Is Something Wrong With My Baby

Worried! - April 18

Today I went for my 37wk antenatal check and the doctor told me that my baby was small for dates and has requested a biophysical profile. My last two children both weighed in well over 8pnds. I know that my dates are right. Is there someone out there that can tell me if something is wrong with my baby?

What are you measuring at 37 weeks? That must be scary...what did your doctor say when you asked him what that meant? Did he seem concerned or did he say it was somewhat common?

i am almost in the same boat..just i am 29 weeks along and seen my obstetrician today for the first time...ive already had 2 ultrasounds done one at 15 weeks and another at around 20 weeks,and my doctorss been measuring me till my 28th week and said everything is fine..but now that i have a new ob shes telling me she is concerned about the size and ordered another ultrasound?...god bless you and your baby,...hopefully someone on here can help ease our minds,thanks :)

I am measuring small for my dates too so my OB ordered a weight ultrasound and the baby is fine! Her head is just way down so the measuring is off.

My situation was the opposite. I was always measuring big. I've had 2 additional ultra sounds related to this and both times they said--Well, I guess he's just a big boy. I'd say not to worry but I know you will. When are your tests? Hopefully you won't have to wait too long to find something out. He/she has probably just dropped.
