Baby measuring very Small at 22 weeks


Has anyone had experience with something like this? At my 2nd trimester scan our little girl measured 19 weeks instead of 22 weeks. She is about 3 weeks behind. She measured normal at the 12 weeks scan so dates are correct. Waiting on amnio results. Doctors say all we can do is hope she grows and continues growing at this pattern. If she falls behind or plateaus it's not a good outcome. Looking for some hope!!

That doesn't seem to me to be too big of a deal, but were the doctors concerned? Those measurements can be so off. My daughter measured in the 50th percentile at each monthly growth scan (she had an umbilical cord issue). Between the 50th and 55th. And when she was born she was nine and a half pounds. I don't trust ultrasound measurements. :-)

3 weeks doesn't seem that much to me. My ds3 was off the chart at my 36 week scan, he was born at 37 weeks 7lbs 8.... They can be really off anyway xxx

My DS was measuring behind by 2 weeks at 21 wk scan and then at subsequent scans, lagging by 2-3 weeks.. he was touted to be an IUGR and we wre prepared for time to be spent in NICU.
Scans had put him at max 5lbs.

Born at 38wks at 6lbs, so not that small and healthy. He came home with us on day 3.

*hugs* that doesn't seem like much to me either. Follow the link in my sig for a happy ending IUGR story. Short version: my son stopped developing at 20 weeks, I had a planned c section at 27 weeks, it was a rough ride but he's a happy 6 yo now

My daughter measured 50% at 20 weeks, and dtopped to 30% by 24. They diagnosed us with IUGR. By the time she was born, she was less than 0%. I had her by emergency c-section (pre-e) at 36w4d. She weighed 3lb 14oz.

She was perfectly healthy, except for her small size. We don't know why she was so small. She's almost 2 years old now, and has caught up to normal. She's actually taller than normal. Her daddy is 6'4", and our doctor says she will be taller than me.
