Hi there my name is shannen and I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what they did about it. I am 33 weeks, and my fundal heigth is showing me to be 42 weeks. I am only carrying one child and the doctor is possitive about my due date. I feel like a horse and cant breathe you know all the common late pregnancy symptoms. Anyone have any ideas for me or had the same problem? email me please!!!!

have they checked you for polyhydramios - excessive amniotic fluid? I would ask asap, b/c it can lead to preterm labor.
Go see a chiropractor. That may sound silly, but I was measuring over 40 cm in my 27th week. Very worrisome at that point. I ended up going to a chiropractor because of the backaches I was experiencing, but the realignment my chiropractor did straightened out my measurements. I'm still a cm or 2 over where I should be, but that isn't considered a problem or really abnormal.
Yikes! That sounds tricky.
I don't have anything to add, but just wanted to say

I remember measuring 42 when I was at 38 weeks with dd... and THAT felt huge... Good luck. Keep us updated.
