Measuring small?

Just had my doctors appointment this morning and I'm 28 weeks today and I'm measuring 27. She said it's fine though.

Does this have anything to do with the due date or what?

  • Have you consistently measured small, or was there a change with today? It could be that baby is just in a different position than usual. Also, as long as there isn't a big difference it's usually not something to worry about.

  • She said it doesn't have anything to do with my due date, I'm just trying to get a better idea as to why we would measure smaller.

  • I am 29 weeks today. I have to go to the doctors today for an ultrasound to measure my little man because my belly has been measuring small my past 2 appointments. When I was 27 weeks I measured like 23. My doctor said that it may just be that my belly is small because I had a tiny figure before I got pregnant, and that my baby is probably the right size. So I am getting an ultrasound today for them to measure him and make sure he is the right size, but they told me I shouldnt worry about it since I feel like every move he makes and he feels super crammed in there lol.
    But If they are telling me not to worry and I am measuring like 4 smaller than I should be, then I think you should be okay if your just 1 off.
