So in this pregnancy and previous ones have often measured 1-2 weeks ahead. Today I went for an appointment and should have been 28 but was measuring 32-33 (she measured three seperate times, even got me to get up and then go back and try again to see if Bub moved or anything) she said the head was quite low. I am booked in for a growth scan on Thursday but wondered if anyone has any experience with this. At my last appointment 3 weeks ago I measured 26 instead of 25, but this seems like a big jump

Fundal height measuring ahead - Big jump

It's not the number it's how much it grows each week. I measured about 41 at 34 weeks, but my bub was 8lb10oz, so not super big.

So do you think a 6-7cm growth in 3 weeks seems a lot?

Yes but I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's on the higher side but it's a very very subjective test.

Don't stress too much. I was always measuring ahead. My bub wasn't massive. 3.88kgs. Fundal height can also change depending on bubs position.

I had a big jump from 33 weeks to 37 weeks. And the mid wife said if it's any bigger then they'll have to do an ultrasound and see if the baby is actually big and if he is a lot bigger then they might induce me.
She said it's very common and most of the time nothing happens.
The measurement doesn't really reflect the true aide of the baby, there's other factors.
I wouldn't be too worried.

Yes. From 32 weeks i started measuring ahead. From around 35 weeks i was 5 weeks ahead. By 40 weeks my fundal height was 49cm.
I had 2 growth scans. Both said bubs was big and i had polyhydraminos (excess amniotic fluid). Scans and my fundal size they were estimating a bub over 4.5kg. He was 3.9kg when born though... it must have been mostly the fluid.

Tried. I was induced at 40+6 due to pre eclampsia and my size. Induction failed due to failure to progress, posterior bub and bub distress from the induction drip. Emergency cesarean in the end.
