All 3 of mine have been “small” babies, first 2 I was allowed to go into labour with naturally.. my son was 5lb 1.. which is only 2nd centile and my daughter was 6lb 8.. not much better at 11th centile. I’m booked in to be induced @ 37wks with this one since she’s estimated below 10th centile.

I wouldn’t worry too much, it’s not usual to go for another scan and them realise it was a mistake or they’re born and nowhere near the efw they thought. And if baby is small, you’ll be fine, just a smaller baby

Little update, there's talks of inducing at 37 weeks as he's still really small! Back again tomorrow for a Doppler scan and then growth the following week, will be 37 weeks the week after that! So we'll see x

My LO was born 40+5 and was 5lb 10oz! She was on the 0% apparently (if that's possible?!) She was fine. I was out of the hospital the same day as delivery. The only issue was breastfeeding for me as I was so anxious about knowing what she was taking each feed. So I ended up bottle feeding. She quickly gained weight, and is now one of the tallest in her class!

Never got any answers as to why, both myself and my husband are tall and broad...

Hey ladies. My LO is still under 10th centile so they're monitoring as I declined induction based on her still seeming happy and moving well. I've a CTG tomorrow and scan Thursday. I've proposed monitoring until 40 weeks and revising then unless baby suggests she's unhappy... From what I can tell, it's her femur length that's coming up small, but it's super hard to measure. Mildly frustrating as it's seemed to have taken homebirth away as an option, but still grateful that they're working with me on it!

Update: I assessed the femur length/abdo circumference/head circumference on my scans and compared to general charts. Only the FL was an issue AND I learned that Royal College of Obs and Gynaes can accept just abdo circumference as an indicator of fetal measurement.

When I went for growth scan #3 I advised the sonographer of the issues we have had and she went for the FL first whilst baby was still (ie before she tried to wriggle away from her head being poked!) and this got a clearer measure which put her on 30th centile!
