You are ALMOST 36 weeks Steph on average babies only gain maybe half a pound a week. So given that ratio it is possible that Arthur may be 9 pounds. He could also slow down his weight gain between now and then and only be 8 pounds. Also at this stage Ultrasound is highly inaccurate for weight and is often off up to a pound either way. AND he is already engaged in your pelvis it is entirely possible he could run out of room and come early. (Ultimately its Arthur who decides when to come by running out of room and its his body that will release the hormones that start labor) You don't have Gestational Diabetes so there's no reason for a C Section. Do not let your Dr push you into one.
