    Default Measuring two weeks ahead

    Hi everyone. I had my 20w morph scan yesterday (I'm 19w5d) and am measuring at 21w3d! My dates aren't out as it's an IVF pregnancy. Anyone know if this could be gestational diabetes (I'm actually on the tiny side not overweight), earlier EDD or just a huge Bub? Also my placenta is completely covering my cervix... Does anyone know if it moves that much before birth?

    I'm pretty sure after 12 weeks, measurements aren't as accurate and can be up to 2 weeks out? (I think that's what my ob said) as babies all grow at their own rate. Could have just had a growth spurt, be a tall baby, etc etc.

    Placenta can move, they will do a check up scan I assume, they do usually move I believe.

    As babymummatobe said after 12 weeks the measurements can be out. I wouldn't say bub is huge but maybe long legs or torso. Are you a tall family.

    I had my NT scan today and bub measured a week ahead and the sonographer said she wouldn't change my dates because even now measurements aren't as accurate.

    I was the same, was measureing spot on until 22 weeks then a week ahead. I had GD also but gave birth to a 6pound 1ounce baby girl 8 weeks ago. GD doesn't always mean big babies, as we found out 😊 if u are tall thst could have something to do with it. I wouldn't worry though. My placenta was also covering my cervix but did move and i laboured naturally. Congratulations

    I was the same too. 2 weeks ahead at morph scan, 3 weeks ahead in third trimester scan! Nothing to worry about. I suspected GD but I didn't have it. Bub was born at 3.5kg, 38 weeks. There's a small margin for error with those scans too.

    I saw an Ob all the way through so had lots of u/s and in all of them my DS2 measured ahead, usually 2+ weeks. I was 100% positive of conception date, and early dating scans confirmed that. DS2 was born almost 4kg, so almost 9 pound, 2 weeks early. So he was a big boy without being huge. No GD at all.

    This is also my experience almost exactly although I did have GD. It was very well controlled though and he was born at 40 weeks at almost 4kg. I'm currently 33 weeks with a girl and no GD and she is also going to be a big bub. She is also currently measuring ahead so sometimes it's just genetics and not due to GD.

    The measurements that were the biggest were head and stomach!

    DS2's stomach measurements were the most ahead. My Ob said that's the biggest indication of heavy baby vs the other measurements. DS2 measured only a few days ahead on head, about 2 weeks on length, and 3 or more on tummy. He was 53cm I think which was 65th percentile? Head was 36cm. But being only 38 weeks skewed the chart.

    Sounds like your bubba is going to be a good weight and nice sized head
