ive been measiring big all the way through. its nothing to really worry about. all humans are different so why cant baboes be? il be having my 6th scan this week!! and itl still be the same... nothing to worry about its just measuring the bigger side of normal. all im fussed about now is im 34 wks... measuring 39.... what on EARTH will i measure at 39?

I got a personalised growth prediction chart when I had my scan (this is a really new thing) - it's all based on my height and weight and says I will measure slightly smaller than the usual (probably because of my lack of height!). Just goes to show it's all individual though, and don't babies have growth spurts at times? That and if the baby has changed position would surely make measurements innacurate too.

Measurements can be really inaccurate. I was measuring 31 weeks at 31 weeks but 28 weeks at 33 weeks! hmm I've had enough scans for other reasons to know that baby and waters are growing not shrinking. If they don't get the tape straight, or measure from / to the wrong place it will be inaccurate.

Does anyone have any experience of this? Will they just keep an eye on the growth? Could my bump slow down and eventually catch up with dates? Am I going to have a gigantic baby? Any experiences would be greatly received...
