25 week appt. and ?

Had my 25 week appt today and every thing looks great. BP, weight, HB are all good. When she (the OB) went to measure my fundal height, she asked me if the baby felt bigger than my other two. I said no, but that she did feel really high. I have been thinking that she feels as high as my other two did at 30 weeks. She said, "Well, you are measuring at 28-29 weeks."
I am not worried as I know that the measurements can be off and can also vary somewhat depending on position and the individual. I've just always measured right on with both previous pregnancies and they were both just over 8 lbs.
Is anyone else measuring bigger?

At my last appointment I measured right at 24wks. Glad to hear that everything is great with baby. Maybe you are right about the position of your baby making a difference. Did she happen to mention the weight of the baby at all?

I was measuring 3 weeks ahead, but my midwife said 3 weeks + or - is within the range of normal and doesn't really mean anything because it could be due to baby's positioning or if you're carrying high.

I am not for sure what I am measuring. I am going to ask though at my appt on Thurs. I feel like I am close to 10 weeks ahead just in comparison to when I was prego with my DD and what I remember. Baby B's feet is in my ribs and Baby A's head is way down low.

I think twins are usually measure about 6 weeks ahead at this time.

I had my last appointment last week but he didn't measure anything. No clue where I'm at but I feel bigger than I was with ds.

I'm sure everything is fine. My doc said that with every pregnancy the muscles are weaker and the uterus tends to flop out more. so maybe that's part of it? i'm sure everything though is fine.

No. Baby measured in the 86% (same as my other two) at the 20 week U/S. I really am not worried about it, just curious if anyone else had the same experience. It's funny because my mom had HUGE babies (11 lbs.) and she always measured within two weeks of her EDD. So my guess is that this baby is just carrying higher (although sometimes she feels sooo low that I am walking around her).
