Measuring Ahead


I've just come back from my 28 week appointment and I'm measuring 31 weeks already! I've got to have a growth scan in 2 weeks to make sure Molly isn't getting to big.

So I guess its good that I get to have another scan but yikes at measuring 3 weeks ahead!!

Anyone else measured large but not had a mahoosive baby?

All babies grow differently, some get bigger before others do

I went from measuring 3 weeks ahead.... to 3 weeks under. Everything is fine It's only an approximate measurement.. as you could have more or less fluid... babes position means alot too.

Have fun seeing bubs again on your growth scan

Hi,

I measured big for the whole 3rd tri... and by 33 weeks, I was measuring 5 weeks ahead (so was measuring as 38 weeks) and stayed 5 weeks ahead right to the end, ie at 37 wks was measuring 42 weeks!!

My MW referred me to see a consultant at the hospital as soon as I started to measure big, but when I went to see them they said they don't bother doing growth scans for potentially big babies as they are not accurate enough!! That's Birmingham for you!!!

I went into labour naturally at 39 weeks and gave birth to Morgan weighing 7lb 8oz! Was quite a shock, as according to my growth chart and my measurements, I was on target for a 10lb baby!!!!

So, from my experience, I would say don't read too much into the measurements!!

Ahh, thanks girls. It would seem by reading various stuff on the net that being 3 weeks ahead isn't that big a deal so I'm just gonna enjoy getting another scan!

hey hun I had my 34 week appointment and Im measuring huge too but it isnt very accurate they way its done so the midwife told me Im only 5'o ft and have a very very short torso so I look like a beachball babys head is engaged but you wouldnt know it. it hasnt allowed for any extra space for breathing or eating boo hoo and that baby is at least going to be 8lbs or more ouch take care hun and keep us updated

Hi there! I was measuring about 2 weeks ahead at one appointment - but at my last I was only measuring about 5 days ahead!! Babies grow at different rates so I wouldn't be too concerned
