    Hi hun, im only getting scanned because my son had iugr but they dont tend to order a scan unless your 4+ weeks out as fh isnt a very reliable measurement. I wouldnt 'demand' a growth scan, but sure ask about it but my friend who is a mw was the one that told me about the 4+ thing

    It's normal practice to refer you for a scan if you're measuring 3cm or less on a couple of occasions. These measurements aren't accurate and things such as how baby is laying can affect it x

    I have been measuring behind. At 37 I was measuring 34 and my doctor said it was fine. They don't give me numbers anymore, just say I'm measuring fine and baby won't be big.
