22weeks - small baby. Should i worry?


Hi,
It's me again. I have next problem ( only me, not my doctor) with my small babygirl. She has been always measured 3-4 days behind at crl. I had anomaly scan at 20weeks, everything lookes good. I had another scan yesterday ( i have scans very often because i'm worried after first pregnancy loss) and my baby weight is only 410grams - she is in 25% for weight. 6 days behind by lmp. Her tummy is spot on, but her head and legs are one week behind. My doctor isn't worried at all and said that i'm tiny and small and my baby will be the same. But I'm worried that something is wrong. She is still growing, two weeks ago she weighted 280grams, but I'm sad. Sorry for my english, i'm from Poland. Should I be worried?

Honestly it doesn’t sound like anything you should worry about to me. You are probably just nervous because of past experience. Trust your dr

Small baby is not a problem for me:-) and my doctor isn't concerned. But I read some posts and other doctors were concerned when babies were only for example week-2 weeks behind and talked about some anomalies or iugr. Google is an evil.

No babies come in all shapes and sizes. At 16 weeks my girl measured a few days ahead for legs and a week behind for abdomen and head so long legged but petite haha.

25th Centile is definitely fine. All babies need to form somewhere on that line. It will be impacted by parents size and shape. My 1st daughter was born full term on the 25th centile 6lb 15oz.

Anyone else? I'm still very worried for me one week behind doesn't sound much but I looked for dr Google ( my mistake) and I read horribke stories- microcephaly, short femurs means Down syndrome. I'm scared that something is wrong

Definitely nothing to be worried about. Measuring a few days behind is perfectly okay! If she was weeks behind then it would be concerning.

Thanks. I think I'm paranoid. After miscarriage it's hard for me to believe that I can have healthy baby and I'm worried about everything which is not average. And google doesn't help!

I wouldn't worry at all. My daughter has been under the 10 percentile her whole life and now she is almost 3. It's more if they stay on the curve and continue to grow. Also those scans are only ESTIMATES. I had scans biweekly with my twins and was told they would be under 5 pounds. I had them at 36 weeks....a full month early, and they were 6.8 and 6.13 pounds! As long as baby is growing don't worry
