36 weeks

I took this 5 days ago. According to my doctor last Tuesday, I'm measuring small for being 36 weeks, so she scheduled an ultrasound follow up. I have that next Monday, and I'm working really hard at not letting myself worry about it. I keep reminding myself how much the baby moves and how strong its movements are, and I tell myself that I'm probably just going to have a small baby, which is a good thing because that makes the labor a little easier!! Still, a little part of me is anxious, wondering if there's something wrong with Sweetie Pie that is causing it to be small. All I can do is pray while I wait, though!

Well he's probably just small because you've got such a small frame! I mean, looking at that picture - how much bigger could the belly be and not make you fall over?? You look adorable. I hope everything comes out peachy keen at your next appointment!

The same thing happened to me when I went to my 36 week appointment; baby was measuring small. They ended up inducing me at 38 weeks b/c of it and the baby was 5lb. 9oz./18.5 inches long. Everything went fine though; baby was good, just not getting any bigger for some reason. Good luck with it b/c small baby did not equal easier labor.

Oh my goodness, you look amazing. I'm sure you're freaking out a bit, but try not to worry. Best of luck and keep us posted.

I can't wait until you have your sweet baby.

It might just mean your due date is wrong. You're so tiny I'm sure your baby will be too (in a good way). Let us know how it goes!

I will pray that everything is fine with Sweetie Pie. I'm sure it is. After all, you are itty-bitty yourself and who knows, maybe your due date is wrong. Keep us posted!

hope everything is going okay! I agree with the girls above -- it could be any number of things, but it's great that the baby is moving so much. You look wonderful!
