So I posted the other day about being 36 weeks and 4 days-but measuring a week behind on my belly. So I had a scan and he was only measuring 35 weeks and 7 days but I'm supposed to be 37 weeks. They have him weighing 6lbs 1oz but are saying he's " small " to dates. They're not overly concerned but I am..days ago be was measuring the same as now yet that's not abnormal? I don't understand, and I'm really uncomfortable with this explanation. Can't switch docs or get a second opinion being this far. They also mentioned him being in the 26th percentile (no idea what that means)
The sonographer also joked that I was small so I don't cook them big, which I think is BS cos my daughter was big...her percentile at 31weeks was almost large for dates (90+). My fiancée is also not a small guy...so I don't see how that's biochemically logical lol.
Anyone have any input?
( i called and asked the actually provider to explain this all to me instead of the sonographer and haven't gotten a call yet today. )

My Son was 6 lbs 11oz when he was born. He was & is perfect & healthy so why are you worried? Every baby is totally different. Maybe you don't need so much information about dates/weights/percentiles. What can you do about it anyway?
