Today I am 34 weeks and 5 days along, and I had a sizing ultrasound done today because I have gestational diabetes.
So I was expecting them to tell me the baby was around 2.5kg which is a little more than he should be for my gestation, but I figured having gestational diabetes would mean he would be a little bigger.
I've done really well maintaining my blood sugars at the right levels and my long term glucose testing shows that I've had perfect glucose control, but apparently I have a baby that is 3.1kg. He shouldn't be that big until 38 weeks. Having said that his leg and arm length are at the 38 weeks size too, so maybe he's just 'heavier' than normal because he's longer than normal.
But then I remember reading about other peoples experiences with sizing scans and sometimes they aren't always accurate, but then I had the scan at a King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth, which is the biggest maternity hospital in WA, so you'd think if anyone was going to get it right then they would.
Anyone have any insight or experiences they are willing to share with me?
I shouldn't start worrying about having a >4kg baby yet, my obstetrician appointment in on Monday, so I guess I'll be told more then. But I would love some reassurance that I'm not going to die from pain in labour LOL.
