    Default Abdominal Circumference Question

    Im currently 27 +4 and had a scan this morning as my fundal height was increasingly larger than the number of weeks pregnant. At 27 weeks I measured 31cm. At the scan baby was measuring correctly for head circ and femur lengths but abdominal circumference was larger that it should be. Baby was also estimated to be over 3 pound.

    Of course I consulted Dr Google and am now a bit concerned about shoulder dystocia. How much difference would there need to be between head and abdo circ for it to be a worry? All of my other children were between 3.3 and 3.5 kg so not big.

    Edit- Deleted as I don't think I answered the question properly.... Helps to read the OP properly first
