    I'm due in Feb. early on I was measuring small, then most recent growth scan im now measuring 3 weeks ahead! Its hard not to worry but I think the scans can be a bit hit and miss. If they were really concerned they'd be seeing you sooner I'm sure.
    My first measured small and they kept saying she may have "growth retardation" thru the whole pregnancy! She came out 54cm and now at 3 is still in 97th percentile for height! Hope the next scan puts your mind at ease x

    I had a scan yesterday and I'm measuring small for 30 weeks.
    She is about 1.2kg's and apparently that is small.
    I was about to write a very similar post March - you beat me too it!
    I too would love some advice!
    I have GDM and am worried that my placenta isn't feeding her enough (same happened to DS but I had low amniotic fluid too)
    I have another scan in 2 weeks... praying she grows lots before then!!!!!

    I was told bin was measuring 3 weeks behind. 2 weeks later and I had been stuffing my face full of anything I could find and bub is
    Still 1 week behind.
    I'm 36 weeks Monday.
    If they were worried they would see you asap.
    My mw wasn't that worried.

    I hope everything it's ok for you y and bub.

    Yep, i was told DS was measuring small at 28 weeks. I had to go to the hospital for a scan to make sure everything was alright. It all just came down to the position he was in- he was lying transverse.
    He was born at 38 weeks at the healthy size of 3.74kgs.

    Was she measuring your fundal height with a tape measure? Or was she feeling bub with her hands?

    Fundal height can vary a lot, I have gone from an appointment with my OB straight to a MW appointment and there was a 4cm difference. Being dehydrated (or simply not drinking enough) can lead to low fluid levels it's pretty hot where I am at the moment (WA) maybe try upping your fluid intake.

    If she was feeling bub then it might be worth getting a scan done to check.
