Any of your answers are correct, however the most common is that the baby is just a little larger. This can be from subsequent pregnancies or maybe the dates are off a little.  Also, you sometimes measure more with being overweight. Best wishes to you. You should have a us around 20 weeks to check out more info.

Is it possible that your dates could be off? Have you ever had an us with this pregnancy? Let us know how the us goes. Best wishes to you.

The babies measurements were 24 weeks 2 days by that only off like 4 days the baby is healthy and a boy.  Thanks for the advice though it made me feel better.  Sometimes it is just nice to have someone to talk to!
