I just saw your post right now for the first time. I don't have an answer for you... what did your doctor say?

I was frustrated too for not getting any answers, but you have to remember if people don't answer it is usually because they don't know and want to leave it to someone who does. For your question, I have no idea. Could it be that you miscalculated? How did you find out the size? I am a__suming your doctor told you. Did she not give you any explanation when she told you?

Your doc should be sending you in to check for Gestational Diabetes. I was tested my first visit and now at 23wks i need to be tested again. This is the only issue that I can think of that would cause the baby to grow faster then it should.

at my last drs apt, three weeks ago, I was 22weeks and I measured 24 or 25, cant remember now. My doctor had a very understandable explaination. He said that during the second trimester, the uterus grows a bit faster than the baby needs. Then in the third trimester, the uterus doesnt grow as fast and the baby plays catch-up by growing about a half a pound per week and filling out the uterus a lot more evenly. He says it is extremely common to measure big during this time, but things will get back on track around 7 months. I hope this helped you and I said it clearly.
