    Mine's about the same as yours! I had a scan today and baby is measuring big! S/he's 3.5kg already (I'm 37 weeks tomorrow). I've also got lots of fluid but that's generally par for the course with a big'un!

    The registrar said it's just likely I'm having a big baby. They're retesting me for Gestational diabetes just in case but as I was negative for it at 29 weeks it's unlikely to be positive now. They are testing just in case as although they wont do much about it (too late really), they'll keep a closer eye on us during & post delivery and will ensure I don't go overdue.

    I've got another appointment in a fortnight and I think they may do a sweep at that point to see if it starts me off (eek!)

    Mine have all been about dead on... 30 at 29 +4 and 33 at 32+4. (So no help here.. sorry!) It was funny though at my midwife app on Friday she measured and said something about me looking small and then checked my dates and I was actually a tiny bit over! It's because I'm egg shaped rather than basketball shaped. Everyone thinks I look smaller but baby's just using every bit of spare space all the way up to my boobs it seems! (Proportionally speaking I have shorter legs and a longer torso.. so there's a bit more room up there for her to play with than on average I guess)

    But 42...?! Blimey! I'd want that beast out of me now!! (lol not that your baby is a beast in monster speak.. just in size) :)

    Measuring slightly ahead between 2-4 weeks depending on who measures! Had a growth scan at 32 weeks (last Thurs) and was told that baby had a fat belly (!) measuring at 35 weeks, head and femur bone measuring at 34 weeks. She estimated birth weight at 9-10lbs. Registrar didn't seem overly concerned just told me to keep an eye on fetal movements and contact them right away if anything felt different. He wants to see me every two weeks between now and birth which makes me think I'm in good hands receiving excellent care. People always assume I'm about to drop and seem surprised when I tell them I've just under 2 months left! But it's the health professionals' opinions which matter the most.

    Good luck x

    mines always been 2-4 weeks bigger. so ive had to have regular growth scans. At first they said it was because my due dates might be wrong, then it was becuase he was a big baby and now its because i have a lot of fluid.
