goodluck with dr tomorrow
as a sufferer of gd throught out 2 pregnancies id say you have undiagnosed gd. id be talking to dr about the possibility tomorrow. might be a bit late for testing etc but extra precautions are required during birth for both of you where you have natural birth or csection. if you have looked after yourself with a good diet throught your pregnancy then that will help too.
My first daughter was supposedto be 8-9 pound and she was only 7pound 7ounces. this time around they tell me at 33 weeks dd weights 4 pound and will be close to 8 pound at birth (i have a private bet with myself that she will be between 6pound and 6.5pound when she is born but we will see). i dont hold much weight in growth scans personally.
Our bodies are designed for childbirth or so i keep being told lol but a girlfriend of mine had a daughter who was 11pound 4 ounces naturally with no trouble and she was a skinny thing!!!
will check back tomorrow to see how you go.

I know how you feel I have been told I have a huge baby also, I'm 30 weeks and look 40. People think I'm about to pop. I'm measuring 4 weeks ahead and so uncomfortable, having 2hr glucose test Monday. I don't think they would of let you go this far if the baby was that big, doc has already said to me if it keeps growing they will either induce me or csection me at 37-38 weeks.
I'm public patient also,

I measured 6 weeks ahead for nearly the last half of my pregnancy and my OB kept telling me how massive my DD was. He kept saying 10 pound easily and I didn't have GD.
C-section (for other reasons) at 38+4 and she was born 8'2
Good luck OP

Hi Mrs E, my growth scans at Mercy Melb were almost accurate to the gram! I vomitted up the glucose drink, too. Absolutely horrid, wasn't it! From my experience with the Mercy, they are very understanding and will listen to you. If you've elected to have a C, that's what will happen. If you elect to birth naturally, they'll let you try, though they'll prob advise against that due to the size of Bubs. There's no way they would force you to try to birth naturally with a super-large baby. Definitely they would advise a C anyway, in my limited experience. Try not to worry ~ though bubs sounds big, it will all be fine and your concerns will be listened too.
Let us know how your appointment goes...good luck.
