The best thing you can do is relax. Stress is definitely not good for her. Your doctors will monitor you closely if they feel its necessary. We have had a micro preemie (26 wks at 1lb 9.5oz) and although there were definite complications she is a healthy 5 year old. Our bodies were made to carry babies! Don't worry so much, and get lots of rest.

Why wouldnt you make it to full term? You can carry a larger baby, lots of petite women do.



U/S measurements are often off. Chin up, theres nothing to really be worried about unless your doctor mentioned something you didnt put in the OP.

I have a friend who was 110 lbs full term and delivered a 9lb baby vaginally. We're made to carry babies. It's not just bigger women that have big babies.



Also, why wouldn't you make it full term? Because the baby was kicking your ribs? lol

I'm 115 lbs and 4'11, my daughter is estimated at 6 lbs already, I'm dilating and effaced but that is in no way linked to my size. There's no reason to make pre term goals there's no reason why you won't go to your due date or even overdue.

My cervix ached so badly for about the last 4 weeks and I had that feeling that he was "falling out". I wasn't even dialated a little bit, it's just pressure and a feeling we aren't used to. My son made it just fine to 38.5 weeks even though it felt like he was coming for a few weeks before that. Also I was thin and only gained 15 pounds but my son was normal weight, almost 7 pounds. You should be okay :) it's normal to be concerned, but try not to freak yourself out too much.
