    i had my 25 week midwife appointment today and she did the measurment thing from the top of the bump to the pelvic bone and it measured small, it didnt touch the 1st curve on my graph thing so she is sending me for a scan next Wednesday.

    Has anyone else had this happen? if so was everything ok? I am really worried now, i knew i was small as people cant even tell i am pregnant if they dont know me but now i am a bit concerned :cry:

    I can't help you but do you have a pic to show your size? What do they actually measure on the outside as when I'm led down I can feel my hard uterus and it only comes up to my belly button but have looked it up on the net and I think it should be higher than that by now! Is that what they done with you?

    its not a big thing now as there is plenty of time to bulk baby up so to speak lol and baby might just be lying in a position that makes you smaller.

    my problem is i measure exactly on dates or a week behind but still have Big babies lol they didnt growth scan me in either of the boys pregnancys and they both arrived big 9lb 10oz and 10lb 12oz , lol im demanding growth scans even if i dont measure big i need to know if this one is likely to be bigger lol

    I am sure everything is perfectly fine.

    Had scan at 34wks and they did s baby was not going to be huge.

    Anna was born at 39 weeks and 6 lb 15 oz so certainly not tiny! I was always told my bump was tiny throughout my pregnancy.

    This is my 2nd baby now and I have a little bump coming on already....well, it is a shy bump - it only comes out at night:haha: (bloat!)

    aw thats great, she was definately a good weight, perfect i think!

    I definately started to get a bump quite early on and i thought it would grow fast but it slowed right down, might have another growth spurt soon :thumbup:

    mine does look bigger at night too but think i swell with a bit of water by the evening i can feel it in my legs!

    I measured small with my first, not through tummy meaurements, through the actual size of baby on a scan, I have heart probs and they thought my heart was not pumping blood through the placenta properly, they scanned me every week then for last 2 weeks daily. They told me to expect a baby at 5lbs but she was born 6lbs1 and was perfectly healthy.

    Oh and I never even got a slight bump until I was 6 months on with my first.

    Did you get a bump with your first?
