    So had the midwife today and fundal height was only 31cm, I have a growth scan tomorrow which was already booked anyway but midwife said she would of sent me for one otherwise.
    Hope my baby girl is okay!

    Try not to worry hun, my FH measures 5 weeks behind! But growth scan showed all ok. I was told its because I have a long torso so bubs has more room. Are you tallish? xx

    they always say 2 centimetres either way is the norm so your only really about 1 centimetre out and that could be just the way baby was laying at the time they are so not accurate some midwifes dont even bother doing them anymore so try not to worry too much and good luck at the scan x

    My fundal height at 38 weeks (and 4 days!) was only 31cm! Was sent for a couple of growth/fluid scans and I'm carrying a slightly smaller baby and lower than average fluid. But all is well and she's growing well half lb per week!!

    I can understand how worried you are though, but it's not too behind really!! :hugs:
