34 week scan..

Hi im booked in for a growth scan tomorrow and im getting really nervous because everyone constantly tells me im really big. My son whos 4 even says ive got a cow in my belly.. :(
With my son I didnt show at all but lost all the fluid around him by the time I was 36 weeks so had him early. Has anyone else had this and had an average size baby? Both me and my partner were 7lb4 when born but I was a month early.

everyone always tells me im huge but im measuring right were i should be my mid wife also had me get a scan done at 31 weeks for other reasons and baby is measuring right where he should be. So it could just be the way the baby is laying that makes you look big. Has your doctor said anything about your size?

I just had one at 32 weeks. I had been measuring Right On and that Appointment Measured me a week or two farther. scan show that he has long legs and a big belly but everything else is fine. they also said I have a lot of water so that could be why measuring big

I just had an ultrasound today for my 32 week check. She weighed in at 5 pounds 2 ounces which is big for now. But the doctor was fine with it. Just going to be a big baby. My only thought is at least I can blame my big belly on her and hopefully it will go away faster after haha
