    Hi all,
    Well I am due to have yet another growth scan tomorrow (Tuesday) and am feeling slightly anxious to say the least!! :rofl:
    For those of you who know the history, my bubs has been measuring above average since the 12 week scan, and my fundal height has always been way over too. Have now had 2 Glucose Tolerance Tests, both of which appear to be normal, but for some reason, I seem to be growing a super size baby. Although I have always thought that my dates were wrong, and that I was approx 2 weeks further than the docs said.

    29 + 4 : estimated fetal weight = 4lb 5oz (average for time is 3lb)

    33 + 6 : estimated fetal weight = 8lb 11oz!!!!!!!! (average approx 4.5/5lb)

    35 + 5 : estimated fetal weight = PLACE YOUR BETS NOW!!!!!!

    I attach a pic of HUGE bumpy taken today, and would be really interested to see what everyone thinks bubs will weigh now.

    p.s.
    And yes, there is just the one in there, as I got the sonographer to check all around the back and sides, just in case another was hiding! :rofl:


    *UPDATE*

    Ok so scan went well, had a lovely sonographer who really took her time to explain everything she was looking at, and even gave me a free pic of bubs chubby cheeks! Anyway, bubs is looking very healthy and happy in there, but has grown some more.........

    estimated weight is now........

    10lb 2oz!!!!!!!

    So I have decided that when I see the consultant tmorrow I am going to ask for an induction, as I would still like to try for as natural a birth as possible, and avoid a c-section if I can, but that means that bubs needs to come out sooner rather than later. Fingers crossed eh?

    I hope they don't, as I don't think I can grow this bubs for much longer! lol The docs don't seem that concerned about actually having bubs, at the moment they're just more interested about why bubs is large, and can't seem to find a reason. When I see the consultant on Wednesday, I'm gonna ask about induction, as I'm really feeling uncomfortable now, and I'd rather still try for a natural (ish) birth than have to have a section. Although in the end as long as I get a healthy happy bubs at the end then that's all that matters.

    Shite babe....that bump looks very uncomfortable (oops, am I being rude:blush:) it just looks kinda very stretched and very heavy chick:hugs:. Does it itch a lot? Mine itches when it stretches that much:hissy:

    I'm guessing 9.6lbs and reckon they're gonna induce you. Have your dates been right?

    Wow....good luck babe:hug::hug::hug:

    Don't worry hun, that's not being rude, it IS a bloody big bump! :rofl: Apparently I've got lots of water in there too. Have managed ok up until about a week ago, but now I can really feel the weight of it in my hips, back etc. It hasn't been itchy though, just feels so tight.
    Got the scan tomorrow then follow up with the docs on Wednesday, and I hope they do agree to induction. Part of me is a bit dissappointed, as I would obviously rather that nature takes its course. But obviously if bubs stays in there too much longer, he/she will just continue to grow, and I'll prob end up having to have a section. After all, there has to be a limit to how much I can push out of my woo-hoo!
