i measured 4 cm ahead all the time until 36 weeks. Sarah came out a perfect 8 ponder. It is normal to measure a bit ahead or a bit behind. There can be so many reasons for why; excess fluid, baby had a growth spurt, the person measuring is not doing it right etc.
If the doctor get consern about it they will most likely do another scan to just see what is going on and as far as I know most women measure a bit off at some stage at their pregnancy.

I mentioned this in your other post... both I and my niece measured between 29-30 cm at 25 weeks, and in both cases, we measured right on target by the next 4 week appointment. So really, I don't think you need to worry about it. It's pretty common... and I'm thinking it's more than coincidence that all of us measured the same at the same time.

Anyone have any ideas on where to locate a belly growth chart. I was to the doctor's today and I am just 25 weeks. My belly is measuring at 30 cm, (nurse measured me at the Doctor's today), and she said that it was quite big. I went online looking for one to find out what it is supposed to be, and with a Google search someone said that it is supposed to measure at 25 cm and not much bigger, otherwise it is a concern.
The doctor would have told me if it was a concern, I just was wondering what it all means and what percentile I would be in. I guess maybe I am looking for a belly chart to show percentile's etc.
Any ideas on where to get one?
