeks +/- 10 days
and baby B was 17 weeks 4 days +/- 10 days

My son was small for dates but I can't remember measurements, they did monitor me closely though because I had pre-e which is why he was small.

This baby was measuring at just over 20 weeks at 20 +2 so is exactly where they are expected to be, although they are going to monitor me to make sure it grows properly due to my first being small.

my first always measured about 5 days bigger than what i was supposed to be until the last couple weeks, and with this one so far i only had 1 ultrasound at 12w 4 days and it measured 13 weeks 1 day. so i must make big babies...lol your gestational age is just an estimate since they never can really pinpoint the exact day you conceived so the baby has a good chance of usually measuring bigger or smaller than what you are. i dont think it really means anything. my first came right on my due date and at the end she was supposed to be 14 lbs by the ultrasound and measured 42 weeks and she came out a healthy 8lb 5 oz and 21 inches :)
