Those of you who are measuring big on fundal height, what percentile are you on? I've been measuring over the top line since 28 weeks on the 96th percentile but midwife said as the line is showing steady growth there's no need to go for a scan? I want to go for a scan

Any second, third, fourth (etc) time mums had any 'real' contractions yet? I only say non-first time mums being as we all know what real labour pains feel like (I had no idea what to expect on my first tbh!)

I'm almost certain I had between 3 and 5 real contractions last night... enough to make me want to scrunch myself up & I was moaning/groaning away... Hubby thought it was baby coming! Enough to not be able to speak.
Then bam. I fell asleep... woke up this morning with no pain (except minor BH) so obviously wasn't actual labour.

Definitely wasn't BH. I've had extreme BH's which have almost left me breathless, but it's a totally different kind of contraction pain.

Oooh that must have been a surprise! I remember last time I had some period like pain about 3 nights before the real thing but it was constant pain rather than regular like contractions. I haven't had anything like contractions yet this time.

Yeah, a bit strange to say the least

I get period pain quite often. Midwife says that's probably what my BH feel like as different women can feel different things. Had the same with my daughter so I'm certain they were BH.

This was definitely different, so I guess we shall see what happens!
I'm nearly 33 weeks and he's measured a week ahead ever since 20 week scan (which would put my dates correct in terms of my last period) so technically I would say baby is nearly 34 weeks... so perhaps he'll arrive at just full term!

Who knows!

Hi Laylas,

He is currently 35+4 days and he is measuring 38 weeks at the moment. His head is slightly bigger than the average and his tummy is on the 95th percentile!! They also think he's weighing around 7lb now!! So looking at roughly a 9lb baby xx

Hi all may I join? I'm a FTM expecting a boy due June 24th. I have a feeling I won't make it to my EDD.
I had a scan on Monday and he was weighing in at 6lbs and measuring nearly 38 weeks at 33weeks. I have been told to expect a big boy!

I've been measuring a week behind all way since 25 weeks with the tape measure. I'm hoping this just means she's gonna be slightly smaller but not mean that she's going to be late. I'm sick of being pregnant now and the 3 weeks 4 days I have left till my due date seems like a lifetime...never mind going a week or 2 over

They never tell me my fundal height! Ever. I assume I am normal.

Wow Bumblebee, 7 pounds already?! I would think if he's 7 pounds at 35 weeks he could be bigger than 9 pounds if he goes full term! Thanks for the weight, I will see where I'm at at the next US. BTW...I am actually hoping for a big baby--my first was only 6 pounds, 11 ounces and she did not sleep well for a LONG time. They are suppose to start STTN around or just after 10 pounds.
And if I seem preoccupied with sleep it is because I am!! Lol! I had postpartum depression, mostly linked to no sleep.
