Please keep me in your thoughts . . .

I had my 36 week appointment today and I only gained one cm from last time (I'm at 33 now and I was at 32 at my 34w checkup).

Heartrate was 150. I'm feeling movement and everything.

Because I'm still measuring small and only gained 1 cm, she did order an ultrasound for 2:30 today. She said she's not worried, but wants to make sure it's not low amniotic fluid, or a problem with fetal growth. She said it could just be a small baby. Her official diagnosis was "small for gestational age".

I am nervous, but I think everything is okay. I'll probably have to go by myself because DH is home with Andrew and there's nobody to watch him. I'm going to call my mom now and see if she can get my sister to fill in for her at work and see if she can meet me there (they work at the same place).

I hope this is nothing serious! :(

Hoping your baby girl is just a dainty one! Good luck!

I'll be thinking of you. The same thing happened to me when I was pregnant with Sam. He was measuring small, fluid was good, they just said he would be a small baby. Turned out he was an average sized baby and surprised everyone. :)
