Heya my fundal height was 46 weeks and I was 37 week pregnant. I had to have scans bub was 95 percentile and glucose check again ( all good )......So after all that they decided to let me go and did nothing. I went 11 days over and was induced then had bub emergency c section. He was 10lb 6oz!! For my first!!!
Omg! That makes me nervous
I just found my old charts from my last pregnancy.
At 28w I measured 31
At 31w I measured 35
At 34w I measured 35
At 36w I measured 36
At 37w I measured 40
At 38w I measured 42
& at 39w I measured 43!
I gave birth to an 8lb 1 very healthy baby.
I really think that all they want to see is that you are still growing.
Oh and they told me my son would be about 11+ lbs. I gave birth to him via Caesarian because of what they said. I was told he was in the 95th percentile and really he was only just a bit above average size. I think I could have gotten him out naturally but was never really given the chance
I have measured ahead with my last two pregnancies from about 25ish weeks but I developed a rare condition called Polyhydramnios (excess amnio fluid) with both of them and this was why.. Baby was fine and they could not work out the reason why but I spent a lot of time at the hospital being checked etc and scans every visit to check on baby and my levels of fluid but it was all fine in the end.. I had 2 healthy babies both 5 days early and both weighing 8pounds..
I would not worry to much if you can help it.
