Re: Does anyone have experience with baby's head measuring small?

I learned a while ago not to listen to anyone doing an ultrasound that isn't a specialist or someone who knows what they are talking about. Even then they can be off. My OB doesn't do ultrasounds though for this very reason. Anything that may seem "off" on them goes to the peri, so she has all ultrasounds done at the peri to reduce the stress.

I don't know if that is much help but I have had ultrasounds wrong on SEVERAL occasions (I think the funniest one was when a resident did an ultrasound of my son the day of my scheduled c-section and couldn't find his head. She went running out of the room thinking that I got to 38 weeks without a baby's head! He was breach. ).

Good luck and I hope it is nothing in the end. How long of a wait do you have for the peri?
