Strangest thing. Throughout my pregnancy (first) my LO has been measuring about a week ahead of me, so when we went in this week for our 34 week appointment we were expecting her to measure 35 weeks. Well, she measured at 37 weeks!!!! I haven't had any complications, no GD, great blood pressure, never even got sick once, so I'm a little worried I'm going to have a giant baby!! The doctor scheduled us for an U/S at our next appointment... in 2 weeks, if she hasn't made her grand entrance yet. I just hope for a healthy baby!! Has anyone had this happen with them? Maybe just a growth spurt?!

This may be because baby is a little larger than average. Many doctors will induce early if the baby's organs are fully developed.
