  • I've heard of it. Is it normal? No. Is it cause for alarm? No.

    There may be problems but most likely everything will be fine. If there are any problems, the main one is slower growth and a lower birth weight. You'll probably be monitored a little more closely from this point on just to make sure everything is going fine.
