Hi i never posted before i Dont have a computer i get on the net threw my phone but it is very slow. i have a question i have never had a ultrasound at 37 weeks with my other 3 kids i was wondering if it was bad that the baby was measuring 2 weeks behind and only 5lb 13oz how big were your babies at this point?

I will say first of all the majority of the ultrasounds that estimate weight are off. They told me my last baby who was 31 weeks would weigh about 5lbs and she was born at 3lbs 12oz. But with this baby I am sure the measurements are correct. My daughter is measuring a month behind and has always been that way. She was recently diagnosed with IUGR (intrauterine growth restriction). She weighs about 2lbs 15oz now and I am almost 32 weeks along. Has your doctor shown any concern about your baby's weight? If not I wouldn't worry.
