They say that cm measurements can easily be 2 cm off or so. Also, when the baby drops you measure smaller because they are in the pelvis area and not taking up so much tummy space. So, don't worry, it is not unusual.

L is right about the drs not worrying if you are off a cm or 2. I was measuring 3 cm over my weeks, and they aren't too concerned unless I measure over on my next appt too. Then they might do a quick u/s to review. As far as the kicks go, pick a time during the day when you have noticed that the baby is consistently active. For example, mine is super active at night and quite active in the morning. I try to make sure I count at night. If for some reason I fall asleep or forget, I try in the morning.

I am 36 weeks and only measuring about 32 so they told me they would send me for an ultrasound next week and that i shouldnt worry b/c i am a tiny girl and that sometimes the measurements are a little off.

At 36 wks I measured 33 wks so I went for an u/s. The baby was a little small at 5 lbs 13oz, but still within the normal range. If you're only 1 cm off I'm sure it's OK.
