I think size can depend on lots of factors apart from baby size, including length of the upper body, how toned the stomach muscles are, babies position, body shape, how compactly your carrying etc etc, but I imagine fluid can also be a factor as I've heard of there being sometimes too little fluid toward the end of pregnancy which needs to be monitored. I think there can be quite a variance in normal fluid levels but your midwife would refer the growth scan if she thought there was a chance that there could be something out of the ordinaryx
I assume fluid levels differ. As you know I have a large bump but Baby H is measuring just fine and my fluid levels are normal. If I recall correctly, you're short too? My sonographer said yesterday it is very common for shorter women to have larger than 'normal' bumps and for everything to be fine.
I have a lot of fluid although they still call it normal, buit in the higher level of normal. I have a sall bump and a large baby. My baby measures term and was 7lb a week by scan. My fundal height is 40 weeks as well.But we all carry different, all baby lay different , fluid can be different.
I have more than average fluid, and my notes say 'Polyhydramnios' which basically means too much amniotic fluid. I do have gest diabetes though, and this can cause the high levels of fluid. It just means I am high risk of going into prem labour. At my last growth scan at 32 weeks, Bubs measured 5lb 1oz. Got another growth scan on Tuesday, so will see what the difference is then.
