What does it mean that your uterus is bigger than it should Gabe's Momma Dukes 1 child; Massachusetts 61 posts

I know for a fact i'm not further along than i thought because my period always comes on time.. and my last period wasn't late..
I dunno if this is something i should worry about.. cuz the doctor says they're going to check the size of the via ultrasound.. just to make sure their calculations were incorrect.... I'm at 27 weeks and they measured my belly at 31 cm..
Oh and I know i'm not having twins due to the fact that I only hear one heartbeat.

Have you had an ultrasound that confirms only one baby? It is very hard to find 2 heartbeats and sometimes they beat together. Yesterday it took the nurses and doctor 38 minutes to find both heartbeats on my babies and at the end they used the ultrasound machine to see where the babies were so they could get them.

I measured big for the majority of my pregnancy and it evened back out in the end. For me it meant nothing...my son was only 6 lb 11 oz. Sometimes it can mean you have extra amniotic fluid or that your baby is a little big. But I would say more often than not it means NOTHING. No worries. :) Good luck!

only ten pounds? lucky duck

i always recommend to new mommies to get their first outfit in preemie and get at least a weeks worth of preemie clothes...because babies rarely fit into the newborn sizes...

unless you know your having a chunker :)
