27 Week Appt...Baby Measuring Small??? Update in Red

So I had my glucose test today and all went good there. I then had my repeat 4D and that also went really well...she cooperated this time!!! I asked if she could measure her and she did and said that she was 1lb 14oz which is only up 2oz since last appt almost 3 weeks ago. she asked what my other children weigh and i replied *lbs 11oz and 7lbs 1oz. She said that she was going to schedule me for a diagnostic appt in a week so that she can get a confirmation that she is measuring behind. I asked where she was suppose to be at this point and she said over 10(10 what I dont know) and that she was at a 7.4. When I talked about this with the doctor after the ultrasound she said she would like to go ahead and get the confirmation tomorrow. I asked if my fluid was low or if the due date could be off and she said fluid looked good and due date is right(which I figured it to be anyway). So i asked what this all meant and she said if it is confirmed which I think she is pretty sure it will be then I will have to be monitored twice a week. She also said that I will go to see a specialist. She said that if she continues to not grow probably that they tend to take them a bit earlier. I have a scheduled c section at 39 weeks...will it be before this point? Also has anybody ever been through this or is going through this. Is the babies generally ok being of a low birth weight? Is it something I did? Is there something that I can do? If I do have to go twice a month what kind of monitoring is it...I know I will have more ultrasounds but do I have it every time....? Just any info would help. Thank you ladies.

I went back the following day to find out that the stomach is measuring only a couple days behind but the head is measuring like 2 weeks behind. Also according to the ultrasound she weighs 2lb 2 oz. So somehow she gained a whole 4 oz over night??? The technican just kept saying that was unbelieveable.The baby was in the breech postion the first time so we got really good pics... 4D turned out great that day!!1 but the next day she was head down and in my pelvic bone and was turned away a lot harder to get anything...the technican had to dig at my stomach to see anything. What ultra measurements would you think are more accurate.  I am 5'7 and have gained 11lbs. People say that I am really small and cant believe I am so little or as far along as I am (27w3d) especially since this is my 3rd baby. I have a date schedule with the specialist...October 13th. I am so nervous. Idk please give me your thoughts. will post in 2 groups.

If the baby is measuring small during the whole pregnancy, they will take the baby whenever they feel your womb is no longer a nurturing enviroment for your baby. It could be anytime they feel they need to take the baby.

This is not because of anything you did hun, so don't blame yourself. Every pregnancy is different and your body responds differently to each pregnancy. Just try to remain calm and not stress too much. Ultrasounds can always be wrong, remember that. There is no exact way to know what your little one is weighing until they are born.

Good luck!
