So I am going for an ultra sound today (I am 33 weeks pregnant) because the baby is measuring small...is this normal??? Could I be small because this is my 2nd pregnancy??? I am having such anxiety I am afraid they are going to tell me somthing is horribly wrong...HELP!!!

I wouldn't worry too much right now momma.
Are you talking about the fundal measurement, when they measure your uterus? Cause that can change just in baby's position. How small are you measurig?

my second baby they said he measured big and kept telling me it throught my prego when he was born he was 6lb 13oz not what they said. I would not worry to much cause its only an estimate not exact

With my son i was measuring 3 weeks slower.
He was 3 weeks early also. I had alot of U/s because of this. But my dr. Delivered all my family's babies and he knows how small we run..lol
I had aHealthy baby boy 5 lbs 12 oz!

With my daughter i am measuring at the week they think i am at.
But i think i am 3 weeks farther along than what my ultra sound/measurment is showing. So well see !

alot of the times that just means you haveing a small baby! but what they need to check is it could be because the amniotic fluid is low ... and that could be a bunch of different things like your leaking or cord problems. just relax thou the stress wont hep you or the baby you will know soon!!!

I'm going through the same thing. I'm measuring either 26 or 27, and I'm 31 weeks. I had an ultrasound and she's measuring 2 weeks smaller. I have to go in for repeat ultrasounds and such.
Don't stress about it, it makes it worse, just see what they say at the ultrasound, because they may say ther's nothing wrong the baby is just small.
