  • hmm dunno yet with mine but I was told at my 30 week U/S that the baby was a full pd bigger than he should be. Made me feel better bc he was at risk for low birth weight! Guess i'll have to wait and see in a couple weeks! :)

  • I know COUNTLESS women who were told their babies were HUGE and the doctors were WRONG.
    It is just a tactic they use to get you "worried" about labor and birth, so they can try to talk you into EARLY INDUCTION. or even a C-Section.

  • I wouldn't worry too much. You'll be fine. :] As long as your babies not a 11-12 pounder, you'll be able to have them just fine!

  • They didn't tell me she'd be large, but they incorrectly estimated she'd be about 7.5 lbs. and she was only 6.

  • many women are told that they have "big babies" and need to be induced or have a c/s. and 95% of the time they were wrong about the weight.
    there is no such thing as having a baby "too big". women have had 11-12 pound babies vaginally. your body adjusts to it and stretches however much it needs too.
    dr's are very quick to induce or schedule a c/s.

    this website gives the best and worst reasons for inducing, "big baby" is a worst reason.

  • My doctor honestly thought I was going to have between a 9 and 10 pound baby.. she was only 7.3lbs at birth.. I opted for a c-section but that is because I was almost 43 weeks and could barely walk from hip pain and would not progress, she never dropped.
