I'm 37 weeks and have been measuring 2-3 weeks behind throughout the pregnancy. My midwife sent me for an ultrasound last week to make sure everything looked ok. The u/s tech told us the baby was 6 lbs 11 oz and the report that was sent to my midwife put her in the 69th percentile. My midwife says this is on the small side but still ok.
I know that ultrasounds this far along are not terribly reliable, but I'm confused. Wouldn't the 69th percentile indicate that the baby is bigger than 68% of other babies at 36 weeks? Am I misunderstanding this?
