Hi Everyone,

I had my 30 week doc's appt today and when my doc measured my stomach she said I was meausing at 31 weeks. I asked her if it was normal and she said yes and also said the baby is measuring at a normal size and dhe did not see any problems with the baby's growth.  I wanted to know if everyone else measured a week different then the current week you are in?

I am measuring 2 weeks ahead. The ultrasound, however, showed my due date being right on. I just don't know what to think and didn't ask the dr any questions.

Those measurements are averages... everyone will grow differently and every doctor will measure differently.  It's not an exact science.

Thank you for saying that. I was at my doctor yesterday for my 26 week appointment, and she said I was measuring 28 weeks "of course." I said "Why 'of course'?" And she said, "Well, when you start off chubby, it throws off the measurements." It made me feel like crap, and I left very upset. It's not that I didn't know I was chubby, but I didn't need to be told it right then - especially since they confirmed to me yesterday that since being pregnant, I've gained one pound.
