27wks 3days measuring 35weeks!!!

Okay ladies,  i need some advice here!!  
at 25 wks i was measuring 31wks fundaly,  they had me take the 1hr glucose and i passed with flying colors.
I had my 27wk appt Friday and i was measuring 35wks fundally.
I am overweight to begin with, but I have only gained 5lbs so far with this pregnancy.
I switched Dr's at 12 weeks so I could deliver at the hospital closest to my house.  Every ultrasound that I have had the baby has measured 3-4 weeks ahead but they havent changed my due date.
I go in Monday morning for a growth ultrasound and the Dr is talking about changing my due date by almost 5 weeks
Has this happened to anyone else??

I was not sure of my LMP so the 1st dr's office did a dating ultrasound,  I have been saying from the beginning that they it was wrong!  I spotted for a few day's in May but it wasnt a "normal" period for me.  and I am pretty sure I got my period sometime between 15th and the 20th of April. If I am right that would put me at being 31-32 weeks pregnant now
which I think would make more sence considering how big i am measuring.  I know the measurements can be off by 2weeks in either direction
But to be measuring that far ahead??    We will know more on Monday but the more I have been thinking about it the more strange it sounds to be so far ahead

Thanks for reading my novel
Karen

Your last period could h ave been just implantation bleeding.  Or perhaps your baby is ahead of the curve.
Are you monitored for gestational diabetes?  It can lead to larger baby as well.

No gestational diabetes,  my fluid levels are normal,  hopefully tomorrow we will get an answer.  I know with your 3rd you can show quicker and measure bigger but by so many weeks.

At 28 weeks I measured up 33 weeks and I am certain about my dates as far as last period I even know the date I had unprotected sex the ONLY date & I did not have gestational dibeties. The doctors changed my due date so now I am due 3 weeks earlier then before. I'm not sure why. They said my baby was huge at 28 weeks but now they are saying he isn't, Sometimes I think the doctors don't know so they tell you anything. Good luck :)

I would say that the light spotting that you had in may was either implantaion or a breakthrough bleed, which can happenalot and throw people off because they just think it was an unusually light or weird period, but all the while they're pregnant, this usually happens due to hormones, not enough to stop a small period like bleed but enough to keep the pregnancy viable :)

If I go by my April lmp I will be due January.

How did you get on?

Well, i was wrong,  lol,  He is measuring right at 28 weeks.  so they are not changing my due date.  He is what they called Frank Breach,  basically he is sitting on my cervix and bladder and his feet are up by his head.  I go back in 3 weeks for them to check his position again.  
I am not going to get worried about that now. he has plenty of time to change positions.
I am measuring 5 weeks ahead now fundally,  my fluid levels are normal.  i just have a big uterus!

At least now we know and he is doing great, nice and healthy.  you could see him breating in fluid on the ultrasound and they gave me a really really cute profile shot of his face!!
