So, Yesterday I went to the doc's for one of my bi-weekly check-ups and when she was done measuring my fundal she asked when the last time I had a sonogram was.... I told her 20 weeks, and I had one three weeks ago at a 3d place. But the doctor i saw 2 weeks ago didn't want to hear about that visit or any of the information I got from them (needless to say i hope she's not the one at the hospital when I'm delivering, because I don't like her!)
This doctor(who I love) was like oh what did they tell you... I said “I'm not sure how accurate they are, but they are measured him at 5lbs”... 3 weeks ago (30 weeks) and at my last appointment I was measuring right on the money...
She said “well, we are going to schedule you for another ultrasound, because you are measuring at 37 weeks now”...she thinks he's just big...and she wants to see just how big and check my amniotic fluid...because i asked about the GB but she said no my testing was good and sugars in my urine were fine for today.
They want to make notes in my chart so during delivery they can plan for it... I'm really not wanting a c-section... I'm so hoping i can vaginally deliver baby boy! (I guess the odds are against me.. I'm a c-section, my husband was... lol- I just don't want the recovery time... plus sleeping in the hospital for 3 days... booooo)
I was 5 lbs 12 oz cuz my mom had hyperemesis and back 30 yrs ago there was no medication for it. If there was I'd prolly be around 8 lbs. OH was born at 28 weeks weighing 4 lbs 6 oz so full term he would be around 9 lbs. so I think we're gonna have a chunker
I've been measuring either a week ahead or right on target but I'm interested to see what I measure at my next appointment on Tuesday. I feel like I should be measuring ahead as I feel so massive compared to this stage of my last pregnancy.
Then again, I measured 3 weeks behind my last pregnancy so maybe this is what "normal" feels like haha.
I was measuring 3 1/2 weeks ahead ( measured 37 at 33+3) but had a growth scan at 34 +3 weeks that showed baby at 46%ile weighing 5 lbs approx. They didn't check fundal height at 34+3 or 35+3. Was checked again at 36+3 and 36+6 both showed 36. Just had another growth scan today and baby was 37 weeks for head circum, 36+5 for abdomen, and 37+1 for femur. Approx weight 6 lbs 10 oz which they said was 60something %ile. They said they can be off by a lb either way with that ( and they were with Megan... They said she was 4 1/2-5 lbs and she was born a day layer weighing 5 lbs 14oz.)
I'm measuring 2 1/2 weeks ahead by private scan and 3 weeks by fundal height. Going to get an extra appointment to check fundal height again in a couple of weeks, and if it's still well ahead, get the amniotic fluid checked at a scan. Not too worried.
I've measured 4cm ahead since my doctor started measuring and she hasn't been too concerned. However, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes at 26 weeks so she sent me for a growth ultrasound yesterday to see what's going on. I think it's LOs position because I have been "big" the whole time. I've only gained 18lbs and 14 of those where in the first 15 weeks.
