im only supposed to be 29 weeks and 2 days.. is it normal to measure ahead by over a week?? it does matter about the measurements.. maybe she's a big baby?

  • its good if she is a big baby , you should be happy she is big and healthy. you arent measuring over a weeks. you are measuring ahead by 5 days.

  • When I was 34 Weeks I measured at 44 weeks. My son was Huge. Some times there is to much water, and some times they are big. Dont worry that is normal.

  • It just means that either your dates are a little off and you're a week farther along, or your baby is a little big right now. That doesn't mean you'll give birth to a huge baby, just that right now your baby is measuring a little big.

  • I am 23 weeks and he is measure 25 weeks. It is not uncommon to measure big, because the ultrasound is only an estimate. I know I am only 23 weeks, because I was on fertility drugs and know exactly what day I conceived. Don't worry, it's not uncommon.

  • It is normal. I am 16 weeks 4 days and measure 17. Since it is in centimeters, it is probably easier to round up then figure out tenth of a centimeter.

  • measuring your uterus IS NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE do not go by that only early ultrasounds can tell you roughly how far along you are..i measured 30 weeks up until 42 WEEKS.. believe me it can be wrong.. docs say give or take 2 weeks.
