measuring behind

At 36.week check up was one week behind now at week 38 she is two weeks behind. Dr says just a small baby, but I am worried. What if there is something wrong with her?

I'm sure the baby is fine if the dr was really concern he would seen you for a ultrasound. I had that same scare and had a ultrasound and the baby was measuring in the 50th percentile. Good luck

I'm also measuring 3/4 weeks behind and was also worried. I had an ultrasound last week and thankfully everything is fine with my baby girl. She is a good size. The midwife's don't tend to worry unless you are over or under by at least 3 weeks.

Yeah I'm having same issues. Had so much ultrasounds but everything looks good. Don't worry to much about it

Baby will be fine. Ive always measured a little small, but the kids actually came out totally fine, just not so big. Makes for a great delivery, btw! You have to figure at this point, baby is a full human being and will grow in spurts just like the rest of us.

My doctor told me there is a +/- 2 range in measurement.
