Well I went for my regular checkup today and happened to ask the doctor how big the baby is. He proceeded to feel the baby and say "he's a good 4.5-5 pounds" and then told me he is already head down. I said yikes! That's a big baby I'm only 32 weeks. And then he proceeded to tell me that he knew I wasent going to have a small baby! Gee thanks doc! So I have an ultrasound scheduled for next visit to get some more measurements. A little freaked out that I'm going to have a big baby!
Re: Big baby??
Second, those growth/size ultrasounds are notoriously off by up to two pounds in either direction. In fact, they're so inaccurate that ACOG says late 3rd trimester ultrasound should not be used to gauge the size of a baby and the size of a baby from a late 3rd tri u/s should not be used as justification for induction.
Take the measurements with a grain of salt and continue on your merry way.

My husband is 6'4" so I kind of just figure we're going to have a bigger baby... but thus far no one has told me I should be worried, or mentioned a higher c-section risk.
