Hi delgirl I had my abnormality scan on Thursday but didnt meet with consultant - just fetal assessment specialist. So she checked baby and said all was perfect. Then on Friday I had routine appointment with doc and she checked heigh of womb and said "God you are very big aren't you". She then measured me and said I was the size I should be at 25 weeks and that hopfully its a growth spurt. So I was wondering if anyone is measure much bigger like I am and if there is anything I need to be concerned about. Im thinking as the scan was fine I should be fine but the specialist was focusing on the baby - now Im wondering if there is too much fluid and I know thats a concern isnt it?

hello_there - don't know I am afraid but I would have thought that if all looked ok on the scan then you would be ok. I am sure that if they had any concerns they would scan you again. Hopefully someone will have experienced similar and will put your mind at ease.

There is absolutely no reason to be worried. Amount of fluid around the baby is automatically checked during the scan, and they meaure the deepest pool of fluid around the baby, obviously there has been no concern othwriese it would have been flagged up. The fact that your GP has measured you ahead of your dates is not that relevant. Fundal height can vary from person to person and it is not an exact measurement, it is a method that is less than 50% accurate, in fact, the tape measuring method is rarely even used anymore.
