OB sent me to a high risk Dr.

So ob has been concerned on baby's weight and sent me to a high risk Dr for a level two sono. Which was today. Everything checked out fine. I am 33w+3d and baby weighs 3lbs 15oz. Which they said leaves him in the 8th percentile. High risk Dr wants to see new back in two weeks. And ob has me scheduled for NST's and BPP's twice a week. Are they making a big deal about this all or should I be concerned?

Oh and baby is measuring at 32 wks.

It could turn into a problem, but it could also just be a small baby, it happens. Follow their advice and try not to stress (easier said than done). Knowing you have a concerned doctor who is on top of things should help :) good luck!

I hope everything is okay, let us know!

I think if they were super concerned, they wouldnt wait to see you for two more weeks, i would expect more monitoring that that, if that makes sense

It could be nothing
US are notorious for being WAY off on weight

With my 2nd I had twice weekly NST's and weekly ultrasounds to monitor baby and my amniotic fluid levels (starting at 27wks)
he was born on time and completely healthy 8lbs 9oz

Try not to stress...they are keeping an eye on it

They are making a big deal out of it because it is your baby.
Your OB was spot on with sending you to a MFM.
enjoy being able to see baby every 2 weeks and having a specialist on your case.

That seems a bit on the small side at my 30 week appointment my youngest was weighing a little over 3 lbs.

 it seems small, but ultrasounds can be up to 2lbs off when you are that late. try not to stress

I wouldn't be worried, sounds like you just have a little one. I've never taken much stock in all those measurements, mine have always measured big (supposedly I should've had 9-10lb babies) but they were all small (biggest was 7lbs 12ozs, smallest was 6lbs 10ozs).

My kiddo was 4pounds 15 ounces when she was born I was a high risk for preeclampsia but just go with the flow let them do what they need to do just to make sure you and the baby are fine.
