Q&A: Ultrasound Accuracy


“I’m 32 weeks pregnant and baby is measuring small. My OB first noticed at 28 weeks when my fundus height was measuring 3 weeks behind. Long story short, many ultrasounds have been done since then and NSTs have been started. My doctor is saying if baby doesn’t grow enough in the next two weeks, it might be better to deliver. My question is, how accurate are ultrasounds when it comes to measuring size and what would the risks be for delivering 5 weeks early?” – Hannah
