Im 27.3 weeks now I had an us last week and my daughter measured small im being sent to mfm on the 23rd . For another ultrasound. Ive been eating a lot of protein to see if that helps. I am over weight have hbp that is controlled by meds . Dd is 4/4 sch cs is 3/29 . Going to try a vbac prior ti sch cs tho. Anyways just wanted to know if anyone else went thru baby measuring small and in low percentile of growth and what steps were done ? Thanks ladies.

P.s the awesome mommas in my ddg have given me great advice. But im wanting to see if anyone has been thru this.

My baby measured small the whole pregnancy and was estimated to be a little bit over 7lbs . Well she came out 9lbs 4oz so they could be off. Good luck to you though.

DS measured small but it didn't become an issue until around 32 weeks. I had ultrasounds done every other week and when the last 2 it looked like there was no change I was induced at 39 weeks. They have no idea why he was measuring so small. They estimated his weight to be around 5lbs 5oz at my last ultrasound and he ended up weighing 5lb 11oz at birth.

I am not sure if they said what precentile but they did a repeat c-section at 39 weeks exactly but they did ultrasounds almost every time I went to the OBGYN. They said the same thing about my son and he was 9lbs 10oz . The smallest child I had is my oldest she was 6lbs 11oz.
