Freaking out!!! Help plz

So I went to the doctors today because they wanted to check his growth because my stomach was measuring small. They said he was head down but his head and stomach are measuring small nd with all the measurements they took they said he is measuring three weeks small so they are sending me to the hospital to do a better ultrasound as they have better equipment to look at him. Then they will do a follow up two weeks after nd if nothing looks different my doctor said I will be induced which I'm not worried about having done. My question is has anyone else gone through this nd everything turned out OK? I just don't want to be induced nd he comes out with issues (God forbid) just need some positive words nd reassurance sorry for long post just wanted to explain everything

Yes! My belly and my daughter measured small.my entire pregnancy i had to go to th dr. 2 times a week for stress test. They ended up inducing me 3 weeks early and my daughter was born 5lbs 1 oz. They were off by a half a pound. She was healthy as could be ! Just really tiny ! Dont worry everything will be fine. The measurments arent exact just estimates !
Thanks that's good to hear just worrying ftm nd all. I hope everything turns out alright. How was your experience with inducement?

I loved it lol most peoole hate it. But i wasnt laying around wondering if i was in labor or making pointless tripsto the hospital. They started the cervadil a few hours later started my meds to get my contractions started. About 2 hrs later i got the epidural which wore off so they gave me more 6 hrs after my contractions started my daughter was born. I had to be in the hospital one extra night since the process of starting takes a few hours. I knew what was coming and what to expecr and i loved that. Wish i was getring induced with this one

So according to the hospitals measurements my little boy weighs 4pounds and 5oz. But he is measuring on the small side but he is growing with the growth charts that they have for him the doctor there just believes he will be a small baby. They are going to monitor me more closely and I'm going back in two weeks again to look at his growth again and starting next week I have to go twice a week to do non stress tests. Doctor also doesn't see anything problems where they would have to induce me. Yayyy!!! I may still experience going into labour naturally. Thank you to all the ladies who responded and gave me positive feedback and told me of their own personal experiences.
