Did you follow measurement or due date?

    I'm 36+5 and measuring 39 weeks. I know there is a 2cm either way thingy, just wondered if anyone was measuring ahead and went into labour earlier, more in line with their measurement than due date?

    Thanks xxxxxxx

    I measured 37w on my due date and Brooke came out 2 days later weighing 7lbs 7oz - normal weight & size! If you're measuring a bit bigger, it could be water babe x

    I measured 37 wks at due date, had her one day later and she was 9lb and I had no water really, so the measurenents are pretty hit and miss! X
