when?

IM 32 WEEKS PG, WHEN WILL I HAVE AN APPT SO THEY TELL ME HOW BIG MY BABY IS? WILL THEY ONLY DO THAT IF IM HAVING PROBLEMS? BECAUSE MY DR SAYS I WILL NOT GET ANOTHER ULTRASOUND UNLESS SOMETHING IS WRONG. HOW WILL I KNOW HOW BIG HE IS EXPECTED TO BE?

  • You'll just have to ask, unless they happen to mention it. They can only tell so much without looking, though, so I wouldn't worry about it. At my last appointment (on a Friday), they had told me my baby was between 7 1/2 and 8 pounds...and when he was born the following Monday he was 9 lbs 4 oz! They were planning on inducing me later in the big because they were worried about him getting too big! I'm glad we didn't know he was going to be that big because I probably would have had a c-section, though he's three months old now and I'm still not fully healed....

  • You won't! They will probably measure your belly at some point and feel around, but anything they tell you is an estimate. The docs were off by a pound with both my babies. Just one of the surprises to look forward to on delivery day!

  • with BOTH of my pregnancy's they NEVER told me! And truthfully, I didn't care. I mean, why worry about it? If there isn't a problem, I wouldn't worry about it. Why would u wanna worry knowing if you are going to have to push out a 7 lb or 13 lb baby!!

  • LOL, I didn't care so much, either...but people kept asking me, so I asked my doc so I'd have something to tell them!
