Post subject: large baby at 31 weks!!!!!
This is my third baby, and i am 31 weeks pregnant.
We recently had to go back for a ultrascan at 31 weeks to monitor cronoid cysts, which thankfully have cleared up, but the sonographer has recomended that we return in two weeks as the baby is estimated at 2238grams, or 7.2 pounds.
now, i had a msg on my machine to call our ob back, but the office was closed by the time i returned home. is this a problem having a baby so large, there is absolutly no mistaking my dates due to health issues.
any ideas???? my first baby weighed 8pounds, and my second was 7.6lb no wonder i feel like i'm about to deliver!!!!
i still have 9 more weeks!!!!
:shock: :shock: :shock:

goodness me. you are growing a little lump!!
no one canm really give you info on this, only the medical professionals that are dealin with your situation.
do you have gestational diabeties???
if babys around the 7lb mark now then it'll be about 9lb born which is becomin the more common of weights for babies these days.
keep us posted on what they say xxx
