So I went in for my HCG result came back good that baby did not have DS or Trisomy 13 or 18. but the Free beta came back at a 2 the tech said that they like for it to be at a 5 or higher… she said that I will just have to come back to get ultra sounds every month….I am so scared. so my baby is measuring smalli am 13 weeks now I got the ultrasound last week when I was 12 weeks and it was measuring at 9.5 weeks. whcih I thought would be okay being as though I was 12 weeks in gestation and 10 weeks in develpoment. She also said that my baby might have groth problems… I was think that she was just a tech and prob should have not been going into details that that is something that my doctor should have been doing… I dont see the doctor for another two weeks… I am 5’10” and 150lbs a size 3/4 I am 3 months about to satart my 4th month and not showing… no bump and I am very nervous

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!)

Thanks everyone. yes today make 13weeks, I am just so nervous I feel like its consuming my excitement…. My cousin is prgoe too and she was poking at 11weeks… my lil belly is as flast as a pancake and its making me think that my baby isn’t growing based on what the tech said. I will update you all once I hear back from the OB, which I did not receive a call from her so I am think no news is good news.
