I am 35.5 weeks pregnant and had my 36 week ultrasound today. My little guy measured "small" at 5 lbs even- at the 20th percentile. His head and legs are measuring close to 34-35 weeks but abdomen is measuring closer to 32-33 weeks. Both DS and DD were 6.5 lbs (he was 6.8 and she was 6.11) and about 22 inches long at 40 weeks- so I definitely don't have a history of 'big' babies, lol. Fluid levels were fine, cord blood flow fine, normal pregnancy.
I know how notoriously inaccurate ultrasound weight estimates can be. My midwife wants to have me come back for another growth check at 38 weeks-
would you have it done? Or would you opt out? (: (I'm not nervous about him growing well- my babies have both been long and skinny at full term. I just love to hear what other people would do! )
