She is no longer 3 weeks ahead! I guess it was her position, she has flipped to head down and she's a bit lower.....so that made a big difference. She's measuring right on now. I was a little freaked out for a while!

Every time I see a post about babies measuring "ahead" or "behind" in the third trimester, I am going to reiterate that dating via ultrasound or fundal height measurement becomes extremely unreliable in the final 3 months. So long as growth is occurring and there is movement, a strong heartbeat, etc, mothers should NOT be worrying about this.

Rhea - I totally agree. That's why my OB doesn't even tell me how I am measuring...she also doesn't tell me or predict how much the baby weighs. There is no accuracy in the final months. She also allows me to opt out of cervical checks the last 4 weeks bc they also can't predict when you go into labor. You could be walking around 2 cm dilated for weeks...I didn't want the stress if knowing how much I had dilated before labor. I also wanted to minimize the number of cervical checks since I was GBS +

Rhea---my OB was concerned with me measuring 2 cm (2 weeks) ahead on the fundal height measurement. I have been consistently that much bigger each time. However, I can't imagine that every woman's belly measures exactly the same every time. I think docs are sometimes obsessed with standards and statistics and don't look at the whole person.

I had been measuring 3 weeks ahead since 22 weeks. I think at first it must have been fluid level, then baby's position.

I don't ask or want cervical checks done either before I go into labour, seems pointless.
