Re: If you measured ahead (uterus) during pregnancy...

With my oldest daughter I measured a few weeks ahead consistently the second half of my pregnancy. She was born 8 days late at 8lbs 9oz. With my second daughter she was a few weeks ahead a few different times during the pregnancy. It wasn't as consistent as my first, but she was measuring ahead at some of my appointment. I think she would jump ahead and then even our, then jump ahead and even out. She was born 4 days late at 7lbs 7oz. This time I measured 3 weeks ahead last month and right on track the last time I got measured. More like my younger daughter so far.

I think that was true for me too. DD was born right at 40 weeks weighing 7.1, and I measured correctly with her. DS was born at 37 weeks, weighing 8.6, and I measured 3-4 cm ahead the whole time.

ETA: I was induced with DS, I don't think he would've come early on his own.

Re: If you measured ahead (uterus) during pregnancy...

I measured 43 weeks at 37 weeks. My OB pushed the "baby too big" card and used that against my during my LONG (failed) induction due to preeclampsia. My "huge" baby ended up being a 6lb 13oz peanut. My fluid level was normal as well. I think sometimes fundal height is subjective because so many factors can influence it including fetal positioning, maternal size, amniotic fluid level, ect.. I wouldn't be concerned. Are Lisa and Angela concerned?

Ya'll are making me kinda nervous with the big baby thing

I did ask for it though! the midwives said that they'll put in for another u/s closer to my EDD if I'm still measuring this big and assuming I don't have GD (I really don't think I do).

I think they just want to make sure I'm still low risk- hence the glucose test and the closer monitoring. As long as I pass the Gtt hopefully everything will be fine!

I measured 3-4 weeks ahead both times. DS1 was born at 39 weeks and weighed 9lbs 3oz. DS2 was born at 37+4 and weighed 8lbs 9oz.
