Should I worry. Have serial growth scans due to a past stillbirth had my 1st at 28 weeks and all measurments were large (90th or more centile ). Today at 32 weeks The tummy has gone from above the 90th to the 60th mark. Leg has dropped from 60th to 40th and head is the same as 28 week scan. Should I worry ? 20 week scan showed my baby was 50th centile but I don't know if the 20 w Scan means anything in terms of growth? They said to come back in two weeks to 'check ' on the growth. I'm seriously worrying it'll drop again as there 'supposed ' to stay on their centile line

Keep a very close eye on movements and insist on regular dopplers to check blood flow through placenta and cord. I only know due to stillbirth myself as well. Good luck xx

Try not to worry which I know is easier said than done. I had scans from 34 wks as DD2 dropped from the 60th to the 10th between 28-34 wks but ended up being 8lb2oz when she arrived at 40wks.
I'm not sure they use the 20 wk scan measurements but will monitor the trend from you current measurements going forward.
All the best I'm sure things will level themselves out.

Myhandsarekillingme .. Did you have anther scan after the initial drop ? And if so what did the growth look like then? Had it continued to drop?

I have another scan in over a week and I'm panicking so much
