  • Your doctor will know what’s best, my first i had natural weighed over 4 kgs.

  • Your doctor/OB/midwife will be able to answer this question for you as they will have all your medical history. They will monitor and ensure everything is ok.

  • i think your doc will be able to ease and fears that you have. they know your medical history :)

  • Please do seek reassurance if you need it from health professionals – my friend did and it really did help her to feel comfortable about her pregnancy.

  • As long as you are being monitored I wouldn’t worry too much. Check in regularly with your health practioner/s and I’m sure everything will be fine. Good luck.

  • My sister in law had this condition for all of her 3 children and then it went away after the births . I think it is best to ask the doctor that and they will monitor you regularly at checkups. I don’t think it has anything to do with the size or baby , it is more your hormones/sugar levels. Just touch base with your doctor and then you will always be up to date with your health , All the best .

  • Thanks for your comments yes i am being monitored i had the scan the other day and go back in 2wks for there opinion i use insulin 3x a day the scan said the tummy was above average and she was 2kg. So i checked average weights at 31wks and it said 1.5kg.

  • I agree with other peoples responses, it depends on how far along you are. I have had two friends that have had the same issues in pregnancy, one of them gave birth to a normal size bubs about 8lb and the other had a larger baby. But she new that was going to happeen due to measurements and she ended having a cesarian. Talk to your health care provider for better guidence.

  • It depends on the due date and your birthing professionals should be monitoring and giving you lots of advice on eating and size. I had a friend who was in a similar position and had a good delivery and the size of the baby was fine. Good Luck! :)

  • Not necessarily. How far along are you?

  • Whilst this may seem on the larger side, I don’t think there is a “too big” baby. Perhaps you should talk with your GP or obstetrician about your concerns as they are the best ones to advise on this.
