Can a fibroid cause you to measure 8 weeks ahead?

My baby is measuring perfectly at my 11w 4 d ultrasound but my uterus is measuring at 20 cm (my belly button) This is my third child never measured ahead with others and never had fibroids before. So can a fibroid cause you to measure so far ahead?

  • Yes, it's possible, but it would have to be a big fibroid. What did they see when looking on your u/s? How large was the fibroid on the scan?

  • The doctor really didn't say how big it was, All he said was that he thought it was a fibroid.
