Did you or are you measuring big?

I'm 28 weeks 4 days but at 26 weeks 4 days I was measuring 29 weeks. Did anyone else measure big? If so was it because you were further along or the baby was big? And did you deliver early?

  • I am measuring big, about 1.5 weeks ahead. I have been between 1.5 and two weeks this entire pregnancy. I am almost 40 weeks, so going early: nope lol. Don't know how big this baby is.

    I measured ahead with my daughter and she was 8.6 lbs at birth, almost 22 inches long. I was induced at 38 weeks with her.

  • I measured about three weeks big most the time I was pregnant. They didn't seem to worry until I was measuring 41 weeks and was only 38 weeks. My son was a big baby.

  • at 32 weeks I was measuring 39-40 weeks, then 2 days later I was right on track than at 37 weeks I was measuring about 44. I had a big baby at 8lbs 11oz, 8 days early from my due date.
