Measuring 5 weeks ahead? Miss Sierra 2 kids; Wheeling, 397 posts

Hello ladies....

I had my prenatal appointment today and apparently I am measuring 5 weeks ahead? Anyone else have this? I don't really know what this means. I asked my doctor if it is something to worry about and he said lets see what the ultrasound will show us next week.... I am worried? Could I go into labor earlier?

I was measuring about that too. But I had just had an ultrasound 2 weeks prior. He told me the baby could be carrying high, or standing up.

Your due on my birthday. WooHoo! Measuring 5 weeks ahead is just saying the baby is bigger then what average babys are. He/She is measuring about the size of a baby that is due 5 weeks before you. Im pretty sure things will be ok. Good luck.

I'm measuring several weeks ahead as well. Mine is due to polyhydramnios - too much amniotic fluid. I also have a large for gestational age baby.



Are they sending you to a perinatologist?
