    Default Baby's head measuring 2weeks ahead!!!!

    Hi All,

    Just had a scan this morning im supposed to be 23w 6d and the scan was mainly to check that my cervix was still closed.

    I noticed when the technician did a measurement of babies head it showed up as 25w???? She questioned how far along I was again and then kept re-measuring to (what im guessing) try and get a size that was closer to 23w 6d.

    Has anyone experienced this before??? They said results will be with my ob tomorrow so I will call him then but wondering if I should be concerned???

    Appreciate any advise.

    Yep our baby has constantly measured 2-3 weeks ahead from the 12week scan, including its head. We are having an IVF baby so know the EXACT moment of conception so our dates can't be changed. I am almost 29 weeks and our OB told us that it just means to expect a big bub, we were told we are looking at a 10 pounder :-)
