At my 25 week appt, I was measuring 3 weeks ahead. At my 28 week appt I was measuring 5 weeks ahead. Midwives were not concerned and said that it was probably the position of the baby. They didn't think that the baby felt really big nor did they think I had an excess amount of fluid. However, I am FEELING really big... I feel like I am more like 34 weeks or so instead of the almost 30 weeks that I almost am.
Anyone had this experience? I am wondering if I should get an ultrasound. It sounds like there can be serious problems if the problem is excess amniotic fluid. Would I still be able to have a home birth?
I am also worried about having a big baby as I'm a really small person. I am wondering if maybe I might deliver early? My first baby was 1.5 weeks early and my 2nd was induced at 40 weeks. Both babies were around 6.5 lbs.
