head measuring large. hydrocephalus? sandra marie! Due March 15; 1 child; Oregon 912 posts

I'm 34 weeks 3 days, at my ultrasound today baby's head was measuring 37 weeks while his body was measuring 34 weeks.
Doctor said sometimes that could be a sign of Hydrocephalus (water on the brain), but he said it doesn't look like that and that it could just have a big head, but he is going to keep an eye on it (I have a level III ultrasound on 10/13).
Also, he said if it keeps growing like it is, that i'll probably have to have a c-section because it's a 9.1cm across right now (newborns are usually a 10 cm across, and pubic area usually only allows 10.5 cm, sometimessss 11 cm). :/



Has anyone been told there baby's head was large or about hydrocephalus?



I'm scaredddd.
I really hope he just has a big head like his momma & daddy :P

Not at all. He was small for the pregnancy and he was born small. He was a premmie actually.


Thanks!
