between today's appt and my mw appt two weeks ago I grew 6 inches. I measured 30 at my last appt (about a week behind) and today I measured 36. I actually measured 39 at first and she kept working to get a better measurement as she was worried that the ob would send me to the hospital right away.

With DD I had polyhydramnios and often measured several weeks ahead. My water broke right before a scheduled u/s.

I do not want to have this baby early, too. I'm so bummed that I might have this again. I reluctantly agreed to an u/s next week to determine the severity of the issue if it is the issue.

Anyone else gone through this?

It doesn't help that I am also all the sudden swollen beyond belief. I feel like the staypuft marshmallow man from GHOSTBUSTERS.

Oh no! I am so sorry. No personal experience, either, but big hugs from me. What is the plan for you now? Just u/s and wait????

The u/s will give the m/w more information regarding what to do. Oddly enough, given that my water broke early last time, I don't really know what the options are. From what I have read,it's dependent of the amount of extra fluid. I scheduled my u/s for LATE next week in hopes that it gives me more time to understand my options.

The m/w group I go to is great about not rushing anything unless necessary and not forcing labor to start so I feel good about that aspect as I know I can trust them if they head down that path.

I had it with at least one pregnancy officialy diagnosed, but think I had it for 2 more.

I have never had my water break unless broken by OB or right before the baby was born. All mine were born at 41-43 weeks gestation.
