Aww I am sorry you are going through this! How stressful! I hope you get some good news when you do see the dr, and until then, try not panic! Remember it was just a tech who said that and they may no know what they are talking about.

I’m sorry that you are dealing with this. Has your OB called you to discuss the results yet? Can you call your OB today and talk about this issue? I would try not to worry too much until you talk to your OB and see what it really means and what you can do about it. And don’t worry about not having a bump yet. Everyone grows at a different pace and you are tall so it might take a little longer for baby to show since there’s a lot of room in there.

Is it possible you ovulated later and that is why the baby is measuring small?  Are you certain you are 13 weeks or is that based on LMP?  Thinking good thoughts for you.

Welll my first ultrasound I measured wrong too – I was due July 9th based on my LMP and then the ultrasound said July 20th.  They NEVER once said my baby may be growing wrong.  Everyone ovulates at different times in their cycles.  I am surprised they said that to you!

Since then – I have measured small (fundal height) at many appointments – so the exact opposite!

Its not an exact science unfortunately… They estimate weights at 10 lbs 5 ounces based on ultrasounds and then the baby comes out 8 lbs 2 weeks later…. ( has happened to a couple of the july bees this month!)
