Hi everyone.
I seem to have got myself in a bit of a panic over my 20 week scan. Nothing was said about anything off but I'm worried about head and abdominal measurements. They are
HC 167.7mm
AC 137.7mm
I looked on Google (I know i know!) And these seem really small compaired to others. This will be my 3rd child and I can't remember the measurements of my other two. Would anyone be willing to share their 20 week measurements or offer reassurance. I've tried contacting my midwife buto i can't get hold of her. Thanks ☺

I had a quick flick at my antenatal notes - do you have yours? In mine, there are growth charts and looking at your gestation and measurements it looks fine. Both above 10th but under 50th centile line, so very average! That coupled with the fact that the sonographer had no concerns, I would say you can relax! They would have said something/given extra scans if they were worried in any way. smile hope that helps!

The crosses for both measurements are between the bottom and middle line. I literally had my midwife get back to me about an hour ago to say what you have just said!! I just worry so much and I know i shouldn't! Thank you for checking for me though. I'm going to try and relax a little now although I'm tempted to pay for a growth scan in a few weeks just to see how things are going..!!!

Glad you are a bit reassured now! It's completely normal to worry about all sorts of things but hopefully you'll be able to put your mind at ease a bit now! Honestly, all babies have to come somewhere on the chart, your measurements are absolutely fine, and hope all goes well from here on smile

I just wish I had my other two kids notes to hand! The worrying doesn't get better it gets worse! In my case it does..my poor dh and what he has to put up with from me! Thanks again!
