  • I'm 30 weeks. They have already done one detailed u/s so I'm sure there is just one. The dr. said they were just going to have us checked because we have really good dating but are showing bigger than should be, I just caught her hand written note on the orders when they were calling it in, so now I'm worried. It's amazing how scared you can become in the coarse of a few months
