Did he do an ultrasound? or feel your uterus? It sounds like he felt your uterus and it feels small for 17 weeks. That is pretty common. It probably means that your dates are a little off and maybe you aren't quite as far along as he first thought. I would call him and ask him or the nurse to explain it to you. You have a right to ask any question you please. You shouldn't leave that office feeling worried about anything. Tell him you are worried and to please explain it to you.

you are either not as far along as you thought. or your baby could just be small. jsut like adults come in different sizes.
