I've measured 2 weeks bigger this whole pg so far and starting to wonder what that actually means? I am 200% positive of my conception date (a one time deal), so that's not it...what else can it be? 2 u/s showed that baby was right on with the March 24th due date, so??? Yet, I'm still getting myself all worried that baby will be huge or something. Does it mean I'll birth 2 weeks early? Any ideas/stories/exp? Sorry if these are silly questions, it's just that with my other pg's I always measured right on the week I was at...
Yeah, as long as you're within +/- 2cm of the weeks you are, measurements are considered normal, so really, you're not even measuring big.
Even if someone is measuring more or less than 2cm of the weeks they're in, there are so many reasons for it: baby's position, uterus, placental location, mom's build. There are so many variations, which is why fundal height alone is not a good indicator of much, except maybe the need for an u/s if it's really far off.
