I had an ultrasound yesterday. I am 37 wks pregnant with my second. Baby measured between 36 & 37 weeks everyone but his legs. They measured at 32 weeks. My husband and I are both only 5'4" and our daughter is also short for her age (she is 3). Has this happened to anyone, where the sonogram showed the baby legs being short compared to the rest of body?

  • I don't know other than to say my 28 mo old daughter is 34 inches tall and is the height of a child 6-8 months younger than her. 19th percent and my mom was 4'6".
