Just got home from the doctors

She asked me if anyone called me about my ultrasound results (I had to have one almost 4 weeks ago to determine if I was measuring so large because of fluid). I said no, because no one ever said anything about it. She said Alek is looking great BUT is measuring in the 99th percentile for weight and height and at almost 4 weeks ago he was weighing in at over 7.5lbs. I know ultrasound is NOT an exact science, but coupled with the fact that today I was measuring even further ahead and we've determined this is not extra fluid she sent me for another gestational diabetes test and on Monday I have another ultrasound to see how much bigger he's gotten.

If my diabetes test is positive this time she wants to induce me. If it's negative she said she really hopes (for my sake) I go into labour in the next week or so before he gets exceptionally large and that if I *wanted* to book a csection after my ultrasound, it would be okay to do so. This is not something I plan on doing though, I fully intend on delivering vaginally and seeing how that goes. Anyways she said he's perfectly fine to come whenever he wants now so now I wait and see......

I think your determination to avoid a c-section speaks volumes. YOu can do it. Thankfully your doctor is comfortable with baby coming early.

You can totally do it! I've known two teeny women who have given birth to 10+ lb babies naturally. One at least planned for a NCB water birth, but the other one just had a super fast labor. She had no idea her baby was going to be almost 11 pounds

Good luck with the gestational diabetes testing! I think it's great that you're going to try for a vaginal birth first. Lots of women would be scared. I'm glad your doc is supportive of that choice for you, too.

You can totally do it! Our bodies were meant to birth whatever sized babies come out! And 8-9lb babies are pretty average it seems these days!
