Baby's measuring big at 24 weeks

So I went in for my 24 week appt today (actually I'm 23w4d, but who's counting), and my doctor said baby is measuring big. Fundal height was 26cm and from what I read, at 24 weeks it should be 24cm. My last u/s 4 weeks ago also said baby's measuring big, but my Dr. didn't seem too concerned then. He still doesn't, but he did say I need to "tune up" my diet. D'oh! Did he just call me fat? LOL

I go in for my GD test and also a followup test for my thyroid med in about 3 weeks, so I guess we'll see if that has anything to do with it. I wonder if I start following the GD diet now if it'll have any impact. Anyone else had this happen? Or am I just being a worrywart?

Howdy Janet!

My son measured big his entire pregnancy. He is now 6'4" so that was the reason!

Since your doctor mentioned tuning up your diet, why not take a look at this article on Healthy Pregnancy Diet ? You can also check out What Not to Eat during pregnancy might be helpful, too.

I hope all your tests come back normal. Hopefully someone else will jump in and share their story, too.

My baby has been measuring further along as well. My dh is a giant, so I'm blaming him.
