after being seen several times at my hospital for suspected 'large for dates' (all scans suggesting the same - baby big; on the 97th centile) today i paid for a private scan

(coincidentally with the top obstetrician at my hospital - although it's not his care i'm under)

anyway, his view is that i'm having a perfactly average sized baby. head a bit big, but nothing untoward. he anticipates me having a norml labour and delivery, and has removed me from the 'under consultant care' list and discharged me back to community mw care

so, precisely why have i been fannying around at the hospital for the last few weeks....?

saw he put 2/5 palpable in notes which i guess is good news...

Ahhh tutter thats good news! A couple of people I know have been told this only to have an average sized baby. Those scans can be up to 25% out!

(I got my 'Sod off back to your MW, you aren't that special, you know' four weeks ago and it felt marvellous so am glad you have one too)

Oh phew for you Tutter! I've just had a "sod off, you're normal" appointment with my consultant today (iron levels) and I tell you, I walked out on air

And well done, you're 3/5 engaged, beats me, I'm only 2/5 engaged ...
