    Though LO was measuring behind for the first few weeks after my BFP, he is now measuring ahead. His weight was in the 93rd percentile at my growth scan last Wednesday (1lb 14oz at 24+3), and was closer to that of a 27-weeker. My fundus also seems really high for 25 weeks. The tech confirmed my fundal height at the last ultrasound, and was nagging me about the GD test based on LO's weight and how I'm measuring.

    In the fundal height image on this website, I'm at the 36-week mark: https://www.gynob.com/fh.htm

    According to this image, I'm at the bottom of the 32-week mark:

    I'm a little concerned :/

    Have you got a short torso ? I'm short with a really short torso and my uterus is well within my ribcage now, I just end up sticking out a long way as baby can't go up any more ! Luckily my previous baby (and it's looking like this one is the same) have long legs and short torsos too, so at least they fit in me ok

    Your height, fluids, babies position, if your uterus has a slight tilt forward or backwards. If your bladder was full or empty when the measuring was preformed. Fundus height is not a good science.

    You can't really look at "fundus" pictures that show where it should be, the ONLY thing that matters is watch the tape measure says in CM when placed on YOU. However, even this can still be wrong due to the things above.

    For 24-25 weeks, the AVERAGE fetus weight is, 1.32lbs to 1.46lbs... So a little high, but keep in mind, we have 5lbs babies and we have 10+lbs HEALTHY babies that are born. No two babies are the same, and some babies put on weight faster in the start, and slower at the end. Also ultrasounds are inaccurate at guessing weight after 14 weeks, hens, why they should never be used after 14 weeks to figure out a due date.

    My other question would be is there ANY chance you could have ovulated a week or a week in half later? if so, than maybe your due dates aren't right.

    My baby was measuring 2 pounds 2 ounces at my 26.2 week scan. My 28.6 weeker weighed 2 pounds 11 ounces when he was born.
