I am a few days shy of 22 weeks.. has an anatomy scan today... woot woot having a girl! Doctor wants another scan and 4 weeks to check the size of the baby. I'm a little nervous. Has anybody else had this happen to them? All my previous babies have been bigger than normal... with my lastp weighing 10lb 1 oz. Should I be eating more??
I'm having growth scans at the moment, i'm 36 weeks tomorrow, and my bub is measuring up in the 14-20th percentile. My last son was 4lb 14oz at 38 weeks. I am a small framed person normally, so maybe i just have small babies, but i always get gestational diabetes too, which should be giving me bigger babies! I don't know whats going on, but they still tell me bub is in the normal range, when it starts dropping into the 10th percentile, thats when they get concerned. With your bub in the 24th percentile, thats still considered normal, just on the smaller side of normal. At least they will be monitoring bub's progress, and he has heaps of time left to catch up!
Ty for the information. I have gained about 12-15 lbs so far. Hubby satrap I should eat more. I'm trying! I'm ok having a smaller baby. I was just concerned about her health. She's very active in the womb and the ultrasound tech said she weighed 13 oz which is nearly right on when I read articles about pregnancy. I thank you again and God bless you and your little one
