Ok, I feel kind of silly posting as I've been lurking on this DDC my entire pregnancy but really haven't posted much. I'm starting to really freak out though and am hoping for some good info from you wise mamas. A recap, I'm Mindy, I've got a 3.5 year old daughter and my due date for this next babe is 11/07/08--I'm at 37 weeks (I've been trying to change my sig to reflect all that but it's not letting me...).
Ok, so I am HUGE, at last week's appointment the doctor said I was measuring about a week too big and scheduled a u/s. The u/s tech said that by her estimation, my new babe is already 8.5 to 9.25 lbs!! OMG!! And I've still got, what, three weeks to go. Then I read on another thread about a baby breaking her collarbone in delivery because she was 9.5 lbs...I'm nervous that they're going to start pushing the c-section, especially because they've expressed mild concern about my weight gain.
I am terrified of a c-section.
Come on mamas--tell me about your big babies and how this is all going to be fine. Please?
