Passed 3 Hr.

Not that I was worried since I had already passed the 1 hr glucose tolerance test with flying colors. SO, the large size of this baby boy continues to mystify the Drs. ??? No clue why he's so big. I really hope that his huge size won't mean a c-section for me. With any luck he'll come a week or two early before he reaches 10+ lbs.

Woop!

I think you'll be fine with birthing that baby just the way you want. Ladies do it all the time. Smile

Yay ! Congrats on passing the 3 hour ! Biggrin My second was a big baby too. He was born at 38 weeks and weighed a whopping 9 lbs, 3 ounces. I didn't have GD either. He was just a big baby.

Great news! My son was a big boy and there was no reasoning behind it either. Some babies are just bigger than others:)

Great news, glad you passed. Your just having a big baby nothing wrong with that! Will they induce you early to his size?

I know how you feel Smile Landon was measuring 6 lbs and 2 oz at 33 weeks Smile Just a big boy they say.. Each day is it getting harder and harder and I am not sure if my belly can grow any more. 4 weeks to go for the c-section Smile I am kind of hoping he comes at the beggining of Jan.. (I'll be 37 weeks and by then he should be about 9 to 10 lbs)

I don't know yet. Hopefully they will address this at my next appt next Wednesday. Otherwise, I have another measuring ultrasound on January 12th. Baby is full term on January 2nd.

Are you ok with induction if they offer? I know some people are not that is why I asked. Smile

Yes....I'm okay with induction if it means I don't have to have a c-section. I really really really don't want a c-section.

We'll see what the Dr. suggests. If he brings up c-section, I'll bring up induction!

One of my midwives said your body will grow a baby only as big as it can handle. I hear stories about women having vaginal deliveries of big babies frequently so I hope it works out for you.
