Re: Measuring Small?

I measured small starting around 16-18 weeks, but DD was IUGR, so we had a reason. By the time she was born, I was 41 1/2 weeks measuring 34 weeks or something like that. Like several PP have pointed out, it can vary based on who does the measurement, the baby's position, etc., even the position of the mother's uterus makes a difference. If she has a retroverted (tilted) uterus, she'll measure small. She's still within the averages, so I wouldn't worry about it.
