I went to the midwife on Friday and I am measuring 38 weeks even though I am only 34 weeks. At 22 weeks I measured 21 weeks, and then it jumped way up at my next appointment, 27 weeks, I measured 31 weeks. So in 5 weeks I gained 10 cm. At 31 weeks I measured 34 weeks and now at 34 weeks I am measuring 38 weeks. I was measuring dead on or a bit small until 22 weeks and then I ballooned. Does this mean big baby or what? They are also not sure whether this baby is breech or head down (both of my other two were breech and this one was for a long time too) so they are recommending another ultrasound. I am going to do it mainly for the positioning issue but a part of me is scared there's going to be another baby in there! Or one really big one. I know weight estimates at ultrasound are notoriously wrong so I am not going to let it bother me too much if they say the baby is huge. Still, why am I measuring so big???
Oh, I did have an ultrasound at 20 weeks so you would think if it was twins we would have seen it then but who knows?
