Bub is measuring 33weeks 4 days, but I am currently 29 weeks pregnant

I am currently 29 weeks pregnant and had a fall on the weekend in the supermarket. Everything is ok with bub and me, but during all the tests scans etc i learnt that my baby is measuring equivalent to 33weeks 4 days in all measurements. Why is this? Is it Unusual? Do you think it is likely my baby will be born earlier? Or am i heading down the track for a c-section? It is my first bub and i just looking for answers.
Thanks so much

Answer: Hi, Scans measure averages so if your baby is above average in size it will show as further along. If you are sure of your dates then this is the best indication as to when the baby will be born. Earlier scans are usually more accurate. Best wishes, Alex
