  • I was induced because I was told that I was going to have a baby over 9 lbs. Turns out, she was only 7.5. I will never induce due to baby size again since the ultrasounds and measurements are NOT 100% accurate.

  • dont worry mom, she is getting bigger and running out of room to move around a lot. It very typical and expected for movement to slow and become less as you approach delivery :)

  • ultra sounds can be up to 2 lbs off either way.

  • She getting bigger and has no room to move around thats why she's slow and sluggish.

  • She's just running out of room. Space is getting tight. Ultrasounds aren't always wrong with that stuff. My friend has 10lb babies and they were right every time. They are just taking precautions. Sometimes they'd rather be wrong than right in those situations. I'd go get it checked out even if it's just for peace of mind.
