Baby measuring 4 weeks behind? mamato6 vba4c successful Phoenix, Arizona 10644 posts

I found out Thursday that while my uterus is measuring exactly for how far along I am, my daughter is not. I am 29 weeks and 2 days and Torance is measuring at tiny 25 weeks and 1 day. She weighs an estimated 1lb 7oz. I had a biophysical ultrasound done and everything looked good (placenta, cord, her heart). The doctor can't find a cause for her growth. I was told that babies lower than the 10th percentile are diagnosed with IUGR in the third trimester... she's in the 1 percentile :( Anyone else had their baby be so far behind in weight and size and still be ok?? And if your baby had IUGR how small were they?

Did your other girls measure on target?

How big were the other ones when they were born?

They told me that my 1st son would be about 6 lbs when he was born. They said he was little... he came out to be 8 lb 12 oz and was 5 days early...

I'm not sure about the percentiles but when I was 35 wks with my duaghter I was measuring 2 cm behind for fundal height so they did a biophysical as well and found that she was measuring at 32wks. No one was worried tho cuz everything looked healthy and normal. She had a growth spurt at 36wks and was born weighing 7lbs 14oz at 38wks. I think some babies just decided to grow slower. Despite her weight tho she did have some complications usually associated with being preemie (apnea, reflux, trouble nursing, jaundice, slow weight gain) so I'm wondering if maybe she was just growing slower and wasn't yet her development size for term (if that makes sense). She only deals with the reflux now and otherwise completely fine since about 3mos.
