  • Measurements can be so far off in either direction. I wouldn't worry at all.

  • Measurements are an estimate. They might move your due date- but everything's probably fine:)

  • I was measuring a week smaller, then two weeks later I was measuring a week bigger, I would say you'll probably be fine :)

  • I am in your exact same position. I am 32 weeks on tuesday. I have been measuring 4cm smaller than I should be but he is very very active and always has a great heart rate, so 2 weeks ago they gave me an ultrasound to make sure he is measuring the right the size, and he is. He is actually a perfect size, my belly just isnt stretching and growing like it should. Everything is fine, and I am sure everything is fine with you as well. If you would like, you can message me and talk more about it darling.

  • Im praying its just me being tall and my tummy just taking its time. I know God is watching my baby girl and thank you all for your advice, it does calm my nerves some!
