I'm currently 35wks pregnant with my 3rd child and had an ultrasound today they measured the bubs weight and he is currently measuring just over 3.5kg/8pounds. They said that I should expect, if I gave birth at 40wks, to have a baby that was 9.5 - 10pounds AT LEAST! Ouch!
Now I know that ultrasounds can be misguiding but there are several reasons I think they are pretty spot on:
1)They have been completely spot on regarding weight predictions for both my boys before.
2)My first son was 7pounds 13ounces, my second son was 9 pounds, I have been told to expect that each child will be larger.
3)I am measuring 42wks (42cm) at only 35wks and there is no extra fluid on board so it is all baby.
Just wondering if anyone managed to get an induction because of the size of the baby? When did they do the induction and how? Also wondering how you went about convincing the Dr?
Some additional info: I was told they would look at an induction as I have very fast labours but this wouldn't be until 39+2 days. I also have a pelvis that is 'falling apart' as the physio put it. It puts me in unbearable pain and means I can hardly walk, they said they couldn't do anything until after bubs delivery.
Thanks in advance.
