Honestly, I'm not sure how accurate measurements are. I remember the last ultrasound with dd they told me she wad 5 1/2 lbs but she was born a week later at just over 5 lbs. So it can definitely be wrong. But... this is a high risk perinatologist with top of the line equipment. I have more faith in the accuracy of his measurements.
I am feeling a little better right now though. I pulled out dd's baby book and saw her head measurements at 6 mnths were in the 10th percentile. I can't find earlier measurements but assume vthey are similar. Even with her being born small, we almost couldn't get her out vaginally. So maybe my anatomy is just made for smaller babies? That's what I'm hoping at least. I still don't think I'll be able to relax until my next ultrasound though.
