    that wasnt a very nice thing to say i would have cried lol
    when i had a growth scan at 34 week they told me my baby has a big head but they managed to refrain from any rude comments and said it was fine and nothing to worry about
    did they say or note down in you rnotes in the scan section the size of babys head
    our babys head circumferance was 339mm at 34 week and 340mm at 36 week

    I was told my LO has a big head

    At my 36 week check the head circumference was 330mm which is slightly above average but the BPD (temple to temple) was 98mm which is like the 99th percentile!!! Alien baby!!!! Everything else was measuring 36 weeks apart from BPD which measured 40 weeks!

    I don't mind having a big headed baby/child but I DO mind pushing it out my vagina!! :haha:

    Off topic, but can they measure the shoulders or no?

    What is head circumf "supposed" to be at 40 weeks?
