    wow thats big!!!

    being as your messureing that big and your only 37 weeks, im suprised they didnt offer an induction!

    but if your midwife belives you can deliver then she prob knows what shes on about.

    still i can imagin thats a pretty scarey thought!

    Hiya hun

    Firstly, Im very surprised that they havnt taken you in with such a high BP. Normally the 95 is the knock off point. Perhaps if it continues to stay high they will do like you say. To reduce your blood pressure, drink stacks of water (and i mean stacks) Lie on your left hand side all the time and rest, rest and more rest. Mine went down from 148/94 down to 125/70 in days cos I did this.

    Something that I have heard on more than one occasion that might make you feel a little bit better (my baby is big too) is that Labour can actually be easier because the baby is bigger and therefore finds it easier to push itself out. (dont know how true this is...??)

    Keep us posted !!

    When my midwife last measured me she said i was measuring at 36 cm which would be normal if i was 36 weeks but was only 32 weeks! went for a scan and baby was only 4lbs!!! so maybe you will be ok :? :lol:

    Good luck !

    Hi i thought i would share some info i was given yesterday when i went for my 20wk scan.

    I was asking whether she could tell whether the baby was going to be big or not. she said that bigger babies are lovely and i said "yeah once they are out!!"
    then she put my mind at rest by saying that the hardest part is getting the head out and that labour pains are the same whatever the size of the baby. She said that it isn't true that bigger babies are more painful because the head is literally only a millimetre or so different in size.

    i'm expecting a big baby!! x
