I've only had one rude comment about size so far but plenty about gender, amount of kids, and birth choice LOL strangers are the best...

Omgosh.. So you're measuring like 6 weeks ahead!? Are they going to do an ultrasound on you to see how big he really is? I know my friend is 39 weeks and just had an ultrasound to check growth cause she was measuring 4 weeks ahead.

Are you effaced? You should try taking some long walks!

They did a growth ultrasound at 35.4 weeks.. He was already over 7lbs then.. Not sure about effacement. I wasnt told anything about it but I do know I lost the mucous plug and Im dialated at least 1cm as of yesterday.. Ive been walking when I can in spurts around my super painful swollen feet and legs. Just ate some pineapple and going to make some raspberry leaf tea.. Hoping to get contractions going strong.

I'm lurking from Nov DDC but I wanted to say a couple things.

I was 110 lbs before I was prego with my first. They estimated her to be 6lbs she was 9lbs 9oz. I did it all naturally. I have also had 3 additional big babies vag. It's hard don't get me wrong but just stay optimistic that you can do this. I know it's not the case for everyone but it can be done. Big babies fit into clothes better also This boy I'm prego with now is already measuring 2 1/2 weeks ahead. But givin that I do have 9 lb babies they just tell me to expect another 9lbs.

I hope for your sake you go into labor soon. Also if your swollen at all then that will totally throw off there estimate of how big baby will be. And remember its just an estimate.

Hugs mama!!!!

I am guessing you are still on for tomorrow. Wishing you the best of luck. I wish they would offer to induce you and then do c/s if needed but you gotta do what you are comfortable with.
Your little man will be here soon!!

With my first I had GD and we did a planned section because they were estimating her at over 12 lbs. She ended up being 9 lbs 5 oz. I only wish I'd tried for a vaginal delivery because for this pregnancy I can't be induced because of the risk of rupture, so now I need to have another section next week because of preeclampsia.

Best of luck with your boy's arrival, no matter how he gets here.

I canceled the c section. I could have had him in my arms now but Im going to hope that I can have my natural birth and soon before he is really too big to come naturally. It's tough still being pregnant but hope he comes on his own very soon.
