So at my appointment yesterday my midwife didn't like that I was measuring at 36 weeks even though I am closing in on 38 weeks, and she thought that the baby felt small (especially considering my first was over 9lbs), so she sent me in for an ultrasound to check on the size of the baby. She's typically really laid back, so I went along with it (also knowing that if I had a "surprise" big baby again that she is fine with me having a vaginal birth). I warned her that everyone told me with my first that there was no way I was going to have a big baby, and lo and behold he was huge. She was still worried, so off to ultrasound I went.
It turned out that I was measuring small because my fluid levels are on the low side and baby is sitting very low in my pelvis. Nothing alarming, I just want to make sure that I'm drinking enough. They estimated the size of baby girl at 7lbs 10oz...which I don't think is that small! I'm 38 weeks tomorrow and if I go to 40 weeks, that's another good pound that can go on her...plus they can be up to 20% off in weight, so she could be bigger...although I think MW still thinks she's on the smaller end of that margin of error. I'm amused by the fact that she's joking about how much of a "little" sister DS will have. It's funny how subjective "big" and "small" can be!!
Does anyone else have guesses about how "big" or "small" their baby is?
