We had a 30 week ultra sound just to check growth and fluid levels and got results today, the Obs consultant said tummy was in the 53rd percentile but head 90th she wants to do another one at 34 weeks any one else had a situation like this? She said it is not a worry but of course I am.................and the fact baby has a big head.

ultra sound shows head 90th percentile

My babies head was in the 92nd percentile at our 32 week scan. Had another scan at 37 weeks and was down to 75th percentile which was pretty much what he was when born. Obviously was just going through a growth spurt at the 32 week scan!

My friend was told the same, had a perfectly normal sized baby in the end- growth scans are notoriously inaccurate later in pregnancy.

Hi there , 2 weeks ago I was 30 weeks , my fundal height was measuring 36weeks . My midwife sent me for an ultrasound which showed baby was in the 60th percentile but his head is in the 95th percentile . I also have increased fluid levels . We have a repeat scan in 2 weeks also , I will let you know how it goes .

According to my 30 week ultrasound with DS he was going to be massive, so much so that the OB was talking about a CS.
Delivered vaginally, a little boy smack on the 50th percentile for everything.
dont stress too much

Are they so inaccurate because genetics take over later on and each baby grows different towards the end like they do when they are born?

Both my bubs had big heads, it was noted with DS at ultrasound.
They were born with heads at the top of the scale too, DD was referred to a specialist in case her big head indicated a problem! They wanted to with DS, but I think I just make big headed bubbas!
Both of mine grew into their heads, and they were ridiculously cute as babies too (not biased, hehe)!
