I am 33 weeks pregnant and measuring 40 weeks. (fundal height) bub is large and i have a lot of amnionic fluid. Will I get to full term or is it likely i will burst under the pressure and go early? anyone had similar problems?

I'm measuring large as well(22 measuring 25)...oince you get closer to term, if there is excessive fluid, the increased pressure CAN cause issues...but it isn't a guarantee. Some people go through pregnancy just fine!!



It's called hydramnios...I'm being watched for it because of the advancement of my fundal height...



I hope this helps...

A dear friend of mine was measuring 5 1/2 weeks ahead and she just delivered a 8lb. 12.5 oz baby girl last night on her due date.
