Yes baby above 97th percentile.

Femur length, head circumference and abdomen size are all end of scale so predicted 10lbs or over currently.
Baby was 5lbs A week ago at 31 weeks.

They have said they won稚 let me natural birth still like this at 36 because baby has cysts in abdomen and they don稚 want size to hinder delivery.
Was leaning to elective anyway though.

First born was only 6lbs4 at 38 weeks!

I was told to expect a 10lb baby. My little girl was 7lb5oz. The estimates are often wrong!

Thanks everyone - a real mixed bag of responses! If my growth scan does indeed 'confirm' that this is a whopper i'm going to request sweeps from 38-39 weeks and see what happens! I've also heard that breast pumping can help move things along, anyone have experience of that!?

My first was a respectable 7lb 4oz. I had growth scans with my second one and he was estimated to be the same at delivery, but came out 10lb 8oz, was not expecting that!!!
I am currently 33 weeks with my third, and have been advised to deliver at 38 weeks due to size (also have gd this time which doesn't help).

Opposite happened for me...i was sent for a scan at 39/40 weeks because the midwife said my fundal height wasnt where it should be. They told me at the scan that everything seemed okay. He was born a few days later at 9lb 13oz

I don't know where DS1 and DS2 were sitting as I didn't have regular scans. I had regular scans with DS3 as I had GD so I was able to get an idea of how he was growing. He was in the 95th percentile and they kept trying to get me to consent to an induction because he was going to be around the 9lb mark and they didn't want me going past 38 weeks. Didn't worry me because my eldest was 8lb 15oz at 40 weeks (EMCS) and my second was 8lb 10oz at 38 weeks (drug free labour and delivery). I knew I wouldn't go past 38 weeks again and kept telling the Specialist they could shove their induction and me delivering on their scheduled where the sun doesn't shine. Midwife was the only one who supported me in what I wanted. But, as expected at 38 weeks I went into labour on my own and he was 8lb 11oz - another drug free labour and delivery. Just for some comparison, DS4 I had regular growth scans due to GD again and he was in the 67th percentile. I had him at 39 weeks after I wanted to be induced due to the back pain and he was 8lb 5oz so if he'd been born at 38 he would have been around 7lb 7oz. Their guesses were pretty spot on. At your next ultrasound ask them for the estimated weight. They should be able to work this out with the chest measurements.
