Girls... baby no 3 on his way.. long time to go yet but at the 20 wk scan they said he's measuring in the 95th centile already!! have 4 more scans booked already. i'm only 5ft and looking like im ready to drop already and feel baby no 1 7.6 baby no 2 9.1 and they say this time could be anything up to 12lbs... ouch im thinking already and clenching at the thought!! wink anyone else been told your having a biggie too???

Yes dd was 91b 3oz. I am currently 36 weeks and measured today at 40 weeks. Midwife is not concerned, just said well it feels big, but you already had a big one so you knopw your body can do it, so dont worry.
But I read lots of articles that says I should be reffered for a scan to see how big.

Am also 22 weeks with #3 and at my scan the baby is showing to be on the 97th centile in all areas!!

1st baby 6lb 12oz born at 38+4
2nd baby 8lb 12oz born at 40+4

so who knows how big this one will be!

No dont know what I am having. Although the suspense is getting to me you??
I have booked in for home water birth so asked if it was a problem that this baby could be a lot bigger, she said no.
However on a different note I have 4 midwifes coming to see me tomorow regarding this water birth.
They want to talk me into getting out to deliver.

Yep.. we;re having a boy going to call him james... so jealous your going to have a home water birth.. they wont let me have a home birth let alone a water birth...
bloody stay in to deliver if you want too i would love to do that... ooh im excited for you already!!

boobat Wed 06-Aug-08 22:38:12

Due date 10th Dec and am hoping for a VBA2C. When are you due and how old are your other children? I have a just 3 year old and a 19 month old so will have 3 under 3 and half come December, I will be busy!!

anniepan Wed 06-Aug-08 23:30:30

Great!!! due 9th dec... tom is 11 and jack is 8 so big age gap.. at least they'll be able to help.. although i cant imagine getting them to different schools by 8.30 in the morning and be breast feeding!!! lol last time i could stay in my night clothes all day if i wanted .. no such luck this time!!!
you'll be a busy bee... !!! great though isnt it!!

Boobat wow you will be busy.
My dd is nearly 18 months and I keep wondering how will I cope. grin
Looking forward to it.
Anniepan I am dreading the school run full stop. Never mind going to different schools.
Sounds nightmare but I am sure you will do it.
Good luck to you both. smile

The measurements on scans have a huge margin of error so don't worry too much. My son was supposed to be 10lb+ but was only 8lb 3.

The baby I'm having now is supposed to be very long and skinny but I suspect that she is small as I've put on very little weight and could still get into pre-pregnancy jeans at 6.5 months.

Boobat, good luck with 3 under 4. You're going to have your hands full. I thought 2 under 2 would be bad

Good luck everyone

anniepan - I know I am already thinking about juggling the breastfeeding with getting the 3 year old to pre-school with the 2 younger ones in the buggy, think I will be using the sling a lot and the baby will just have to slot in I guess!

ajm200 - 2 under 2 was not too bad, my eldest was 17 months when #2 came along so has known no different really.

Good luck everyone.

Boobat, my eldest will be just 4 (days before baby is due) then I will ahve 2.5 year old and newborn.

Surprisingly Im really looking forward to it, apart from the kids poking the baby! DH has a new baby brother and every visit im crapping it they will pull him or do something, but maybe thats because its someone elses baby? Ill probably be more chilled with my own.

don't worry about it!! I was told to expect a 9lber and 2 days later gave birth to 6lb 11oz ds3
