I just got home from my appointment with my doctor this morning and he finally asked me about my ultrasound. I had it done a few weeks ago and the ultrasound technician was a bit concerned about the baby measuring small and was going to have us come in for a follow up, but ended up calling us back later in the day after having a second look at our file and letting us know that she didn't think we would need a follow up ultrasound but that she did recommend changing the due date to April 21st rather than the 16th. My doctor also seemed concerned that the baby/uterus is measuring small (my fundal height measured 26cm and i'm 30 weeks along) but said that my growth is consistent and symmetrical (both of which i assume are important?)
Even though over all the appointment went well and he agreed that I don't need a follow up ultrasound, he still managed to worry me about the size of this baby.
Here's the thing: my little brother and I were both below 8lbs and late; me by ten days and him by two weeks (when he was induced). Also, I'm pretty tall (5'10") but my husband is a small guy, about 5'6", is it possible i just make small babies? Should I be worried that my baby is only measuring in the 13th percentile?
