Someone in my DDC was told at her 20 week ultrasound that her baby is 'big' and weighs a lot for the gestational age. Already!!! Wow, jsut wow.

Can you see the writing on the wall?

I hate that dr's say stuff like this, KNOWING that they could be a pound off in either direction. HOnestly... a pound is ALOT when it comes to babies in the womb. Why do they consider it reliable??

Every time I've seen a lady "induced for a large baby" the baby comes out being like 8 lbs. I wasn't aware that 8 lbs was big! I thought it was right on average

I think up to 10 lb 4 ounces is 'average'.

But how can you possibly tell a woman that is only 20 weeks she has a big baby?!?!?!?

I am so glad I measured a week behind! I knew I would based on conception, but it should give me a little leeway in the end.

Oh brother!! They tried to do that to me too when I went in for my gender scan (not my drs office, but ordered by my dr)....they asked me if I have big babies b/c he was measuring at 13oz already.

I wonder how women ever delivered thier children in the old days, there must have been at been a lot of "big babies" getting stuck

I saw several of the "big babies" in my PR come out at only 7lbs, and these women were induced a week before thier due date because of it.

This is exactly what I'm talking about! And I saw one lady who had a baby that was just barely 8 lbs who was oggling at how she was able to push out "such a big baby". 8 lbs is not big! Gah dr's these days are all about convenience and not getting sued that they don't take into account what's best for the mom and the baby!

They better go ahead and set up an induction date. We wouldnt want that baby getting over a couple of pounds.

I believe it. Argh.... My good friend was told at her 20 week appt that her baby would be AT LEAST 8.5 lbs if she went to terms. She is short so naturally that scared the heck out of her.

She developed GD so they were expected a huge baby and induced her a week before her due date. He was a whopping 6 lbs 12 oz.... and born by c-section.

Good thing it was a c-section. That baby would have gotten stuck for sure!

OH good grief. Adrienne beat me to it with the one lb either way comment... I was so fortunate with my son's doctor... they never said a word about it, and they let me know this time that the baby is measuring great, maybe a touch big, but they're not concerned, since I seem to do just fine through birth. My first son was 8 lbs 7 oz, so yeah, I think I'll be JUST fine, thankyouverymuch!

Why do places like that insist on scaring mothers like that? I'd almost think doing so would be considered more of a malpractice than not saying anything altogether!
