My friend is a heavier girl and her doctor told her that she's measuring 42cm today but she's only 35 weeks that due to her being heavier or is the baby too big?

  • It could be because she is heavier, the baby is big or her due date is wrong.

  • If she is overweight she could have Gestational Diabetes or just have undiagnosed Diabetes. That can lead to a baby being to big and your belly measuring bigger as well.
