Big babies.

Hey ladies I have a growth scan at 36 weeks as they are worried my boy is going to be big as he was 2lbs 14oz at 27 weeks and my bump has measured 4 weeks ahead since 30 weeks. Anyone whose had a big baby what were you offered birth wise as in being induced or c-sections etc? Would love to hear others experiences.

Hi! I wasn't allowed to pass my due date because they thought my baby was big, so I was induced. It is a long process, I get to 9cm but stopped there, so I ended up having an emergency c section and after the doctor took my baby out, he said she was stuck. I asked why did they do not recommend a c section straight away considering my baby was big for me and he said they are never sure 100% of how big is the baby and that was the reason to let me go through a normal delivery.

I was advised my baby was between 96-99% on the growth chart. I went into labour naturally the day before I was due to be induced at 39 weeks I had a lot of fluid though and he kept “floating” back up so I was taken for an emergency C-Section (Which I was terrified of) but it was actually absolutely fine. He was 9.2lbs when born Feel free to message me with any questions as sat at home by myself with little one snoring 😂

Mine was measuring 4 weeks ahead every time. My labor started naturally at 37 weeks and he ended up being 8lbs8oz! He would be quite huge if he made it till week 40. I had a vaginal birth, but at 40 I’d probably go with a c section.

My son was 8lbs 4ozs :) He was a big little baby. C-section because he was feet first lol Never turned.

I was placed on the big baby trial and induced early as baby was measuring big. Worst decision I ever made. I was stuck in for a week. The toughest, hardest, draining, most challenging week of my life and I vowed that I’d never put myself through it again. My baby weighed 9lb5oz born. Once I actually went into labour, it was really easy and he basically slid out wishing 2hours. I wouldn’t advise getting induced because of a big baby. The majority of the time they are easier to push out and you’ll have no difficulties whatsoever. Also as others said, I was on a ward full of people being induced for big babies. I was the only one who ended up having a big baby. The rest were all under 8lb! They can be so off! Xx
