    Back from my growth scan.. The tech said everything looks good and is functioning, but baby is measuring 2 weeks behind based on her size... She is approximately 5lb8oz, which IMO is not that small considering me and my oh were in the 6lb range...

    However, she said they monitor from now on for fetal distress etc... I will see next week what my Doctor has to say about it.

    Doesn't seem such a small weight, like you said 6lbs is a healthy weight. Hope the doctors can shed some light on things for you

    Ya I think its ok too... The only thing that would be a possible issue was the fluids... Sh told me everything else was ok, except for the fluid measurements..

    Anyone know what their fluid measurements were? I saw mine but I dont know what is normal really...

    Thanks hun, im just paranoid as to why they said that we would have to be monitored for distress!!!

    This is why I hate having techs do the scans and then having to wait until your DR appointment for all the details.
