Alright to start last night at like 11:30 I was gettin real bad tummy cramps and I thought ah well normal I guess I figured growing pains. To make it short I havent been feeling good. I see my doc on wed the 26th so I called askin if I can come earlier they said no and to go to labor and delivery at the hospital. So I go at like 4:30 ( it's now 7:55 pm) and they hook me up and I listened to the heart beat and they checked my urine and cervix. Everything is great. But.......... I am measuring at 33 weeks!!!!! and as far as I thought I was 26 weeks and due 8-24 now they didnt do an u/s so I have to get that on wed. But how could this be? I am sooo confused now. A nurse measured me and 2 diff docs. The only way it makes any sence is that my periods havent been too regular in 2003 so when I found out I was preggy it wasnt cuz of a missed period or cuz of any sickness I just remember thinkin to my self geeez its been along time since I have had a period and since I was always paranoid about bein preggy I took a test but I always wasted money takin a test like every other month lol but on dec 28th it came up positive so here is where im at with this. I need some insight here girls. My tummy has grown much much more since the pics u all seen which were from easter I swear my stomach looks just like jordans just a lil smaller. I am gonna by a camera on sat and I will post pics asap! Someone help I dont know what to think or do. As soon as I see my doc on wed I will post with updates too. Im sooo scared. Could this be a mistake? ~ erica.
Wait im confused. When was ur last docs appt? End of april right? Well, didnt the doc notice when measuring you that u were measuring 7 weeks big? Or big at all? If not, and u were measuring fine and normal then, how could you jump to measuring 7 weeks big....? R u sure maybe you may be developing.. I cant remember what its called, but it causes rapid weight gain and swelling etc.Its a pregnancy complication. Im surprised they didnt test or look into it at the hospital, damn im going to have to go look what its called.. That just doesnt seem right~
I know it doesnt seem right at all! I had my last appt on april 26th they didnt say anything other than everything looks good. Great now I might have a pregnancy complication omg I am goin crazy I hope everything is still the same I mean I know some women are bigger than others not all tummys look the same at stages. I hope u find what u were trying to tell me. Im on pins and needles here lol cuz I could understand 2 weeks maybe even 3 but not 7 theres just no way but they said since I see my doc on wed to get everything taken care of there. I just need to relax. What the heck does a measuring tape thingy know anyway lol they also said hes a big boy. My doc even measured me on 4-26 and didnt say anything seemed off she said she was feelin my uterus somewhere above my belly button and the doctors and nurses today are trying to say its somewhere under my ribs. what? My stomach has grown quite big though is all I have to say about that . My brain feels like a puzzle right now. ~ erica.
K I just read about the toxemia but it says that I will cause ur baby to be small and hes big, also they say it is a result of high blood pressure and overweight I am on the heavy side thanks to this blessing lol but my blood pressure is fine and so was my urine and it says that those r the two ways to diagnose it. Who knows ? ~ erica.
Hey puddin! Lol, that happened to me too, but it was just three weeks off...The reasons for a large measuring uterus are:
1..Miscalculated due date
3..Too much amniotic fluid which would result inthem extracting some like an amniocentis
4..Uterine fibroids(a tumor)...
But dont worry too much until an u/s
mine was reason number 2 .. Lol
did they set u up for an emergency u/s ? They should have
Nope! No emergency u/s I tried askin for one there but they told me to wait till I see my doc since its only in a week. I better only be off by a few weeks. Or maybe he is just a big baby like im guessin. Cuz I swear my stomach got real big lol u have to see. U think I could mail I pics again jordie? If not its ok I understand. Im just bein lazy about it lol. K gotta watch american idol . Bbl ~ erica.
Dont worry im sure ur ok and even if it was a complication , doctors can do everything to make sure its treated. Toxemia causes rapid weight gain etc. Theres also pre-clampsia which causes swelling.I guess their related....Or u could just be measurin big and baby had a sudden spurt or something. Jordan measures big too. .But its odd that u would measure that much bigger so quick. And also.. Seems like ur doc would wanna see u asap and not wait.
Ah I didnt see people already replied on that lol..
But yea, it might cause a smaller baby., buut it says a symptom is rapid weight gain. Also, if u have pregnancy diabetes it makes a baby gain more weight. I just think ur doc would wanna see u asap... But it could just be one of those other reasons like excess amniotic fluid so dont worry too much~
Hey hun im sure everything is okay like everyone is saying......They didnt want me to get toxemia and my like last 3 docs appt I had high blood pressure and some protein in my urine so thats why they induced me but im sure hes just a big baby! U will be fine sweetie! Ill keep ya in my prayers! Much love!! Rub that tummy for me b/c once u have him u will miss it I miss mine and I never thaught I would say that lol!! But its a comforting thing I guess! Well good luck hun!!!
I had a similar thing happen to me, but it was in the begining of my pregnancy, I wasnt sure about when my last period was but I didnt remember having one in december, but I could remember having one right before thanksgiving... Before I went to the doc I had estimated a due date, so I thought I was 13 weeks... Well the doc was feeling, and pressing and all that good stuff and he told me I was only 6 weeks... I was like how is that possible?!? So I missed a period in december, and then got pregnant, and I had found out I was pregnant before I should have even suspected my period was late? Well then at my next appt. I would have been 10 weeks from what the doctor had said from before, and he asked me if I wanted the triple screening thing done, I said yea so then hes like ok then we need to find out how far you exactly are, so I got an u/s and jumped up 5 weeks... So from the begining to end, I fell back 7 weeks, and then jumped up 5... Who knows, I might jump up another 2 sometime and be right where I originally was. I havent had an explaination for all this... I really just think different babys grow at different times, some are bigger, some are smaller, so I dont think that the doctors are right when they do all the estimating crap... And the size crap with the u/s... They just assume, with the average size and everything. Dont stress, its more than likely nothing...When the doc told me I was only 6 weeks, I was worried that the baby had died and I had a missed m/c... And that the baby was 7 weeks too small cuz I had smoked in the begining before I knew I was pregnant.
