Well...with my daughter i gained 10lbs . (But off course my hipe extended, and stayed that way, so i coudnt put my old jeans) and with my son i gained 15lbs. And with this pregnancy, iam 9weeks and losing weight. I have always tried to eat the best i could (even with my nausea's) and its just how my body was. But both my kids were born 6lbs/9ounce & 6lbs/11ounce. when you worry about things like that you should always talk to your Dr.

My dad, who ended up 5'10" was born 6 lbs, 2 oz. My dh considers me "taller than adverage" at 5'6" and I was 6 lbs, 4 oz. I am hoping for a 7 pounder for my first time, lol! I know that birth weight has nothing to do with how big you end up and more to do with how your uterus handles the stretching. That's why different body types/second and third babies tend to be bigger. I know I would be happy with a smaller baby! :)

You need to ask your doctor why your baby is measuring 4 weeks too small!!! Do you have high blood pressure? Are you off on your due date; maybe you concieved later than you thought.? best to you!

Do you smoke? Smoking can cause low birth weight. Maybe the doctor miscalulated your due date

you could just be having a small baby. That is common. my family had small babys and didnt smoke, my mother had my sister at her due date and she was 5lbs 4oz. and i was 3 weeks early and i was 4lbs. 5oz, im sure everything will be fine, but if worried ask your doctor. good luck

i had a small baby, its normal, if ur not big and ya partners not big then u wont have a big balloon, mine is a big balloon now but was born 6 pound 2, the whole pregnancy i was small, dont worry its normal, u see how they dont stay small for long when they arrive
