Patient : I'm 17 weeks pregnant Wednesday? My baby's head is measuring perfect, good brain development, heart, ect. However, her abdomen is measuring 13-14 weeks. The doctors are wanting to do a amniocentesis to check for dwarfism. But they can not tell me whether or not she'll live outside the womb. Basically, How often are r.'s wrong about this? Is my baby just petite like me? Is she most defiantly a dwarf?
