So my last few dr. appointments my midwife has been saying I am "measuring big"- like one to two weeks ahead of where I should- and that I will more than likely have another ultrasound at around 36 weeks. This is my second baby (back to back pregnancies, my daughter is only 10 months old) and first was a perfectly normal (to me even small) size of 6 lb 13 oz and came out right on her due date. I am worried I'm going to get a 10 + lb baby and either have a really difficult delivery or have to get a c section, neither of which sounds like much fun. I know how Dr's estimates of size are notoriously wrong, but still. I asked the midwife what it would mean if they do the ultrasound and do discover he's big and all she really said was for me to watch what I'm eating...but no mention has been made of ME gaining too much weight, just the baby so now I'm totally confused. Anyone else have anything similar happen?
