    No idea, but I have a feeling I'll be measuring small at my appointment on Tuesday.

    At 32 weeks I was measuring at 28, and have barely gotten bigger still. Once they determined that baby and I were healthy, doctors didn't seem concerned at all. I wouldn't worry. :) It does feel like baby is taking up all the space in there though, and she's small too!

    at my 28 mw app i measured 26 weeks she said not to be concerned as theres a 3cm gap and also your bump goes through growth spurts too. theres a few ladies on here measuring behind, apparently its not that accurate anyway?? try not to stress

    I have been measuring small all along -at least 2cm behind - had a growth scan at 34+wks and baby is measuring fine -about the 48th centile - so really happy with that - although I dont know how accurate these measurements are!

    Bexie - I am sure I have saw your bump pics recently - and bump certainly doesnt look small!

    I am sure all is well x

    i wouldnt worry hun, there are several of us that are measuring small and have had scans and LO are measuring fine. they let you go 3 cm either way before getting concerrned, and often its just the position LO is laid in.

    I'm measuring 5 weeks behind and I'm just not carrying a lot of water.

    I'm small too. My 28 wk appt on Friday she said I was about 24cm. But this could be because the baby is lying across the way (transverse) and so an accurate measurement is harder to get. By my next appt I hope things are on track.
