I had an appointment yesterday, and my doctor said I was measuring big for 27 weeks. So I have a sonogram scheduled for the 29th.
It could be that she's just a big baby, there's too much amniotic fluid, or her position.
I'm scared that something is terribly wrong... I can't shake the feeling.
Has this happened to anyone? Was something serious wrong?
Sorry, I clicked post too early. My oops.
you could just simply be farther along than they think you are...or you just have a big baby! Try not to worry too much until you actually know what is going on..

I'm trying not to worry, but every time I think about it, I cry. I can't relax.
Quoting Supafly★:" Well I thought it was going to be a lot worse lol. That is very common and often means nothing. The u/s will get to the bottom of it but most of the time there's no reason to worry so relax! "
I hope it's nothing.
Mine was the opposite. I got a call on a Friday saying my last 3 measurements were small and kept getting smaller. They feared IUGR. When I went in for the ultrasound my daughter measured perfect, but I had low fluid. It was 5.2 cm or right around there, if it had been at 4 they would have sent me to be induced immediately.
They gave me 24 hours to drink as much water as possible and rest. came back and my levels had upped a bit. I was check every week until I delivered and never had any other issues with it.
I measured "big" my whole pregnancy, there was nothing wrong. :)

That makes me feel a little better.
I have measured big all along this pregnancy and most of my last one. Nothing was wrong. My last pregnancy ended with a very healthy 9lb baby girl arriving a week late and this time I'm 37weeks 3days right now and today I measured at 41weeks. My doctor is not concerned. I've been meauring big all along (even though i havent gained a pound the whole pregnancy and didn't with my last one either, i was 165 when i got my BFP and i am 165 today) and he sounds great and is very active, probably just another good size baby.
Measuring big by fundal height or even ultrasound is not something to worry about. There are so many things that can cause you to measure ahead by fundal height and ultrasound measurements are often WAYY off. Just take it easy and don't freak yourself out over nothing.
I'm not measuring big, but my little Monkey is. By my dates, I am 28w6d, and my Monkey is actually measuring 31 weeks per an ultrasound earlier this afternoon.
What were they basing your measurement on? Just the size of your belly? At both 27.4 and 30.4 weeks, my fundal height was 30 ("they" say fundal height should match the number of weeks after about 24 weeks or so--not sure exactly when). My midwife did NOT freak out and order an ultrasound at 27 weeks! At 32.4 weeks, it was 33 and at 34.2 weeks (this Tuesday), they did an ultrasound and said baby was measuring a week small for GA! So, TOTALLY not something to freak out about. Keep in mind that everyone grows differently and like you said, there can be other factors influencing.

Thank you. :)
I'm starting to calm down a little. Still a little on edge, though. I probably will be until the 29th.
