Height of Stomach Measures Small?

My sister, in her third trimester, just heard from the doctor that the height of her stomach is measuring small. He wants her to come in for an ultra sound early next week. Anybody know what that might mean? What it might signify?

Re: Height of Stomach Measures Small?

Just to maybe put your mind at ease a little, I just had the exact same ultrasound done today. I measured small, and they were worried that the baby might either be small or there might be a loss of amniotic fluid, but when I went today not only do I have tons of fluid, but the baby weighs an estimated 6 pounds and 3 ounces and I still have 4 weeks left in my pregnancy. The problem with my measurements was that the baby was laying side to side ( from left to right ) across my belly, and it made the measurements come back small. Im sure everything will be fine...Good luck to you and your sister!
