Jun. 2, 2008 at 9:55 AM when I was pregnant with my daughter, my OB/GYN kept telling me I/baby seemed small. I didn't show at all until at least four months. but she said some people have small babies, i was tiny, etc. she kept saying she was thinking of sending me for an ultrasound, but didn't until three weeks before i was due. at the time the doctor told me that she was 4 lb 4 oz, her heart was fading in and out, and the placenta wasn't functioning right. my labor was induced the next day, and there was a point when her heart rate dipped down into the low 80s - half of what it should be. she ended up being 5 lb even and healthy, but it was a scare. i don't know if anything could have been done differently. follow your instincts and see if you can get an ultrasound and find out anything. caution certainly doesn't hurt.
