    Had by 28wk apt today at midwife and she said im measuring small for dates, below the line.
    Anyone had this?
    She said it could be that my graph is 4 days out with dates but got to book in again to check in 2 weeks. But also the baby felt fine, head was down and heart beat was ok, just monitor the movement.
    I said baby moves alot so she said all is prob ok but anyone measuring small too?

    Now my b*tch of a colleague said its cause i dont eat, so just jumped down her throat. I do eat and im just naturally skinny, i also excersise to keep fit. Sorry just wound me up. the cow. I sit here and eat all day!!!

    I agree with Kimbo. I was measuring small too - but when I was scanned, the baby was bang on average :roll: It depends on the position of the baby.

    Don't take any notice of the doughnut in work either :shakehead: :hug:

    I've measured small all the way through and have had a growth scan about 5 weeks ago and my baby is fine. Nothing wrong with her size just on the smaller size of normal. I wouldn't pay any attention to them. Measuring with a tape measure seems to be such a dated thing to do. Don't get yourself worried about it hun everyones different :hug: xxxxx

    Im 40+1 and they have been saying it to me since I was around 30 weeks. Bloody nuisance these fundal measurements! And they only decided to send me for a growth scan last week when im ready to drop! Talk about ridiculous! Anyways, i went and all was fine and although my bump isnt huge the midwife told me the baby was around 7 pounds then so just proves it could be the way the baby is lying, etc, or just on your build. I wouldnt worry too much but try telling that to a pregnant woman! :)
