I wonder if any of you have been there? I am 20 weeks pregnant with my 3rd baby and all is well except they told me at the 20 week scan that this one was 'a really good size'. When I asked the midwife what they meant she said I was having a big baby and it is already the size it should be at 23 weeks although there is no doubt I am only just 20 weeks preg. So now they want to give me a scan at 36 weeks and induce if the baby is ready. All that because I am rather petite and they think I might end up with a caesarian if I go into labour naturally at 40 weeks! I kind of knew it was a big one anyway. My bump was always 'undersize' during my previous pregnancies but now I look and feel more like 7 months pregnant! I had 2 easy natural births before and thought this one was going to be a breeze! My 1st daughter weighed 7 pounds (3kg250)at birth and my second 8 pounds 4 (3kg740) and they had warned me the third one could possibly be bigger but I didn't expect it to be so different! Anyone with a similar experience? Thanks!
