I haven't been on during my pregnancy with DD #2, but with DD #1 this place was always so helpful that I need some other prego input. Sorry if this gets long.
I am just newly entering third trimester (at 27 wks officially yesterday). I tend to not get too big with my pregnancies at least I didn't with DD #1 and so far with this one haven't either. I just figure it's normal for me! My 19 wk morphology showed my little girl was measuring 8 days smaller which my doc thought was fine and no need to change my 7/4 due date. Yesterday at my OB appt they measured me and said I was measuring 24 instead of 27. So now I have to have a growth scan soon to check on her growth. Has anyone else been this far off? In that last month I went from no belly to a nice round belly and gained a wopping 8 lbs which is abnormal so I know she is growing...but they have me worried or paranoid about her growth. I do not smoke, eat great, and find it hard to believe she went from 8 days behind to suddenly 3 weeks!?! Just looking for similar stories. Again, I was always small with my first DD and always measured small so I shouldn't really think differently, but docs always get your mind going.View Thread
