    I had my anomaly scan the other day at 20+4 weeks and they said everything appeared normal and they seemed pleased with babys progress but i have been looking over my notes of my measurements and my babys Head Circumfrence (HC) seems a little on the big side to me :wacko:

    In my notes it says babys HC was 187mm!!! :o anyone else had around that size at 20weeks? I hope my baby doesnt have a big head :nope:

    I think the head is big until around wk 20ish and then becomes more in proportion around wk 28ish, so I wouldn't worry too much unless the doctors are worried!

    best wishes

    lmao don't worry darlin, I've just seen my babies head by accident by havin an abdomen scan, and I got such a shock cos the head looked huuuuuge ;) it'll just be the proportion thing, it's meant to settle down around week 25 I read :) xxx
