Im 34 weeks pregnant and had an aptt with OB's just this morning. She had a feel and said i was measuring 37 weeks! :0 when i have been spot on all pregnancy untill now!
Im booked in for a growth scan in 2 weeks time. I want a VBAC and they want to make sure baby will fit.
Im only petite currntly weighing 60kgs (ive put on 18kgs)
My first was breech, i never laboured and had a c-section. She was 7lb
I dont have gestational diabetes.
Could my dates have been wrong?...but out by 3 weeks is alot?!
Does this mean i might deliver earlier than estimated?

Dating scans this far along are notoriously inaccurate. So are fundal measurements imo. That said, at 34 weeks mine showed bubs to be measuring at 36 weeks. She was born at 41 weeks, weighing 9 pound 12 oz (4.4kg)
Eta-I have two friends who were told they'd have 4kg+ babies, one ended up 3.7 and the other 3.8!

I've been measuring ahead since around the 12 week mark. I was measuring as far ahead as 6-7 weeks. I'm now 37 weeks and it has dropped back to 3-4 weeks. The Fundal Height measurement isn't very accurate and growth scans can also be wrong as well. I've also had lots of extra scans (previous baby had CHD) and baby was showing in the 85th percentile for weight but has now dropped back to the 75th percentile. I wouldn't be to concerned and it's not an indication that your dates are wrong as I know my are right.

Re: Measuring BIG...
At 32 weeks i was told bub would be over 4kg and was already measuring over 3kg. I was also attempting vbac. Bub born at 35 weeks via emergency csection weighing 2.5kg!

I'm just joining to see whats said.
I had a scan today at 30 weeks and measuring 33 but not seeing Dr till next week to ask what that means. Assuming its had a growth spurt and will slow down again then it'll all add up? ;o)

I measured ahead from 12 weeks and by 37 weeks was measuring about 43 weeks! My DS was born by emerg c-section at 37+6 and was 4.5kg (just under 10 lb). I had GD with my first (3.3kg), but not this preg, so go figure! He is the healthiest, most gorgeous sturdy specimen of a baby. He has thrived from day one and we have never had to be concerned about his weight.

I had dd at 37 .4 weeks (was told she was ''massive'' and around 4.5kg's.) Out she came at 3.86kg's.

Fundal height is not a great indicator. My fundal height is measuring 4 weeks ahead, but according to growth scan bubs is 2 weeks behind, just swimming in heaps of fluid.

Yeah it's more likely the guess of baby's size is inaccurate than your dates. If your Ob is telling you you're measuring big be prepared for the induction/c-sec suggestions - best to do some reading now and make your decisions so you aren't caught off guard when/if they're brought up.

Re: Measuring BIG...
I was told my baby would be BIG. She was born 4.9 Kilos. So for me they were accurate. Same with the one after her. He was induced 2 weeks early due to size and was 4.3 kilos would not like to have gone two weekslater. They were also posterior births.
