    Hi ladies,

    To cut a long story short, in the early months, according to the date of my last period, I thought I was 4 weeks in front of what my 8 and 12 week scan indicated. (This is my first baby). As time has gone on, everyone at work (I work in a hospital) has been commenting how huge I am for my gestation. Today I had my first measuring of fundal height with the mw and I measured 30 cm nearly 5 weeks ahead. The mw made a consultant appointment for later this week for his opinion, anyone had experience of this, esp with a first baby? I have always felt my LO would arrive in Feb, but gestational diabetes is at the back of my mind. Been a rubbish week as I was admitted to MAU on Thursday with a suspected pulmonary embolism :(

    I was 4 weeks ahead at 28 weeks, but 3 weeks later went back to normal size. Also, in terms of gestation, in the first 12 weeks whatever you were measuring and date you were given is the age of the baby. My sonographer said that the first few weeks of gestation is set by size and doesn't differ until later weeks where babies grow at different rates
