We wen back yesterday and the measurements changed to 283 and 77 respectively which are 3 weeks behind schedule. To be considered small but normal we need a diameter of at least 80 she a circumference of 300. We are going in for a fetal MRI on Monday to determine if the baby's brain is damaged. Has anyone ou there had something lie this happen? We are terrified of what the MRI will reveal. My husband she I feared sol the genetic hurdles and the pregnancy has been uneventful. The circumference is 3.5 standard deviations away from the mean which according to the literature bodes for a horrific outcome. Can someone please share their outcome in a similar situation? Thank you!!!
read my post above, our daughter always showed a small HC and she came out HC 32cm (4th centile) and is fine, you say that your HC is 283mm on week 34? that means that he/she has 6+ weeks to only grow 4 extra cm to be 32cm.
283 at 34 weeks isnt that small, ours was smaller!
what were the FL and AC?
