Nervous about growth scan!

Well I was ok but now I'm not sure what it all means :/

Since being measured I have always been 1cm ahead of my weeks. No GD or BP issues. Seen a different midwife every blooming time!

Last Thursday saw a midwife who didn't feel about just loosely laid measure over me, told me how broody she was and said I was 4cm ahead of my weeks....and to come back a week later if still big need a scan. Worried I asked what would happen she said oh we'll induce you!!!

I then on the Saturday had antenatal classes the midwife offered to measure me and I was 1cm ahead (bit of a change in 2 days!).

Th following just gone Thursday saw another midwife and measured 3cm ahead of weeks I was 35+2.

Now got growth scan Monday! Midwife said not to worry but I don't know what worst case scenario will be an scared given we are this far with no It just they may induce if baby too big to get out at 40wks?

I'm probably being pathetic but I have white coat syndrome so panic a little :( hope bubba is happy well I'm getting kicked a lot and been extra hungry these last two days reckon baby will look like rice Crispie with what I have eaten :) lol

Anyone else had this?

Thanks Cheenab honestly some MW give over the top info that it is not relevant - even the team leader a hospital said that to me not realising they are freaking you out and googling lol

I'm sure it will be fine but I'm still nervous... still guess helps to know if baby is a big one ;) just grateful and thankful for our miracle x

Thanks for your advice xxx

Hi Pheobe

Hi pheobe, hope you're doing ok. Somewhere on the forum someone else had a fab way of putting the accuracy of measurements - it was something like getting your DH to crawl under a duvet, curl up into a ball and then you should measure the size of the lump on the bed and guess how tall he is.

Hope all goes OK tomorrow x

Hi Pheobe hope your scan went well? I had growth scan at 33weeks as I keep measuring 2-3cms ahead and he's off the chart, they thought 10-11lb baby but scan said 9lb birth approximate (he was 4lb 11oz at the scan). My last boy I had was 8lb 14oz born and this lil man I'm carrying now is not going to top that I'm sure. As other people and yourself said they all measure you differently :(
