    Oh blast. U/S at this stage are not accurate at all! I hope you don't get pressured into anything.

    It's the same dr that stressed me out about weight. A little frustrated because my next appointment was supposed to be with one of the other doctors that I like better, but they canceled that appointment to reschedule me with her to have the ultrasound on the same day.

    DS was big too, he was 6lb 8oz at 35w 1d. I was 10lb 10 oz, dh I'm not 100% sure, but I think he was average.

    I've had friends who were pressured into C-sec or early induction because baby was already 9-10 lbs by 37 weeks. Then they are born and are only 7.5 lbs. Ridiculous. U/S weight estimates can be off by 2-3 lbs this late in the pregnancy, I'm pretty sure.

    That sucks you have to see the Dr. who has already given you grief.

    I'm sorry they are worrying you. I hope you don't have to deal with a lot of pressure.
    I totally agree u/s can be way off on weight and personally I don't understand not giving labor a try just because they say "big baby". I would be furious with them to be pressured to have a c-section for that reason and baby come out much smaller than predicted. DH and I were talking about this today...I can't remember the exact measurement but when I went in the hospital with PROM with DS1 they did an u/s. That was like 33 wks 2 days and he was born just a few days later weighing roughly a pound less than they had estimated via u/s.

    I'm just going to go with the flow and advocate for myself a vaginal birth unless a c-section is neccessary. I agree that I don't think you can predict very accurately the size of the baby and a 2-3lbs is a huge difference.

    I've been googling, of course - lol!, and there doesn't seem to be any concern other than breaking of the collarbone of having a bigger baby since I don't have GD, Pre-eclampsia, etc.

    Not going to worry anymore. I know she is just fine an if I have her early, I'm fine with that too. I want to wait to at least 36 weeks though.

    I do this to...I prefer to just go along with what doesn't really bother me and not say much until it gets to the point that I really need to put my foot down. Each person has their own tolerance meter and strength of preferences and I tend to be fairly go with the flow even though I do lean toward the natural side where it really matters. Here's hoping you make at least 36 wks and maybe even 38. Glad you have been able to turn off the worry.

    Ugh. How frustrating ! I agree with the others. Those measurements are horribly inaccurate. Definitely advocate for yourself and a vaginal birth. Also be aware that the medical community may try to convince you a c-section IS necessary when it really isn't. Women have vaginal births of larger babies every day and there are simple techniques for getting large shouldered babies out. Don't let them scare you!
