Measuring small at 34 weeks Kalani Due April 7 (boy); 1 child; Pompano Beach, Florida 5 posts
4th Aug '08

I am a first time mommy and I measured 29cm at 34 weeks...I'm very scared since the normal size is 2cm less than how many weeks you are pregnant. My doctor said i should measure at least 32cm. I am having an ultrasound tomorrow to see if everything is ok, my baby just might be small since i am only 5ft and 90lbs pre pregnancy. Is anyone else measuring small...I am so scared. :cry:

I personally don't believe most of the measuring stuff! I measurined big at 28 weeks 30 weeks and 34 weeks, had a growth ultrasound at 36 weeks and he measured a little small, small enough the doctor wants to do a biophysical profile on wed. So I feel you! Try to not stress, I hope everything is good for us both!

ive heard that some babies only get as big as its momma...maybe thats just it, besides if something is wrong you are pretty far along and the baby might be better on the outside in nicu than in your uterus, just stay calm and wait it out! i went thru the waiting game two weeks ago when i was measuring 35 weeks at 30 went in and just found out that im having a big boy...nothing was wrong!

you are tiny as in a5 ft and 90 lbs so I wouldn't be too worried. . and they may have your due date wrong.

I was measuring small last week when I went at for my 36 week appt. My doctor didnt seem concerned at all she said I grew from last visit so she wasnt worried. I go again on Wednesday, so we will see what this week brings!

My visits alternate between the Dr and the NP and I think they both measure differently.....Hence sometimes it seems I'm not growing and other visits it's like wow! what a change.



The best piece of advice I have ever gotten is simply this: Don't worry until there is something to worry about.
Seriously, until you have that ultrasound and it clearly shows the baby is small don't worry about a thing because more than likely there is simply nothing for you to be worried about :D

i was measuring around 7 weeks ahead which is a lot but when i went to have an ultrasound to check for size my baby was measuring too small. at 34 weeks she only was weighing in at 3 pounds 11 ounces. two weeks after that t he ultrasound said 4 pounds 2 ounces. the doctor is concerned because at 35 weeks she should have weighed around 5 and 1/2 pounds. so on tuesday i go back for another ultrasound and is she is still measuring small then he may have to take her early because she isnt receiving food. :( i just think she will be little because when the father was born he was only 5 pounds and i was only 6. so yeah ...your little one may just be small
