    Had my scan! I'm 36+3 and baby currently weighs 7.641lb!!! (Estimated)
    wow!! That's gonna hurt!! Lol
    But she's ok and that's all that matters!! :D
    Can't wait to meet my chunky monkey :)

    Still have an appt on Monday 10th June to 'discuss possible inductions and options'
    I said what are the chance of me being induced, he said 'unlikely, it's more to discuss if and when'.
    So that's good news too.

    Hopefully I don't go over due!! :-/ lol

    Sorry....jumping in from Baby and Toddler!

    At my 36 wk scan, I was told my LO weighed just over 8lb and to expect at least a 10 maybe 11lb baby, as they tend to put on at least 1/2 a pound per wk by that point! I was absolutely terrified!!

    To cut a very long story short, my LO was born on his EDD weighing 7lb 13oz...they were WAY off! Working it back, at my 36 wk scan, he probably only weighed around 5lb 13oz.

    Please don't panic too much - the weight estimates are just that - estimates! xxx

    I had a textbook pregnancy, so they let me go naturally - and I was so glad I didn't go overdue as I was so worried about how big he was going to be! Luckily for me, he was average sized :) xx

    Ha ha a rubber ring! That did make me chuckle... Poor us!! Out of interest, how has this compare to ur belly measurements the midwife is doing? I'm measuring about a week behind so they told me it would be a pretty small baby.. But I'm not convinced! I get booted about so much I just think he's rolled into a ball. Xxx

    Also, just noticed your new profile pic makes it look like she has a full set of teeth! Maybe she's going to come out a toddler! Xxxx
