IVF but measuring 2 weeks ahead

hi ladies! hopenyou ate all feeling well! Just wondering if any of you have been measuring ahead? With IVF we know how far along we are, but my little guy is measuring 2 weeks ahead!! Anyone else measuring big?? I'm 30 w 3 d and measuring 32 w 2 d!!! 
When does the worry stop?? 

Re: IVF but measuring 2 weeks ahead

  • What has your dr said about it? I was measuring a few days ahead last ultrasound but they didn't seem concerned. I would think measuring ahead isn't a bad thing, I would worry if I was behind. Maybe your babe is just big!!?

  • Woah! That is a rather large discrepancy! Do you have GD? It can cause large babies. I'd totally ask your doc what s/he thinks is up if you don't have GD.

  • I was measuring 21w3d when I was 19w6d. They said that sometimes they are big early on and then they slow down. With you being into your 3rd trimester, you may just have a big baby. As PP said, if you don't have GD then it's probably okay.

  • I thought the same thing as @AandDM2014. How is your blood sugar? I failed my first glucose test and barely passed my second, but was not treated for GD. I ended up delivering prematurely at about 35 weeks and had a fairly large baby for that gestational age. My NICU docs suspected I had undiagnosed/untreated GD. I'd definitely ask your doc what they think is up. Best to you.
  • I haven't had any scans since my anatomy scan at week 20-21 . However , at that scan I was measuring almost two weeks ahead . I'm also getting comments on how big my belly looks - people love mentioning how they think I'm gonna have a big baby . I don't have gestational diabetes so I'm thinking it's just genetics . I have heard though that those ultrasound measurements can be pretty off .. Especially when they use them to estimate weight .
