You could be off in your dates, or your baby is just small for gestation. I know that for all of my babies they have measured small by U/S dating in the first trimester! I just seem to grow them small at first, but they've all been full term 39+ a few days gestation and good 7-low 8 lb weights. Drs. will say that U/S dating done early will date the pg very accurately, but it hasn't been the case with all 4 of my babies. I would have had to have gotten a positive pg test at just days past ovulation according to the dating of the pg! Oh, and all of my babies have shown signs of being overdue at birth!

I can't eat any sugar while pg (first pg symptom has always been extreme sugar aversion) and I've always wondered if that has an effect on their first trimester development.

I hope your U/S goes really well and you have a healthy little one growing in there!
