I have been measured twice now and both times have measured 4 weeks ahead of my dates. Im having regular scans and nothing noted in those, but am a little worried now. My DD was only 5lb at birth. I have another scan in 2 weeks.
Anyone had this and gone on to have huge, or normal sized baby? Im only 5ft!! ahhh
At one point during my pg with DS1 I measured 10 weeks ahead and they checked again to make sure it wasn't twins - they also tested me for gestational diabetes! Not reliable IMO. I gave birth to DS1 4 days before his due date and he was 8lb 1oz, long and skinny.
Thanks for posting this, it's something I'd like to know too. I'm 24 weeks today (viable horray!) and was told on wednesday that baby feels about 28/29 weeks (not possible - had fertility treatment so I'm certain of my dates). I've got an appointment with a consultant next week to discuss it. Bit worried that there might be something wrong with my baby.
The midwife asked whether I was having twins - is it possible that they could have missed twins at 3 scans?!
Also, if the baby is big will they still let me go ahead with my planned home birth?
I heard that big babies are no more difficult to deliver, and some times easier.
I dont think they could have missed twins at 3d scan. In all likelyhood we are carrying extra water. Im having gtt test so am worried as i have heard if you do have pregnancy dibetets you will have big baby.
Me dd was early and consultant is keeping close eye so i know if any problems i can discuss. I too have another scan booked (6th one) in 2 weeks so will let you know what they discover. heres hoping just loads of water or this little girl is taking after her 6ft tall dadddy.
