I had my 33 week appointment today, and my doctor says I am measuring small. I have had three ultrasounds so far, and in each one I've measured behind my official due date (12/5)...the latest one was a week behind, and that's where I usually fall. I've never been overly concerned about just a week's difference, but this time, on top of that, I had not gained a single ounce of weight since my last appointment two weeks ago (I've gained 15 pounds so far total). She ordered another ultrasound for two weeks from now to be sure everything is okay. She didn't seem overly concerned...just told me to eat healthy, which I feel like I do. She also said that if I notice a difference in movement to give her a call...she's never mentioned that before. So now I'm concerned that something could be wrong.
For any of you BTDT moms out there...anyone else have a similar experience? I know I shouldn't worry because I was just in the doctor's office this morning and SHE didn't seem worried, but you know how we mothers are! I already worry about being 42 and pregnant and all of the risks associated with that, so this doesn't help. My BP is good, and everything else looked fine. I also feel fine. I guess I just need to slap myself and tell myself not to worry anymore! Just looking for a little reassurance!
Thanks so much!
