I have measured right on my whole pregnancy so far. 3 weeks ago I went to my dr and they measured me at 26 weeks which I was and I went back this week and they measure me at 32! I am only 29 weeks. That is a growth of 6 in 3 weeks! Does this mean that baby boy is big or am I further along? He is head down already and his but is all the way in my ribs so he doesnt have much room!
It could mean he's big but I was always measured farther along on the u/s than I was and my baby was a perfectly normal size and born on her due date. The later u/s are not as accurate for dating as the earlier ones.
It could mean he's big, but sometimes measurements are wayy off.
i was measuring 36 at 40 and my doctor was concerned so he sent me to have an u/s to make sure baby was thriving in the womb. He thought she might just a be a shrimp.
PSH. Had an 8 1/2 lb baby.
I wouldn't worry about it unless your doctor tells you something is wrong.
