22 week ultrasound/ 30th percentile

I had my ultrasound. The baby looked good, blood flow good. The MFM said she weighs almost 1lb, that she is about 6 days behind but because my pressures are good and baby looks good he isn't concerned at this time . He said she is in the 30 th percentile. At this point in my last pregnancy, Benjamin was in the 10th percentile and next time in the 7th before he was delivered. I had him at 26 weeks so he wants to see me again in 3 weeks which will put me at 25 weeks to do another ultrasound and check growth and blood flow again. I am happy it was a good appointment, but wondering what your thought are on being in the 30h percentile. I am 5 foot 3 and my husband about 5 foot 9 if this makes a difference, thanks.

You and hubby are on the smaller side, so I don't think 30th percentile is bad :-) I hope your next appointment goes as well and your little girl keeps growing good!! Keeping my fingers crossed for you <3

My MFM doesn't worry until babies get 10th percentile or lower and 30th percentile is still normal. Some babies are just smaller and that is completely normal and healthy. I know it is hard not to worry, and I am giving the advice but I can't really take my own advice :) As long as the little one stays on the same growth curve then I have always been told there is nothing to worry about. My son was in the 10th percentile by about 22 weeks as well and I am coming up on those same weeks in this pregnancy and it is so hard not worry about everything! My MFM always tells me that we are not going to worry until there is something to worry about. It sounds like you are getting great care and I hope your next ultrasound shows a healthy and growing baby :)

My first baby hovered around the 30th percentile and was between 6-9 days behind for much of the pregnancy and didn't drop percentiles (I think the lowest was 13) until my blood pressure started to get very high. If your pressures are normal and the baby has been growing consistently, there is nothing to worry about.

How did your ultrasounds go? Thinking of you, hoping that the baby was at 50% atleast this time!
