We had our 36 week growth ultrasound today, and LO is measuring enormous. All measurements they took are greater than 97th percentile and estimated current weight is 8 pounds 9 ounces. He's currently measuring at about 40.5 weeks gestation.
I know that ultrasound measurements are notoriously bad this late in pregnancy, and I know that my baby could weigh a fair bit less than that right now - but by all accounts, he's a "big one."
My biggest concern at this point is what happens next with my doctor. Has anyone had similar measurements and what did your doctor recommend? The last thing our u/s tech said to us as we were leaving was that we should bring our date books with us to my next doctor's appointment because with this size we would most likely not be going another 4 weeks. The thought of induction and/or c-section being brought up this early really bothers me - based on something that's not at all scientific (particularly since I'd really like as few interventions as possible.) My doctor's appointment is not until this Friday.
Any similar stories or advice would be greatly appreciated!!! TIA.
