FTM small baby anxiety(3 Posts)
Sorry to ask but can anyone please advise
Bit of background, I'm 28 + 4, I have a personality disorder, before pregnancy I didn't eat much at all but I am trying my best, since I found out I was pregnant all I do all day is read about baby things I can't shut off and I'm not sleeping.
Went for my 28 week midwife app (had a 4d scan a week earlier where measurements weren't accurate but estimated weight of 2lbs) but when measured by midwife I was on 10th centille estimated 2lb2
How accurate is this? Has any one had the tape measure measurements be wrong before? Girls in work say I have gotten big now and will probably be huge by full term, I thought that was a good sign now I'm so worried he will be tiny xxx

I'm not really sure what the concern is about the baby it's clearly growing. ....i think the bigger issue is your mental health tbh and I think you need to seek help. your baby is smaller than average, but if you lined up 100 children there would still be 9 smaller so not that small. Bump measurements are not that accurate but good for monitoring providing the same person measures each time.
On the 10th is fine. My DS was born on the 2nd percentile! I'm small myself so wasn't a big shock. He's a healthy, happy 15 month old and is on the 25th percentile now.
