Baby coming early

I don’t know why but I just have a feeling that my baby is going to come early😅 I’m due the 8th of January but I was told last week she’s already head down and estimated 5lb2! I’m just worried she’s going to come early.

My boy has been head down since 18 weeks, im now 31 weeks and he’s still quite comfortable in there even though i had a 29 weeker last time 😅

@Alison After my appointment today it’s something I’m considering as well 😂 They’ve told me today that my iron levels are very low so I’ll have more bloods drawn in 2 weeks and if they haven’t gone up I’ll have to have infusions too, pregnancy has been a very interesting experience so far for sure!

@Kaz I'm trying to get a c section 🙈😅 I've been suffering with a chest infection since September .. technically the infection has passed (according to my bloods) but I still have all the symptoms, and don't think I have the breath in me for a natural labour 😂😂😂 tbf though, I have no idea how a c section scar will heal with regular coughing 😩😩😩

@Alison Yeah I had my GTT 2 weeks ago and it’s all clear, I’m the same no symptoms other than a chunky baby so they’re assuming he’s just going to be a big boy 😂 I’m hoping he does come early because the rate he’s growing I don’t want to be pushing him out at 40 weeks 😂

@Kaz have you not been referred for a glucose test because of it then?! I'm annoyed I have as I've already had one and it came back negative 😂 I know it could've developed between now and then, but I feel like he could just be a big baby and come early 😂 I have no other symptoms for diabetes - glucose in urine or anything like that 🙈

I have the same feeling, I’m due 7th Jan and was told 2 weeks ago baby was 4lb 10, so I’m now being monitored for gestational diabetes. I would be very happy to have an early baby now.

@Alison My boy is measuring the exact same! I’m 32+6 and he’s measuring 5lbs6oz as of today! My midwife said he’s going to be a nice chunky baby 😂

I'm exactly the same! Same due date and everything! I had a growth scan yesterday at 33 weeks and he's measuring at 37 weeks, 5lbs6ozs 🙈😅

I share your worry! I’m due 3rd January and am obsessively worried I’ll have a Christmas baby 😅

@Rach 🧿🧿🧿 it was at a growth scan last week, got another one booked for the 15th of December

My baby has been head down at every scan I've had even ones at 15 weeks etc I don't think it means anything about coming early. Was it growth scan?

I had the same feeling in my first pregnancy and the baby came at 42+2 😂
