Re: Measuring ahead??

I meassured 3 weeks behind, delivered at 36weeks and my son was almost 7lbs! Dont worry too much over how you are meassuring. It isnt accurate always for predicting weight. Otherwise my son would have been 4lbs

My first measured big and ended up beig born a week and a half late-and was 6 lbs 12 oz. my youngest was measuring small an was born at 36w6d and was 7 lbs 5 oz. it's almost completely irrelevant in my experience. My first they said he would be close to 10 lbs with the ultrasound they did at 39 weeks. Psh.

Re: Measuring ahead??

I've been measuring a bit ahead this whole pregnancy. I am not worried at all and neither is my midwife. I had my 18 week ultrasound and I am not having any more. I won't induce or do a csection simply because they estimate the baby will be big, so no point.

I work with someone induced at 39 weeks on the dot because her doctor swore the baby would be 10 lbs. Plus. She ended up with a section and a 6 lb baby still having swallowing and other health issues 7 months later.
