Hey I am 34 weeks today. I had a scan 3 weeks ago and babies estimated weight was around the 50th centile with a slightly large abdominal circumference in the 90th centile. I had tested negative for gestational diabetes at 28 weeks, so no one was too concerned at that point. But I had another scan 2 days ago and baby had grown massively! Estimated weight is now 93rd centile and abdominal circumference is above the 97th centile. Everything else was normal, no polyhydramnios and I had another GD test which came back normal.
I was a big baby born at 41+3 weeks weighing 10lb 9oz and both my older siblings were over 9lb (mum never tested positive for GD) so is this just genetic? I'm 5'8" (68") with short legs (28") and a extra long abdomen with a wide pelvis (still plenty of space in there) is baby just growing to fill the space? I'm worried because the growth has happened at such a rapid rate. Can anyone else relate? What was the outcome? Is baby likely to continue growing at this rate?
