Yeah, that's what they keep telling me too. It's not about the size so much as the ratio of head to body, and that large body can lead to shoulder dystoicia. I said, well what if it's really a small head?
(and the body is actually a "normal" size?)
I am supposed to have an ultra sound at 36 weeks. I was just diagnosed with GD at the end of 32 weeks, I am now 33 weeks. I can't decide what I want to do about the u/s. Bc I don't think I will believe them whatever they do guess the weight to be.
My last two kids were both 21 inches and about 8lb 10oz and born at 41 weeks.
