  • Most likely is a miscalculation of when you got pregnant. Try to relax. Has the baby been moving like normal?

  • Measurements are based on an average. Some babies grow faster and bigger than others. Just like people....some 2 year olds are tall, some are short, some weigh 19 pounds, some 30, Calculations are based on averages....and on dates that may or may not be accurate. I wouldn't worry unless your doctor tells you something is wrong.

  • By 40 weeks they (the Dr.) should already have identified any abnormalities. Have you had any sonos yet?

  • Not since they told me it was a boy. They said my belly should measure about the same as how many weeks I am and it's been 36 for 3 weeks
