Clare, try not to worry too much. With mine, I measured 30 at 32 weeks, 31cm at 35 weeks and only 32 at 36 weeks. I went for an US, and everything was fine, he was born a week early at 7 lb 10oz, 19inches long., so average size baby for a week early. I worried too, but when you think of it, they could change position, fluid is decreasing. At least you will get to see your baby again! I loved that part. We only get one US here, unless there is a reason to do more! Good luck.

Hi Clare - Please let us know how your scan goes on Wednesday. I'm sure all is fine!

Clare-I wouldn't freak out. I was measuring 35 weeks along at 33 weeks. then at 35 weeks I was still measuring 35 weeks. Then at 37 weeks still measuring 35 weeks. How far along are you? The baby could have dropped which will make you measure less. My doc is not one big concerned because she said its normal to slow down because fluid levels taper off, etc. Whats wrong with a small baby if its healthy? I had a 5 lb 12 baby girl my first time and she was absolutely perfect and healthy. I gained the recommended 30 lbs and didn't smoke or drink and ate good. I wouldn't worry.
