  • I think if all the measurement in the ultra sound were normal then everything is probably fine.

  • That is all they usually measure to determine the baby's size. Sounds like your baby is growing just fine. She must be staying in a tight little ball inside of you! :-) Your measurements may eventually catch up. I have measured 5 weeks ahead and yet my babies haven't been very large!! It's just a guide for them. Congratulations on your pregnancy!!

  • I am only 7 weeks along, i had my first doc apt and they did an ultra sound n gave a me picture. The baby was so small just like a little bean. My friend showed me her ultra sound at 7 weeks and her baby was soooo much bigger than mine. I guess everyones different, but i know how u feel, i got kinda worried too when i saw how much bigger her baby was then mine. I dont think its anything to worry about!
