Measuring Small and a blood test?

Ladies...I just received a call from my doctor.  I need a blood test to determine my hormone levels.  I had an ultrasound on Friday and they said that it looked like the baby should be bigger.  I am very worried and I just feel like something is wrong.  This didn't happen with my first baby.  What happens if the blood test indicates something bad??  My hormone levels arent' where they need to be??  Does this mean a miscarriage??  What happens??

How far along are you?? Could it be your EDD is off b/c that can cause a big difference!!! Just a few days can mean a big difference in your numbers!

Your dates may have just been off, or you could have ovulated later than expected.  Chances are they are probably just checking to see where your Hcg levels are and that they are matching up to how far along they think the baby is.  I hope all is well with you and baby.
