very frustrated with gauge

I am trying a new preemie pattern, and the gauge says 28 stitches and 36 rows equal 4 in. So, what I have done is co the 28 stitches and knit 36 rows and measured. However, I am not getting 4 inches.

Is this the right way to measure gauge? I have tried 3.25, 3.5, and 3.75 (cause they are the only needles I have right now) and I knit the same and it all comes out too short lengthwise (at 3.5 inches--ALL of them!) Is that normal? The width is ok at 4 in, but it is the length that I am having problems with.

Thanks again
