She chalked it up to 3rd baby stretch and said if I'm still measuring 4 weeks ahead at my 16 week appointment we'll talk about u/s options, etc. We heard a good strong heartbeat (yay!) and she didn't go search for another one, so I guess she doesn't suspect twins, thank goodness!
I'm not really worried, but it does seem weird. Has anyone else had this happen? Did it just resolve itself later? I knew I was having to pull out the maternity clothes way earlier than before!
Now this time, with #4 I'm measuring even farther ahead and I seem to be growing exponentially instead of staying a constant few centimeters ahead. We are suspecting twins this time, but I haven't had an u/s yet to confirm. At 10w3d I measured 16 or 17. Now at 11w5d my fundus is at or above my belly button already (which should be about 20 weeks). My DH is convinced it's twins (has believed so since before we found out I was pregnant), I don't want to get my hopes up too high, I'm afraid I'll be disappointed. I'm not wearing maternity clothes yet this time, I think I'm trying to minimize how much I'm showing so I don't have to answer questions LOL. But I certainly can't wear my regular pants, I outgrew them a couple of weeks ago. I'm in elastic waist pants 2 sizes too big, and the elastic is getting tight in them.
i went for my first appt today, and i'm 12w 4d and i measured 17 i had an U/S on friday to look at a subserosal fibroid and they measured the babe while they were in there looking around, and it measured 12 w 2 d, so again one baby and it's right on tract.
it is unnerving at first to measure that big, but i think it's pretty common with baby number 3
This time I am measuring behind.

NOw I'm pg with my 3rd, conceived 356 days after my son was born, so yeah, at 12.5 weeks I'm already into maternity clothes. I have a mw appt tomorrow, can't wait - I bet I'm measuring 18! This time I'm NOT going in for the ultrasound, no matter what!!!
