worried now ~Mrs.Medlin~ Due May 1; 1 child; Lake City, Arkansas 75 posts

had a dr. app yesterday and i was excited that my nurse scheduled an ultra sound for me on the 25th but i didnt kno why. turns out my belly is measuring 38weeks and not 31weeks. said that they wanted to see if baby was gonna b big or if there is extra fluid in there. i was confident that he was just big because my son weighed 9lbs 11ozs.at birth and was measuring big the whole time i was pregnant. but i read online what extra fluid can mean and now im scared shitless! even though i doubt i should be.

I hope you get some reassuring answers, and that there's nothing to worry about.

If your ultrasound is scheduled for the 25th I wouldn't be too worried. If they were really concerned with fluid levels you would be having an 'emergency' ultrasound. Which would happen within the day or a few days, not a few weeks.

thats what i was thinking but the ultra sound lady is on vacation till the 25th and they scheduled me as an overbook so i would be seen that day. idk if its because im doing my sugar test that day and are making it convenient for me ill start the test get into my ultra sound when they have time for me and then finish the test or....? if it was something they were really worried about there would b someone else who did my ultra sound right??? like down in he ER or something? or in L&D?

Yes they would find someone else to do the ultrasound. Doctors can do them. Or they'd send you to another hospital.

I am due on may 2nd also, and my stomach measures more than 36 weeks right now. How did your ultra sound go?

turns out they just wanted to check his size. hes in the 90th % tile for his size so hes a big one :) not A shock to me though i knew he would be. dr. feels that he will be around 8-9lbs... i think he will be in the 9's . close to 10 lbs like my 1st son . i also turned out to be GBS positive. but allergic to the meds they were gonna give me. so they decided on a alternative.
