I was wondering if anyone is experiencing anything similar. I am 28 weeks and measuring 3-5 weeks ahead of schedule. I am planning a home water birth, and yes this is my first so I have nothing to reference as far as belly or baby sizes. I had my kasier appt a few days ago and expressed concern over having a large baby. My kaiser midwife, who is pro-home birth (whom I found after going through 3 terrible midwifes and nurse practitioners) wants me to go get an ultrasound, but also is all for me trying at home and transferring if I stall out for long periods of time. I had an ultrasound at 20 weeks and the baby was measuring fine and confirmed our due date and we tracked everything very well, so i dont think its due date confusion. I wasn't showing at all 6 weeks ago, and now everyone is asking if I am having twins! I have gained 30 pounds, all to the belly. I am very fit, work out every day, eat most vegan, 100% vegetarian, and almost no sweets other than fruit and not spilling sugar in my urine, so I dont have GD. My HB midwife thinks it may be due to baby position. He is balled up under my ribs. I can palpate (and is actually visible to everyone, even through a sweatshirt) a butt under my left ribs and his feet constantly kick my right ribs. My belly looks terribly lopsided and protrudes higher than it should. His rear is practically touching my chest. At our 20 week ultrasound he preferred to ball up against my hip bones. So maybe the change in position causes change in size?
Long story short... anyone else experiencing or has experienced this? I just dont want my ability to attempt home birth taken away from me and possibly get forced into a precautionary c-section. Husband was supporting my home birth but is terrified of having to have the babies shoulder broken due to shoulder dystocia or getting stuck. I trust my midwives to transfer me if I fail to progress due to large baby but he doesnt want to have to pay cash for the home birth, if it looks like Im going to have to go to the hospital anyways. He would rather just get to the point I know the ultrasound is not really accurate either, as a fluctuation of 1 pound for a around 2 pound baby is huge.
Sorry for the rant.. Just in a panic and not sure what to do. I feel like Ive lost my confidence to be able to birth this kiddo on my own.
