Measuring small at 27 (almost 28) weeks- trying not to feel worried...

At my monthly appt on Friday, my Dr. measured my stomach (the fundal height) and said that I was measuring smaller than expected- measuring 24 instead of 27 (almost 28 as I'm 28 weeks today). She scheduled me to come back in 3 weeks for another ultrasound to check the baby's growth and for my next appt. The reason I'm feeling concerned is throughout the pregnancy and on all my ultrasounds, this baby has measured right where she needs to be every time. So I'm a little concerned if she was only up 1 (she was 23 at my 23 week appt) at my 27 week appt. The doctor said she could have been in in an odd position. I'm trying not to worry but find it niggling the back of my mind and I'm feeling a bit obsessed with being sure that I can feel her moving around. Anyone had any experience with this? My first baby was also always on track.

i am 29 weeks and they told me my baby was a little bit small for how far along i am too. i have to keep getting ultrasounds to check on his gwth but other than him being a little small hes very healthy. they told me to make sure im eating good and continue to take my prenatal vitamins everyday and make sure he is kicking like hes supposed to. but i feel the same way with being obsessed and making sure that hes moving regurley everyday all the time. this will be my first child.
