Im 28 weeks pregnant. My doctor ordered an ultrasound because she said I was measuring big. The ultrasound showed the baby is measuring about 2 weeks bigger. Im just wondering if that means he will come early??

Ultrasound is not a good indicator of anything it is an estimate. Just make sure you know when was your last period does not mean she will come early. It does not mean anything. Your dr probably wants to scare you into induction or c-section.

I have the same issue. I know my conception date and the date they used is my missed period (two week difference). I went in for my 28th week check up to find out my lil guy is in the 92nd percentile for size....apparently lil peanut isn't so little lol hopefully I don't have gestational diabetes; which can lead to bigger babies. IF all your test come back fine I wouldn't worry about you may just have one juicy baby=) Best wishes!

My ultrasound says I'm 35 weeks. Yet, going off my last period I'm 32 weeks. Extremely confusing.

I'm in the same boat as you, just the other way around. I measured small at my 28 week check by 5 weeks so was ordered a U/S said that baby was about a week smaller but on the grown chart he/she is right on the 50 percentile. Measured small again at 32 weeks (but by 3 weeks) so went again for U/S and again showed about a week smaller but 50 percentile. I have another U/S in two days and I'm guessing it will say the same as the others. My first baby was born a week early (I was induced due to a liver problem) and no one noticed that I was measuring 4 weeks smaller until a few days before she was born weighing 6lbs 3oz. I was a small baby and so was my husband, so I think we are just genetically predisposed to have small babies. Plus every one measures differently which can make a big difference! It could just be that you're going to have bigger baby (I was told that up to a 3 week or either said is completely normal), and it doesn't mean that he will come early... could still come late! You have to remember that the measurements are not 100% right, it's just a guideline there is no way to no for sure to know how big or small the baby is until he's born. Good luck!!

My older son was born at 39 weeks, and was 8.5lbs. They were conjecturing about how he had to be a 40 or 41 week-er based on his size. Though he was born on his due date based on my cycle, but had his date changed a week later based on my 10 week U/S.

it could mean they have the dates wrong when you first found out you were first pregant or the baby is just big good luck with everything
