Well, the whole point of centiles is that some babies have to be in the lower centiles. There has to be a smallest and biggest baby burn at some point.
It's a bell curve.

Plus as long as growth is continuing, it's fine.

Oh for goodness sake.. both words with centi in meant to be centile

My baby followed the 9th centimetres curve for growth scans and after she was born. Healthy 10 month old now, no issues, still following 9th centipede curve.

I’m just over 31 weeks pregnant. I had a scan today to check my waters as they were potentially low. Thankfully all was fine regarding that. However, my baby is apparently weighing/measuring small. So I’ve been told I will have a growth scan in 2 weeks to monitor this. The baby is apparently just below the 10th percentile.
My first baby was the complete opposite and was on the 95th! So today’s news came as a shock and a worry!!
Has anyone else got some similar experiences they can share with me please? I’m really worried and just hope my baby is ok as I’ve read a few things online linking this sort of thing to stillbirth and cerebral palsy etc, which has totally freaked me out! sad
