So I had a growth scan yesterday (my previous pregnancy I was always measuring large for dates and had minimal shoulder dystocia during my DD's birth) and it showed that the baby is already measuring 38w3d and weighs 3.2kg or 7lb2oz. The ultrasound lady said that at 40 weeks the baby would probably weigh something like 4.2kg/just over 9 pounds. It's head circumference measured 40w3d. And it's abdominal circ was off the charts too.
With my dd I went into spontaneous labour at 37w3d and she weighed 3.6kg (which I think is quite heavy for that many weeks). I was due to have an induction a few days after she was actually born, I was quite relieved I managed to skip the induction tbh.
My question is, has anyone else measured this much further, and is there a chance I could go into labour earlier like with my dd? Do larger babies necessarily come earlier? Thanks.
