Ok so I had a scan today and baby is measuring at 11 weeks 2 days which is a week over my dates. I know my dates are right with all the charting, opk's etc, I know exactly when I o'd. My last son was 9p 11oz, does this mean this baby is going to be big because it is measuring a week ahead?? And do I go by their dates or mine??

I'd say if you were charting and doing your opks and stuff that your O date is more on and to stick with that date. Did they change your due date based on the baby measuring big?

Both of my DSs measured big as well. My son's were 8lb5oz and 8lb8oz, even though I gained 60+lbs with DS1 and only 35-38lbs with DS2. My midwife seemed to think (with me anyways) that with both my boys being the similar in weight that it could be that that's what my body has determined to be a "good weight" or something like that for my kids. So we'll see! I am expecting another "big one" this time too.

Mine always measure a lil big, too, but I always go by my estimate on due date. If u know for sure when u conceived that is what I would go by, but it's totally your call. I also don't like to be overdue so changing the date up makes that more of a possibility. Glad your babe is h & h!

With my DS1 they changed my due date from Dec 8 to Nov 30 - so 8 days.  I knew my dates as I was charting but none the less he showed up on Nov 25 - so 5 days early from their dates but 13 days from my dates.

I think I'm in for another big baby too, even though I haven't even had my first u/s! LOL Both my boys were 8lbs5oz and 8lbs8oz and I gained 60+ with DS1 and between 35-38 with DS2, so I think I'm just destined to have another big baby! Man, if this baby is under 8lbs I'll be SHOCKED! LOL

Myfirst was 8p11oz, second was 8p 7oz and third was 9p 11pz, I'm scared of what this one is going to be!! They usually get bigger each time, I was hoping that because it's a different father this time it make a difference but now I don't think so, I'm prob in for a 10 pound baby!!! Argghhh!! I think I'll use their dates at least that way I'll have a chance of being induced earlier than with my dates!!! Lol

 I always measured ahead with my two boys, but this time Im measuring behind (by 4 days). I dont think it means you'll have a big baby necessarily, but maybe one that might come a bit earlier than expected.  DS1 and 2 both measured ahead but were born average weight on their due dates : DS1 was 7lbs,10oz and DS2 8lbs 0oz.
