I am 33 weeks - first baby. I measured 36 weeks with the tape measurer so doc sent me for an U/S. My baby is 6.2 pounds and measuring 36 weeks. Also my amnio fluid is high, and baby is breech. I am having a c-section anyway, but is all this normal? My dates are right so what is going on?

Hi have you been tested for gestational diabetes? My fluid was high also and that's one of the causes. I had my baby 2 weeks ago by c-section and he weighed 6lbs,14oz. Good luck to you!

I also have high fluid and a large baby. I tested negative for the gestational diabetes. All my doctor said was that she was glad to hear that the baby was big because she thinks I will have the baby early because of the amount of fluid. I wouldn't worry alot of people measure a head. I say it's normal but if you need, talk to your doctor he/she will beable to answer your questions better. Good Luck and keep us posted.

My baby is big. I'm 40 weeks today but she measured 6lbs 3 oz at her 34 week u/s. I don't have gd. Some babies are just bigger than others. You'll be fine
