Re: Measuring @ 26 Only 24wks, Should I be worried?
I was measuring way ahead too, I was measuring 26 weeks at my 22 week ultrasound! They said my big boy is in the 86th percentile. The OB recommended I take the one-hour glucose early, but it turns out I don't have gestational diabetes, just a big baby. I don't think its uncommon. I've also read that sonograms conducted earlier in the pregnancy are much more accurate that those conducted later in the pregnancy, so it doesn't necessarily mean the baby will be early or that the due date is off. Also, sometimes people think they should be induced early or have a scheduled c-section if their baby is big, normal question, but unless there is some compelling medical reason, this is not usually warranted. Women have big babies all the time.
