So today I went for my 3rd ultrasound to measure the baby's growth. I had one at 8 weeks, one at 20 weeks, and now this one. I didn't test for gestational diabetes or anything but my doctor does a routine ultrasound in the 3rd tri (some docs don't). My DH and I were very excited to see what the predicted weight of the baby was....well they say he's 8.5lbs! Not going to be that, but thats what he is NOW! I'm only 36w5d and he's already measuring that big, and it makes me really nervous for labor! The first thing the u/s tech measured was his head and she says "Yeah that's measuring larger than average"...great!
With that said, all my fluid measurements looked normal, his spine looked normal and we got to see some fetal breathing which was really cool. The tech said his lungs looked really strong!
Don't get me wrong, I'm ecstatic to know our DS is healthy, but I can't help but get nervous about his size when it comes to my delivery....eeek!
