    Default How can you be ahead?

    Out of curiosity how can you be say a week or two ahead If you know your period was on x day?
    Is it miscalculation ( hard to miss heavy af) or just growing super quick? Or just a big baby?

    Often it's just a fundal height measurement, or sometimes scan measurements, that puts you ahead or behind. Both can be pretty inaccurate though. Scans are based on averages and with fundal height ideally your fundus should be 1cm for every week gestation (give or take a couple of cm), but lots of different factors can affect it.

    I was always considered 'behind' with DS, both fundal height and scan gestations.

    Depends how they are determining that they are ahead, basically what PP have said.
