Measuring Big

I just went to the doc. and he said Im measuring 32 when I'm only 26 weeks pregnant.  I'm scheduled for another ultrasound.  This will be my third one.  They said when I was 17 weeks that I actually looked like I was 18 weeks.  I've already had the glucose test done and it was fine.  My first born was 9'6.  So should I be worried?  I'm over weight so could they just be off on the measurments?  Or am I going to have a BIG baby?

I was measuring ahead of myself till I hit about 20 weeks.
Then after that I caught up with the baby.
Being overweight won't miscalculate your baby's size.
I'm overweight too and I was measuring what I should have been.

They just told me I am "measuring" ahead too.. I think all babies just grow different and I wouldnt be concerned unless your Dr. leads you to believe you should be! =)

Good Luck!

I had an ultrasound done yesterday and I'm measuring two weeks ahead of my LMP dates.  I should be 27 weeks, but I was measuring 29 weeks.  So I think it's very common to "measure ahead"  ...I'm not too worried about it ...I feel like it's better to measure ahead than measure behind!  =D
