  • If the doctor is not worried then I wouldn't be! Each baby develops at his/her own pace and those guidelines are just that.. guidelines for the "average" baby, but babies come in all shapes and sizes!

  • Ha ha you're just lucky. I was tiny before I got pregnant. Like size 0 or maybe 1 and at that point i think i measured 39 weeks. I thought I had a huge baby but she turned out only to be 7 pounds.

    Its pretty normal and it could just be the position of the baby. If he is not worried then dont give it a second thought
