I went to my OB apt. today and my doc.(the one who has delivered both my boys)says that im measuring at 34 weeks ....she used that little measuring tape, anyway,this time i am having a girl...could that be why im smaller this time? Im already getting impatient for the arrival of the due nov. 28th.eeeesh

  • I don't think the tape is all that accurate. Your water might be low too. I don't think the sex of the baby makes a difference.

  • i agree wuth 1st post, they told me one week before i had my first girl, that i was measuring small too. They said she was going to be about 5lbs.,,,,,,,,,she was 7lb. 8oz. ,,,,,thats a good weight. I really wouldn't worry too much, but if they gave you any advice to make a difference i would do it just in case. Good luck & congrats!! :)

  • i am having a girl this time as well after having 2 boys and they say i am measuring small so idk if it has something to do with it or not. But good luck!

  • I ALWAYS measured 3 weeks behind with my first two and I am measuring 2 weeks ahead with this one. It doesnt mean anything!! It can be the positioning of the baby so the OB's dont tend to order u/s to check fluid level until you measure 4 weeks off in either direction
