FTM freak out, reassuring advice needed 😎 It's been a few weeks since my anomaly scan but still really bothering me that the only two measurements we got say 19 + 3 next to both, where the scan was done at 19 + 3 😭 Anyone else had this? Is it normal?! X
I was told it’s totally normal. They expect the measurements to be 2 weeks either side, if they had any concerns they would have told you at the scan. I can’t remember off the top of my head but I’m sure some of my measurements were under and some over my dates. The lady who scanned me said all within the Normal range.
Thanks for that penguin! All she said from what I can see all seems normal and healthy, then I seen the paperwork and was gutted! Here in wales we only get abdo, head and femur length so not a lot to go by! Not too big in the belly area as well so now starting to panic for next midwife app (I never stop panicking it seems!) but he's been moving a lot more last few days, feel him in morning as well as night now 😍 x
Check with your midwife and ask what was your paap-a results which slows down the growth of babies. My measured on monday as 21 wks though I am 22. Midwife can check all this info for you and reassure that all is fine. Don't worry as some babies are tiny, some huge! Like my friend said- you don't want to push out a huuuge baby
Babies naturally vary in size by 20 weeks - that's why dating has to be done at 12 weeks, when the relationship between gestational age and size is a lot tighter.
The measurements are all perfectly normal. It would be weird (and impossible) for all babies to measure precisely average at 20 weeks. 50% of healthy normal babies will measure slightly smaller than that theoretical average, 50% will measure slightly bigger. Your baby happens to be in the slightly smaller 50%. That's all.
