Baby Measuring Small For Due Date
Fundal height is 4 weeks more than my due date but baby measuring 2 weeks smaller than my due date, what does this mean?
Little higher: It actually used to be closer to 10%, but with more scheduled inductions and C-sections at around 39 weeks, the actual number has dropped below that 10%. I doubt it has dropped as low as 4% though. I certainly have not seen a number that low yet, but I'm sure it's headed that way. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ultrasound at 32 weeks. Due date was Sept 12th and changed to Sept 10th. Does this mean I conceived earlier or is it based off babies measurements?
Measurements: Your first due date was likely based on your last period or some very early ultrasound measurements. Both are fairly inaccurate. As you progressed, your due date was refined based on later measurements. Remember, though, doctors (like anyone) are not great at predicting the future. Only about 5% of babies are born on their due date. Hope this helps! ...Read more

I found out at 14 weeks that my due date is july 17 i was told at 21 weeks around the same date.Could my due date be a month off if the baby is small?
No.: Your due date was established on your original ultrasound at 14 weeks with great accuracy (+/-7 days). If the fetal growth is poor using that due date, you need to see a maternal-fetal medicine specialist asap to help you figure out why and what (if anything) can be done (genetic, placental, infectious etiologies among others). Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily, avoid all exercise and best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ultrasound dating: First trimester ultrasound is accurate within 5-7 days. Lmp dating also assumes a 28 day cycle. Due date is based on lmp unless us off by more than 1 week 1st trimester or 2 weeks in 2nd. And it's only an estimate; the baby will decide when to come regardless of what you or your doctor think :). ...Read more
My doctor diagnosed me with IUGR but everything looks fine and I've only gained 15 lbs and im 33 weeks ! Am I having a small baby or wrong due date ?
Small baby: The diagnosis of IUGR is not just based on size but its more of the rate that the baby is growing. IF the baby is small, or its rate of growth is slower than expected then the fetus is assumed to have IUGR. There are multiple reasons for IUGR and its important to treat if possible or to be prepared for what the baby may be at risk once born, although most are born without any issue. ...Read more
