I know how it feels to wait for a response, so here goes. I am not so far along as you if you go by my due date (29 weeks). If you go by my measurements though....(37 weeks). U/S, measurements and lst menstrual date do NOT match at all. It is kind of weird having your Doc give you such a big span of time and I am just trying to be ready when it is her time to be born, whenever that is. This is my first baby and hse is a BIG girl if you go by the last due date and not the other two, my last u/s said she was in the 98th percentile for size ... kinda scary to think about delivering a big baby....kinda scary to think about labor and delivery at all LOL. Are you all ready for your boy to come? I'm still trying to get the nursery the rest of the way set up. There doesn't seem to be enough time in day!

hey. I am 34 weeks (due nov24) and am measuring almost 37 weeks. My first son was 6lbs even born on his due date. They are saying this is going to be one BIG baby. My doctor told me yesterday at the rate things are going this one will be 8 1/2 - 9lbs. YIKES. I am not a big girl and had trouble delivering my first son.. I had a c-sec.. I go in at the end of the month for another ultrasound to see how big this baby really is and I am afraid they will book me a c-sec early (i was HOPING for a VBAC but am seriously reconsidering that now). I am scared now because I could be having this baby as early as the 11th of november.. that's less than a month!! I have so much to do and so little time!

I have a silly question to ask. How are you ladies measured 3 wks ahead like that? Is it by how big your uterus is in cm or is it through ultrasound, and the baby is the one who measures big? in other words, are they outer or inner measurements? :O if that makes any sense

i just saw my dr. on monday. I was 34 weeks then adn she said i was measuring between 35 & 36 weeks. she just used the measuring tape on my belly to determine that. she then pulled out a little chart that showed a guesstamation of what he would weigh if i go full term. It said almost 9 lbs. I have also read that they can be off by a pound or so. you won't really know until they come. Anyway, i am a bit nervous too. I am quite small. i didn't think my husband nor i was big enough to produce a 9 lb baby. I am guessing he will be smaller, especially since i most likely will not make it to my due date.

To Kayla's ? : The Dr.'s outer measurements of fundal height by measuring tape has been consistently staying 8 weeks ahead of the u/s due date determination of weeks and 4 weeks ahead of the last menstrual period determination of due date.

Okay L, thanks... That's what i thought but wasn't sure. I'm 32 weeks measuring 34 but she said it was normal to be over or under by 2cm... but 4-8 cm???? that's insane! Good luck to you and your baby girl :)
