37weeks 5days Ultrasound question/concern

Anonymous

I had an ultrasound today.  With my first LO, LO always measured right on time everywhere but legs (they measured ahead of schedule.)  With this LO, today's ultrasound showed head and femur at 36weeks and her tummy at 39weeks.  Should I be concerned or am I just going to have a short baby?

What did the tech or dr say? I would imagine if it were an issue the dr would say something.

No. Don worry about it, the femur length is usually smaller than the abdomen circumference. Plus you're so far along its very hard to get accurate measurements.

I saw the doctor before the ultrasound.  He had been saying for two weeks that they were going to measure/weigh her and I had to remind him about it this week.

Late term u/s are notoriously inaccurate. I wouldn't worry...

U/S this far along are more incorrect than they are correct.

If the baby is measuring on time from the outside of your ab it'll be fine.

Good to know.  Like I said, with my first LO, their femur always measured ahead of time.
