I've been thinking about this all weekend and was wondering if anyone has had this happen. The dr. measured my belly and said I was measuring about a week small, 36 weeks when I was 37 weeks (on friday) she wasn't concerned but I am! She said it could be because the baby dropped, but i swear this baby dropped a long time ago so I just don't think that's it. I've been measuring perfectly up until this past appt.

This friday is my last Dr. appt and last day of work, I can't believe June 20th is almost here!

I also think I lost my mucus plug this weekend, I googled pics of it and it's exactly what mine looked like, I know it doesn't mean anything but I'm still hopeful something will happen before the 20th LOL

I never measured small, but I know people that have, it was never an issue. My doc has always told me that if it's more than a couple of weeks off, that is when they might get concerned. If you are worried, maybe call and just talk to the doc or nurse?

You are only a few days away. If you were measuring small at 20 weeks or 30 weeks, your OB would be concerned. Don't stress it! I lost weight the last few weeks of both my pregnancies.

I measured small and Christian measured small for the last 8 week or so of my pregnancy with him. I was super worried but my dr kept telling me all would be ok and when he was born at 38 weeks he weighed 6 lbs 10 oz. So i'm sure your little one is fine in there but I completely understand your worry. I think all my worry is what led to my high blood pressure at the end.

Just try and relax and your little one will be here soon. I know easier said than done.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I was told there is a 3cm margin of error. I measured 2 weeks large for my whole pregnancy, and everyone thought my baby would be ginormous. But she was 56th percentile- just about as average as one can be. If you've been measuring on this whole time, I'm sure everything is fine.
