32 Weeks pregnant and my fetus is diagnosed with a small stomach

I'm 32 weeks pregnant and I was just told that my fetus's stomach is measuring 2-3 weeks too small. I'm a bit worried about the outcome in all of this and if my babie's stomach will be alright and catch up in size. Does anyone have any info or similar story to share. I would greatly appreciate hearing from anyone who has any information.

I had an ultrasound... hmm.. about 2 weeks ago.. so when i was 32 weeks and my baby's stomach was a little small too but my doctor also told me that its really common when you are about 32 weeks for the doctors to see small stomachs.. and something about they only start to worry if the stomach starts getting smaller and the head starts getting too big or something.. I wouldn't worry too much.. do you have another ultrasound coming up?

I did not have a u/s since 18 weeks but my son (now 1) never took more than 4 oz of formula.  At 6 months he was only taking 3oz at a time where most other babies were taking 8.  My doctor diagnosed him with a small stomach.  He just ate many small meals.  For you this may mean that you are up every hour and a half instead of every 3 hrs.  After 4 months or so it did not affect his sleep at all.  Hopefully yours will have the same outcome as mine because it really meant nothing more than frequent, smaller bottles

There is a great forum where you might want to try to post this question...in Neonatology, and a doctor answers the questions there.
