My first baby was 13.5 lbs, and my ultrasound yesterday puts this baby at 14 lbs right now. I'm trying to find some support or information or at least someone out there who this has happened to. I'm feeling very alone and very sad right now because it seems like, unlike HELLP or pre-eclampsia or breech where it happens to multiple people, it seems like I'm literally the only person on earth who grows babies so big with no medical reason for it.
My first was very hands off and we didn't have any indication of unusual size until she was born. This one I have gone through an OB office and have been watched carefully and there is nothing I have done to cause this. My pregnancies are textbook perfect.
I'm scheduled for a c-section next week if the baby doesn't come on his own by then. I don't want it but I don't see another way. If I wait, I'm risking him growing even bigger and risking not having my doctor who I know and trust be the one to perform it.
I've tried searching macrosomia but all I find are threads full of well meaning people reassuring others that their bodies won't grow a baby so big it can't be born barring any medical factors. That's nice but it's not true. That is my normal, and seeing stuff like that just makes me feel bad, like I should be gung ho about VBACing regardless of the size. It makes me confused about what I should do.
