Just wondering if anyone else had a growth scan showing baby had a huge tummy? I'm 36 plus and her tummy is measuring more like 40 weeks and is off the growth charts. I'm re-doing glucose test tomorrow and if it's positive they may do planned c-section at 38 weeks instead of 39. I'm stewing about it as I did the glucose test at about 28 weeks and was init
DS was measuring large for dates, large tummy and head. Had the test and came back normal and he was born 8'11. And m sure you will be fine I don't think his tummy measuring 40 weeks is too large I think DS tummy was measuring about 39 weeks at 36/37. Natural to worry but I'm sure you are in good hands
Thanks for replying Puff Fingers crossed she is just big rather than suffering from too much glucose in my system. Her head and legs are fairly petite - it's just the tum! My son was 4kg at 38 weeks - with a huge head and tummy. I passed the test with him and they didn't ever re-test me. If it wasn't for the confusion over the first test this time round, I don't think I'd be worrying so much. Fingers crossed I get the results back quickly to put me out of my misery!
I had my growth scan today and my babys belly is measuring big..she said (exact words) - "fat baby, dont care. Average baby, dont care. Skinny baby, i care". She said he was just a little fatty so dont worry x
Thanks everyone! I repeated the glucose test this morning so will prob find out early next week if I passed. I didn't feel great after having the drink but managed not to be sick!
I'm so late in the pregnancy now that I'm not sure what they'll do apart from move my c-section forward a few days.
I'm hoping she is just chubby like my DS was - - although he also had a massive head! I passed test with him and I passed the test at 28 weeks with her. It was just somehow they mixed those results up which has just shaken my confidence a bit!
As harleysmammy said - they're really looking for the baby's who aren't growing. It's just given me something new to worry about on the home stretch!
CrunchieFeeling - hats off to you and all the GD mamas. As if pregnancy isn't enough of a slog without GD thrown in too!
I had a scan when I was 36 weeks with ds. His tummy was so big it was literally off the chart. The computer couldn't work out the stats and the sonographer had to work it out by hand. He was born at 36 weeks 6 days and weighed 8 lb 10. I'd been part of some research project that had tested for diabetes so know for sure I didn't have it.
