I really don't know anything at all, but am thinking that they would need to check her again fairly soon to see if the baby was growing ok. Maybe it will always be a small baby. Hopefully the heartbeat and blood flow all appeared fine? Hope there is someone around who can help. Is dd doing ok with her cast?
Could - and probably does - mean absolutely zilch. At one point (can't remember when exactly) I was told my baby was small for dates and was v worried ...she's now 12 weeks (today!), bursting with health and around the 91st centile! The foetus is so weeny at this stage a tiny error in scanning can seem to make a huge difference.
Seems strange to have measured the sac to date the pregnancy - at 12 weeks it is the fetus that is measured for gestation. Your friend may have not picked the sonographer up properly. If the baby seems small it may be that the dates are not tallying up with the scan at this stage.
I would not expect that there would be anything wrong with the baby. Has she been given a date for a rescan to confirm gestation of pregnancy? If not, then the sonographer has no concerns. HTH.
dont know tbh mears, friend was upset as their words were...the sac looks the correct size but the baby looks small in comparison, can the sac be all different sizes then? does the size of that not really matter?
when my SIL had a missed miscarriage, the sac was the right size for a 12 week pregnancy but the foetus inside was just a bunch of cells in the corner. So in comparison the sac was bigger and because it had carried on growing her body was holding on to the pregnancy. I do think there could be something in this, but I don't know what. If your friend is worried I would get her to book another scan appt, if they haven't done so already.
