    Im just back from my 36 week check up with my midwife, baby hasnt grown according to their measurements in the last 3 weeks, shes booked me into the hospital clinic now on Friday afternoon for growth scan and medical opinion, has anyone else experienced this before in this pregnancy or any previous pregnancy and what was the outcome?
    Apart from that she said the head is well down and engaged now and she feels with my symptoms, back pain, cramps and tummy tightening I may go earlier than my due date.

    I cant give any advice hun but all I can say is the tape measure technique is SOO inaccurate. So try not to worry too much, Im sure bubba is fine.

    And if you do have to go a bit early then thats okay too, you are only a week away from being fully cooked anyway, so try not to worry too much :)

    Keep us updated x

    Yeah I really wouldn't worry too much until they tell you anything definitely. Mine was measuring behind the whole time - then went head down and is measuring ahead so I don't feel tape measure is really all that accurate! X

    Good to be prepared honey but if its the fundus measurement it really is not accurate at all. I was measured on a Mon at 32 then Thurs at 30!!! Scan is most accurate. Hope it goes ok!! Xxx
