    Normally if you are more then 3 weeks under they will say something... Did your doctor not say anything to you. I would have thought they would have done a scan as that is more accurate then fundal height measures... or was it a scan that said you were behind?

    Hiya I was told last week by my mw that +/- 3cm range is considered normal. I would guess then that as your midwife didn't say anything she's not overly concerned. I think they probably will wait til your next appointment where your baby will probably have caught up - otherwise they may scan you again. Also it could be the way baby was lying when she measure you :hugs:

    2cm ether way is classed as normal hun! but i think if ur mw was worried she would have sent u for a scan! perhaps shes waiting to see what u measure next time!

    hope this helps

    I wouldnt worry hun i was also measuring about 3 weeks behind, and my Dr didnt send me for an ultrasound but then about a week ago i ended up in the hospital for spotting and cramping and they did an ultrasound and i was measuring by ultrasound right on target . Good luck .

    sending hugs your way :hugs::hugs::hugs:
