She was 5lb 12oz at 34w 2d
My DD was 3lb at the same point, but she was tiny. This one was 2lb 6oz at 28 weeks. The scans do have a margin of error, sometimes they are a pound or so smaller. I'm hoping she is littler for you.
Had a growth scan yesterday, baby is 4lbs and consultant is happy. I'm a bit worried as I noticed on the growth chart when I got home that the head circumference has gone from 75th centile, to under 50th, to 35th at this scan. The doctor didn't mention so hoping it is OK. The femur length and abdominal circumference haven't dropped down the centiles.
I guess it's always somewhat encouraging if they weren't alarmed, although I think I would be putting in a message to my doctor just to ask about it for reassurance.
I will be 36 weeks tomorrow. If this was my pregnancy with my son, I would be giving birth tomorrow. Makes me realize how close I am to delivery!
Oh wow, 36 weeks!
I looked at the chart again, it doesn't look as bad. The femur length and abdominal circumference have also bounced around a little bit. I'm going to ask the midwife at the next appointment.
Do you mind if I join? I’m only about 4.5 weeks. I’m going out my mind. This is my 5th pregnancy - 3 early miscarriages (before 8 weeks) and then my last 14 months ago when I was about 5 month pregnant. We’ve been trying 6 years. I’m just not coping, keep convincing myself it’s all over. Symptoms are coming and going which isn’t helping. How do I get through? Xx
Welcome red_head, I'm so sorry for your losses, and over such a long time. Under 5 weeks is early and the symptoms can be patchy, mine were this time. Wishing you lots of luck. It is the hardest thing to cope with, I found it so difficult. Do you have anyone close to you who is supportive?
I asked the hospital about the scan, they said it's because he's head down - the measurements are lower than breech as the head is squashed, and it's harder to get an accurate measurement.
How is everyone getting on?
Thanks blueblue. We aren’t telling anyone we’re pregnant yet so no one to talk to. I just don’t know how to cope. I think this is making me realise that if this isn’t the one, I can’t ever do this again xx
Hi Redhead - I struggled with symptoms coming and going, too. It would make me lose hope and then the next day I'd be sick again. It's hard to not worry! Take it a day at a time and try to find something outside of this pregnancy to do that will keep you busy and interested. It always helps me.
Blue - that's good to hear! How far along are you now?
The symptoms can be patchy and that is hard to deal with. It's very hard emotionally, feels like a rollercoaster. Sending you lots of luck. Do you have other things to focus on? It can help.
I'm 32 weeks now.
Popping in to say hello ladies.
Remember they thought Margot was really big but they were totally wrong. She just had her 4 month appointment and she is about 15th percentile in everything except her 94th percentile head! I think those big brains threw all of the ultrasound estimates way off.
She was born 7lbs 2 oz, and she is now 12 lbs, 7 oz.
Marple - she's a doll!
Hi Redhead! I have been a total basket case during this and my last pregnancies. Just try to take it day by day and know that symptoms come and go and don’t always mean the worst. Sending you a hug.
Marple!!!!! She’s darling!
Jules, you’re SO close!
Blue, you’re almost there as well!
I’m 23 weeks now. Finally quit puking as much lol. Still super exhausted. But excited to be over halfway!
TTC - good to hear from you! Glad you are feeling a bit better. Are you staying team yellow?
Thank you Jules!!!!! I can’t believe I forgot to announce here but I’m having my FOURTH baby BOY! Over the moon and more than anything I feel so relieved and grateful that the anatomy scan looked good and all genetic testing came back normal.
