  • don't fully rely on ultrasound measurements for the weight of your baby. they said my baby was going to weigh 9 pounds at 40 weeks. she was 7 pounds and 5 ounces at 40 weeks and 3 days when she was born. i wouldn't do unneccessary medical interventions. let your body do it's thing and be patient. i'm due in 5 days and extremely uncomfortable EVERYWHERE. ....and I'm waiting for when my baby is ready!
