My little one is 28 weeks today. Yesterday we had an USG and the measurements were all within 28-29 weeks however the head circumference measured 30wk5d, almost 3 weeks more.



Has any of you gone thru that? is that normal?
thanks

Oh yeah. My daughter's head always measured weeks ahead from the rest of her. At 33 weeks her head was measuring like 40 weeks or something close. But when we got closer it proportioned itself out.

Perfectly normal! Babies have big heads, my LO's head measured ahead my entire pregnancy, but she evened out.

Haha my little girl has a big head too!
Her head is measuring 35 weeks, and the rest is only measuring 33 weeks.

At my last ultrasound with Ayden I was 36 weeks - the machine measured his head circumference as "ORR" when we asked what it meant, they told us "Out of Range Reading" ... his head was so big he couldn't fit in my pelvic area - when I had my c-section 2 weeks later he had already pooped inside of me...he NEVER even engaged...



But he's perfect :)
