Hello, I went for a private scan yesterday and was told that baby is measuring a bit small. I'm 25 weeks pregnant and she's measuring about 23 weeks. Just wondering what the next steps are as I haven't been advised of anything yet? It's more of a wait and see.

Hello, congratulations on your pregnancy. We start measuring the fundal height from 26-28 weeks, not from 25 weeks. Foetal growth scans start from 28 weeks, so it's very early to assess foetal growth with a scan. But if this happens again in the future and baby measures small in your customised chart then you'll be offered another scan.
