I measured 2-3 weeks behind during third trimester. No problems here. DS was born at 30 weeks 2.9 kg and has stacked on the weight since then.

I don't know... I measured small at 39 weeks 5 days (35cm from memory) and the OB gave me a scan because the measurement hadn't changed from 3 weeks prior... turned out my placenta was calcified and the baby wasn't getting enough nutrients. I was induced and DD was only 2.5kg even though she was basically full term (perfectly healthy though). If you're worried I'd ask for a scan.

At about 35 weeks with my DD, I hadn't grown for a couple of weeks and the midwifes got all concerned, asked second opinions, the works! They sent me for a growth scan and the whole thing stressed me out heaps!
Turns out she was just curled up, because she was already 6lbs then and was born at 9lbs 5oz!!

Yes I measured 2-3 weeks behind. It was really stressful, but in the end it was fine. She was born small (2.7kg) but caught up quick.
I was due to be induced 2 weeks early because of measuring small even though placenta looked ok in the ultrasound, but amniotic fluid looked low. but she came before they could induce me LOL

I have been measuring consistently small since the start 2-3 weeks behind at 34 weeks I measured for 30 wks so I had a growth scan everything was fine! If your worried request a scan to check placenta and amniotic fluid but try not to worry as long as ur measurements are increasing its ok!

With DS I measured a couple of weeks behind consistently since around the 30 week mark. They weren't too worried but by 34 weeks they started giving extra scans to check for growth. Had a particular scan at 36/37 weeks where he was measuring a couple of weeks behind, that was fine cuz at least he seemed healthy. But at just before 39 weeks at another scan they found no change in growth at all so I was induced a couple of days later with an IUGR diagnosis. They were expecting him to weight 5 pound 9 but he came out at just under 6. He's a beautiful healthy 18 month old now!
Anyway, it seems many people have measured small and have been fine. All I can say is as long as your baby is keeping up with its movements there probably isn't much to be concerned about. No harm in calling your Ob if you're concerned though.
Congratulations and good luck over the next few weeks!

I measured 2weeks behind from about 30 weeks. No one seemed bothered by it since he was still growing. I ended up being induced 5 days early due to high bp and DS weighed 2.89kg.

Up until about 24 weeks they were freaking out about how big my baby was... Then all of a sudden I started measuring small and they were worried at how far behind I was...
Ds was 4.3kg!!!
