Big Baby

Standard

When we went for out 32 week scan my doctor said BIG BABY! He said she was getting very big and advised I went for a Gestational Diabetes test just to ensure there was nothing wrong with my sugar levels. He didn’t seem worried at all, as she was only 400g over the usual size, but was just being cautious. So I had to go and get blood taken- which I just loved :-s and then drink this sweet lemonade and wait an hour and be poked again and get more blood taken. Turns out everything is fine, shes just big. Shes not actually that big but the doc wont deliver her naturally if shes bigger than 4 kgs in case her shoulders get stuck. So I’m ok with that, although I really don’t want a C-section if its the best thing for us I’ll do it. Thankfully our doctor doesn’t like C-sections at all so he wont push it if not absolutely necessary. She was 2.9 at our last scan, which was 34 weeks- Im now 36 weeks and our next scan is Thursday. I don’t think she’ll be 4 kgs, the doc thinks she’ll be 3.7 which is a good size. I hope she comes in the next 2 weeks- Im a bit over this now!
