at 29w4d LO measured 3.7 lbs, the Doc said 18 cm long- did he mean inches? This will be my first delivery, and at 40 years old! Also i am now 33 wks, running out of breathing room and bladder control, sitting is hard to do.... my next u/s will be in 4 days but i am still wondering how big he will be at a 40 wk birth, or if the doc will make me go early, or deliver by c-section. The doc keeps telling me he has seen larger but he will keep watching this one but doesn't see any reason y I cant have a natural delivery yet. How many weeks did you go until delivery? and what was the final size? was it via "c-section"?View Thread
at 29w 4d our LO was at 3.7 lbs and the doc said 18 CM length, did he mean inches? How much bigger will mine get (if I can continue to compare to your experience) if i continue this pace until 40 wks or should I expect an early c-section?View Thread
