Had ultrasound that showed low BPD, baby in breech position. What now?

Hi, I m currently 28 wks today. Had an u/s Monday and was told hc was normal @ 27w5d but BPD was low @ 25w. Baby is in breech position. Dr. Said she wasn t worried due to all previous blood and scans coming up normal. She thinks this was due to position. Its my 1st baby and I m 37 yrs old. Baby is weighing 2lbs7oz. Could you give me ur input please. I have yo go back in 3wks. Been reading and searching and trying not to dwell but needless to say its inevitable not too. Thank you in advance.

Hi rachelgome,
Thanks for writing in.
I hope you have had earlier ultrasounds in first & second trimesters ( a period of three months) & they all are normal. In a third trimester ( last three months) ultrasound such discrepancies are usually acceptable. Since the HC ( head circumference) is normal I don't think you should be so concerned if every thing else is normal. Your baby's estimated weight is perfectly normal. Having a breech baby at this stage of pregnancy is pretty common & should not be taken as a cause of concern.
I think to relieve your anxiety you may opt to go for a tertiary level ultrasound scan from a consultant sonologist.
Best of luck
