Re: Measuring Small?

I measured fine until 30 weeks at which point I started to measure small. This got me a ton of fetal non-stress tests, biophysical profiles, etc. (8+) I pretty much got to see my DD every week or so. They had me freaked out that she was sufferring from intra uterine growth restriction, but as it turns out, I was just small. It happens. Some Mama's just don't get that big. DD was born at 39w 4day weighing 6lbs 3 oz and 19 inches long. They had me scared she would be 4 lbs or less.
As long as she is continuing to have some growth, I would tell her not to worry. I am 25 weeks 5 days with DD #2 and I am already measuring a little small. I am sure this LO will just be a peanut too.
Tell her to be calm, take care of herself and listen to her body. It will be ok!
