10 days is nothing to be worried about, I promise. Duedates get changed all the time...sometimes I was measuring 2 weeks ahead or 2 weeks behind. Promise it's okay...if it was a problem your dr. would have told you. xoxo

Just like the moms who are worried about rushing delivery b/c the Docs say the baby is already too big...Docs and u/s aren't always right. I am sure they will keep on eye one it but I wouldn't worry. If anything you should be happy. I don't think I have ever heard a woman complain about having to push out a smaller baby!!

I"m sure if your doctors are really worried then they will order another u/s to check on baby's development in a few weeks. Babies grow at different rates, and ultrasounds are not 100% accurate. They told my sister she was having a 10lb baby and her son was only 8..

Don't worry yourself too much, there's nothing you can do about it except to make sure that you are doing what you are supposed to, taking your vitamins getting lots of rest and taking care of yourself.

doctors make mistakes they dont like to admit they screwed up your due date so they say the baby is small. most of the time the doctors guess your due date by your last period so if your egg was released a little early or a little late their guess on your due date coudl be off by as much as two weeks
