i didn't think to clarify with the doc, but could baby be in 20th percentile not for weight - but for how long/tall he should be? in which case, is that really a prob? i guess the thing that's bugging me a lil is that he was 30th at 21 wks and now he's 20th. but if the u/s aren't reliable... then.. i suppose, i should relax.. but then, why do they put so much stock in it?
Doctors are trained to look for problems. They will look for a problem even when there may not be a real problem.
but the basic jist they were finding was that while in utero the baby was more proportioned to the size of the gestational mother and that once born (i.e. free from certain room restrictions ) they took on the size characteristics. Obviously not all the details are going to apply to you but I suggest that because that's where I've seen the most studies done on it. Might be worth looking into, especially if you can find it for non-surrogates.
