I am 37w6d have only gained 1-2lbs since my last growth u/s done at 34w3d. At the most recent u/s (Friday) I was told the baby weighs 9lbs and is measuring large and up to 41weeks in certain measurements. Is it possible for a baby to gain 2lbs in 3 weeks which would be more than I have gained? I am tested regularly for GD and it always comes back normal and I do not have preeclampsia. I will however be induced at 39 weeks due to a hx of hypertension. This is my first baby and all this talk of him being 'big' is making me very nervous. How do I not stress for the next week about his weight? Should I expect an 11lb baby at this point? Is there any reason why they won't induce me earlier?
