When your baby is measuring two weeks heavier than where your at. I'm 22 weeks today and my son is measuring at 24 weeks. Does this mean that he will be coming early? This is my first and I'm unsure about everything. I'm so glad he is healthy and gaining weight. He is almost two lbs already. I'm just glad we found out he was a boy lmao. And since I'm high risk does that mean she will take the baby even earlier due to his size or will wait until his duje date gets closer?

Baby has growths spurts so it could just be that. It could be baby is further along. It could be human error too. So no way of really knowing.

Why are you high risk?

 Could just be his natural growth. My two boys always measured ahead but came on time. They were 8lb9oz and 22''.

There is no way to accurately measure a baby's weight until they are born, so I would say it means nothing

Your baby is measuring within average.   Not a reason to intervene!    Its safest to intervene only when necessary, so its great to learn about what is normal and what is outside normal.

I want to encourage you to be sure to ask your questions--  glad you do here, but I mean in the appointments when you are measured & checked on.    You can even make a list and bring it with you.

The fundal height and ultrasounds are inaccurate for weight. If the blood sugars are under control, there is not much support, from what I have read, to induce early. But, it is important you do your own research and see what you feel comfortable with, when it comes to induction.

I've been measuring a week or so ahead since 22 weeks. No biggie. My kids weren't born any earlier. And there is no way to tell if he will come early on his own.
