    Hi all, I am pregnant with my first child. I went for my 20 week scan a couple of weeks ago and they said everything was great apart from that the baby was weighing a bit below average.

    I went for a follow up scan on Tuesday (22+6) and they said that the baby's head circumference is a bit below average. I have now been referred to the Fetal Medicine Unit and I am there next Tuesday.

    On the 22+6 scan, head circumference is 187mm (below the 5th centile) and the EWF was showing as just below the 7.5centile). The baby's head circumference had actually grown 2cm since the scan 2 weeks earlier. Further to this, brain development is spot on as is head shape etc.

    Is anybody else in the same boat? I am sick with worry and its all so stressful!

    Any replies would be appreciated.

    Thank you, Ruby x
