I know there have been threads on this one before BUT due date approaching and getting anxious!!
My bump is really quite big and so they tested me for gestational diabetes. glad to say have not developed this condition but now am worried about the size this baby will be. My first ds was 9lb ½oz! Please ..... anyone with any answers!!
My experience was that the whole way through i was MASSIVE! I was measuring 3cm bigger than i should be all the way through and 3 different doctors told me on the day they induced me the "this is going to be a big baby". Went for a scan on the day of inducement and DD measured 6 1/2 pound but was born at 5lb 7oz at 39 weeks!
Nope. Both bumps huge but children have been 7 lb 12 oz and 8 lb 4 oz which is about average I think. Have flooded the delivery room floor though . I didn't have gestational diabetes either. My mum says she was the same funnily enough, so I think that its just the way I'm designed to carry babies .
Try not to worry spilla. DS was 9 lb 10 oz and I was told to expect a bigger second baby. DD was born 8 lb 12 oz. And having had the way prepared by a big baby, I found DD's birth very easy. The second stage was less than 5 minutes compared with above 2 hours for DS.
Thanks for all your replies - i feel a little better but still think that I'm having another whopper. First was by emergency c-section due to placenta praevia but was hoping to deliver normally this time - may not be able to if too big!!

Same here - massive bump, massive all over - baba was 5lb 3oz full term. Thought I had done something wrong but consultant discovered that I only had a two vessel chord instead of three so my baby was not being nourished properly in the last few weeks.
