My due date is supposed to be June 7th. I just had an ultrasound yesterday and they informed me that my son is measuring 3 weeks behind in growth. (He has been three weeks behind the entire pregnancy as well.) They did not change my due date, which confuses me slightly, but they didn't seem all that bothered by it. I've been very small throughout my entire pregnancy, I've only gained 5 pounds the entire time, and my little boy is only 4 lbs. 3 oz. so far. I know they gain weight like crazy during the last few weeks, but am I right to be nervous or is this all just pre baby jitters?? Am I going to have a midget baby??!!

May. 7, 2008 at 11:26 PM I am surprised they have not changed your due date if it has been that way from the start.  I was small for all three of my pregnancies.  My last son had IUGR (inter uterine growth restriction) but because of my blood pressure it was not caught until the end. He was born early (growth wise he was 33 weeks) he is healthy today, he a bit small.  If they are watching it I would not worry.  He might just be a little baby :) but he will grow like a weed soon enough.  :) Sending you happy healthy pregnancy vibes.
