    Im only measuring 31cm at 37ws...

    3cm either way is nothing to be concerned about, any more then they send you for a growth scan.

    I had my midwife appointment yesterday and I've been worried too.
    I'm measuring small, Im measuring 32wks and Im 34.
    And she cant find out what way he lying so if she cant figure out what way he is at next appointment Im gonna have to have anotha scan to make sure he is the right way and that he is growing ok.

    I hope he ok but I wouldnt mind anotha scan just so I can see him again

    I'd try not to worry too much. I always measured a bit less with my son and he was 8lb 1oz when he was born. This one i'm measuring a bit more, so god knows how big this one will be!!

    My midwife hasn't measured me at all. When I asked her what size she thought he was I was usefully informed he's not a big baby but then again he's not a small baby. Helpful or what!!!!x

    Hon I wouldn't worry too much, 2cm isn't a lot of difference and there is time for it to balance it's self out.

    I was measuring 32 at 35 weeks so I was told he was looking small and sent for a growth scan. Sam was already estimated to be 6lb 10oz at the scan (at about 36 weeks) and was 8lb 13oz when he was born...so they're not always right! x

    I have a personalised growth chart with an average line for tracking fundal height against predicted baby weight. I've been measured twice and fall on it exactly. My measurements have both been about 2cm less than my number of weeks. For me this is exactly what they have predicted.
