I have PH but since baby now engaged and fluids reduced slightly they're classing me as normal. My baby is big as well but they wouldn't do another growth scan.
I spoke to a consultant and he said they won't do anything now till I'm 10 days over my due date. I'm so big I can hardly walk, my back is in agony. Then there's the skin on my tummy, it feels like a burn and is constantly sore.
You poor thing, I can only imagine how it must feel. I'm only 35 weeks with a big one and it is excruciating feeling this big. I think if you keep rocking up at the ante-natal day assessment and asking for monitoring and making a bit of nuisance of yourself they may well reconsider or at least give you a sweep. You shouldn't have to fuss but it looks like most of us do have to. Hang in there and let's hope the little one bahaves and comes out soon anyway.
I saw this and wanted to post. My friend was in a very similar position to you (she wouldn't mind me sharing in these circumstances I am sure) measuring very big and very uncomfortable.
She was refused a growth scan and had it not been for some early pre-eclampsia symptoms developing they would have left her to go overdue as well. However, baby was induced just before EDD, 11lb plus and she and baby did have a hard time at delivery.
Consultant acknowledged afterwards they should have done a growth scan just so they (and the MWs at delivery) were aware this was a big baby and could prepare accordingly (imagine how big baby might have been!).
My friend would say, with hindsight, she had every justification for asking for a second opinion when the consultant refused a growth scan (and he acknowledged this himself at her post-natal debrief).
Just to say, Mum and Baby are happy and healthy a year on, but don't feel afraid to query the consultants. A growth scan may not change their plan of care but at least everyone knows what to expect on the day.
