  • She might just be a litle chubby since you are 34 weeks and her body is measuring 39?
    It's not something they really worry about unless her head continues to measure small months after she is born.

  • I had gestational diabetes with 2 of my pregnancies. Never said anything about either head being small. They did say the babies are sometimes big and may have slow lung maturation. I guess if they don't seem worried and haven't said anything till now then I'd wait for the next appointment and seek more information.
