I didn't even show until 8 months... both my boys were toward back of uterus so they didn't show until they turned head down. With my oldest I had to have extra ultra sounds because I was measuring small. He weighed 7lbs 3 oz. With my second, the dr knew he waa doing same thing as my first but I still had extra u/s to be sure.

Ulatrasounds are NOT a good way to measure growth

How else would a dr be able to SEE the measurements and make sure everything is ok?

The measurenents are not 100% but they can make sure baby is growing, heartbeat is strong and no other problems that could be causing slow growth.

It's not that small. It is supposed to measure same as your weeks. Try to relax util the US. Sometimes w your first kid you don't show until the end.
