citymama, the midwife that did the test was very very clear with us that the weight the ultrasound came up with was in no way set in stone and that as the pregnancy progresses and the baby gets bigger it gets harder and harder to be accurate. She told us the only way to be sure of the weight of the baby is to have the baby in arms and put it on a scale.
But the fact is that the baby is big and it was a bit.....unsettling to actually hear a doctor tell you that baby might be
5kg. A very different experience from just hearing big baby or saying it myself.
I plan on uncorking some red wine tonight. I've been told by more than one person that it can help things start. I don't really like red wine but I feel it certainly can't hurt to try it.
I'm trying not to think about this but every so often it does creep into my head.....this baby could be 11lbs. But it isn't always on my mind.
I just love you guys to death for helping me put this in perspective and reassuring me.
