2 Bumps

18 Week Check-up Today- Uterus is much higher than expected....??

I am pregnant with #3, and today's visit was confusing. Four weeks ago, the top my my uterus was still pretty low, well below the belly button. Today....different story. My doctor admitted that she is VERY surprised with how far up it is now- up well over my belly button. And, I can feel movement up that high too.
She said that it is most likely one of the following: Either my uterus is more stretched out from this being baby #3, I'm farther along than expected (however I am very certain of my last period so it can't be too much of a difference), or multiples. She said that she is very anxious for my ultrasound in 2 weeks to determine the reasoning behind this.
Has anyone here ever dealt with something similar?

  • Me :)

    I measured "large" my whole pregnancy with my second. I decided not to have an ultrasound unless a problem arose and one never did. We half expected twins even when I was in labor. When a placenta came instead of another baby we knew for sure lol. He was just big, 10 pounds and 22 inches long lol. We're both healthy and fine.
