Big... Again

I went to my 32 week dr. appt. the other day.  I am still measuring big.  After an ultrasound, the average of all the measurements has this little guy at 33 weeks. Not too much of a difference so the due date remains the same.  His head and belly are measuring between 34 and 35 weeks!  Dr. says to expect another 9+ lb. baby.  Thats pretty big up here in Denver, especially since I am only 5' tall.

I feel your pain.  My doctors ordered an ultrasound at 31 weeks because I was measuring big.  My little girl was measuring good they said but she weight about 3lbs 13oz which seemed a little on the big side to me so we will see.  Everybody keeps looking at me and tells me that there is no way I am making it to full term.  I am now 33 weeks so we will see!!!!  I am just 5'3" but my husband is 6' 3" so I may just have a big baby.  Good luck and I wish you the best of luck.

Went to the 34 week appt and still measuring about 2 weeks ahead.  Contractions are abundant but not progressive or painful. Hard to take it easy with a 15 month old running around everywhere!

Yep, at 37 weeks I measured 42 ... Seriously?  At 36 the doc guessed baby was already over 8 pounds. I'm terrified!!!
