Went for a 4d scan today, 27+3 weeks pregnant. Baby measuring on average apart from stomach which was measuring smaller - in the 5th percentile. Sonographer didn't seem worried but I can't help but feel worried...anyone had this before??

So long as it's within the graph of average then it's okay smile my little one was on the 5th for a few things at 20 weeks ... 4 weeks later she was right in the middle for everything so your lo is probably due a growth spurt and it will catch up with everything else smile

Along the way, different parts of my DD have measured a bit bigger/smaller but then by the next scan have changed. I think different bits tend to grow at different rates, and it takes a while for everything to be in proportion! Try not to worry, baby still has lots more growing time yet smile

I jad this. When I go for m&s scans they just tell me stomach circumference and give me the measurement but when I went for a private 4d scan, they gave me all my measurements and some were bottom percentile and others were above average... I just figured that if there was anything to worry about I'd be told.

No real reassurance to offer except that this happened to me too!
