Post subject: Growth scan
I'm 30 weeks and 4 days pregnant with our much longed for 1st baby.

I was at my community mw last week who said that baby was measuring small and to get a scan. I managed to get a scan on Wednesday though am terrified in case baby isn't growing properly.

Baby can measure up to 4cm small before they worry. I had one at 35-36week as I was measuring 4cm under, baby was perfectly fine
The method mw's use to measure the baby isn't accurate as it generally depends on how the baby is lying and how the mother carries

I was 5cm too small with Sophie and went off the bottom of the growth charts and a scan showed she was fine. She was 7lbs 15oz so definately not small! Hope your scan goes well today xx
