I've got a question for anybody who feels like they can respond. I have been large for dates since I started seeing my midwife at 10 weeks. I was about 15 cm. at that point. I stopped seeing the midwife at 17 weeks, after a traumatic experience with her at a sonogram appointment. Don't need to discuss that debacle at the moment.
However, by the time we had scheduled that sono, I was measuring 6 cm over what is expected. The sono showed one healthy baby with no problems, so I was inclined to ignore the fact that I am large for dates. For the record, we know the dates because I had IUI so there is no chance of confusion with the dates.
Well, since I stopped seeing the midwife, I have been measuring myself weekly as well as checking my BP and urine for glucose and protein. My blood pressure and urine tests are fine–no problems whatsoever. However, rather than staying 6 cm over where I should be or having the rate of growth slow down, it has increased. In the past 2 weeks I have grown 3 cm each week which now brings me to 35cm fundal height at 24 weeks (no, I'm not kidding).
If I'm not having multiples, this seems to indicate SOMETHING is wrong or at least going on that I should be aware of. I am tempted to go to a doctor to have just a consultation, but I really don't want to end up in an argument about my deciding to UC. And most of the stories I've read on-line here about trying that do not have happy endings as far as experiences with professionals. But I'm wondering whether I should see an OB or perinatologist anyway and whether I simply hear more about the disasters and frustrating experiences of those who have consulted with professionals.
Also, if any of you have any ideas of what the problem might be, I 'd appreciate your speaking up. I don't think I have pre-eclampsia because my blood pressure is generally around 90/50 and I've had no other signs of it. Nor do I have any swelling. I am slightly worried about gestational diabetes despite the fact that there isn't sugar in my urine. Any other ideas?
Thanks for your help.
