at 32 weeks with my first, i measured full term, i just had a big baby. not a big deal, you just may have a lot of fluid or a big baby. :) my daughter was born 9 pounds 8 oz, 22 inches long.

This similar thing happened to my best friend. It turned out when she went in for her ultrasound that she had an increased amount of amniotic fluid. They ended up inducing her later that week. Everything turned out great! Good luck!

Does anyone know what you're supposed to measure for each week?

My belly went from measuring 38 weeks at my 37 week check to measuring 41 weeks at my 38 week check. They did an ultrasound and figured it was just the way LO was positioned.

Some people just measure differently. Regardless of if it's a big baby or fluid levels.



I had huge kids, normal fluid, and always measured at least a month behind.

Yes, my first measured ahead like that. I had a lot of amniotic fluid and he turned out to be 8.4, a good size but not huge like they suspected.



This one is also measuring more than the 97th percentile according to ultrasound but I'm a little more skeptical this time around.
