Baby under the tenth centile on growth chart...

Hi Ladies. I had an ultrasound at the hospital a few days ago and I was told my baby's growth is under the tenth centile. I am currently 29 weeks and first time mom. The doctors said they will be monitoring the baby via ultrasounds 3 times per week. I was wondering if anyone else has been through this, either during this pregnancy or any previous pregnancies? I am very worried about it all, as the baby also has reduced movements also. Please advise...

I Googled tenth centile baby's growth and there's a lot that came up. Have you tried reading through? Sorry this is the first time I've heard of it. I have two boys and expecting a baby girl on the 25th of July. Good luck.

Hi im in the same situation. They found i only had a 2 vessel umbilical cord at 22 weeks so was being scanned every 4 weeks. At 32 weeks they said bubs weight was below 5th centile so they asked if i wanted an amniocentis to check for any chromosonal abnormalities. I went ahead so i could be prepared if anything was wrong. All results came back as clear so im now having scans every 2 weeks. Im currently 35 weeks and although bubs weight is still below 5th centile the docs say as the weight is going up consistently they gonna let me carry on. Aslong as the baby is putting on weight then everything will be fine, its good they are checking you regularly. Good luck xx

My baby is measuring small they noticed this at 34 weeks. Did an ultrasound scam at 35 week and he measured small so they gave me steroid injections to develop baby's lungs. Had to keep going back for scans everyother day and heartbeat monitoring on the days had no scan. I'm now in hospital  being induced at 37 weeks good luck mummy to be xx
