  • all babys grow differently..did they give you a a diabetes test..or have they tested you for it yet...again all babies grow at there own rate..there is nothing to worry about as long as she is healthy you are fine..then all is well...

  • Unless you know the exact date of conception, you could have concieved earlier which would make the baby measure farther. Or, your baby is just growing fast.
    I'm measuring 2 weeks ahead and I have low iron too but no diabetes.
    If they find anything from the GD test, they will call you. Just try to relax. Good luck!
