    hi hun,

    yeah im having this at the mo, Coby is above teh heavy line on teh growth chart, my midwife is worried im on course for a 9 to 10lb'er so im booked in for a growth scan on thursday.

    im not worried tho, if he is big or my dates are wrong then i get to meet him early, and if hes an ok size then at least i get to see him on a scan one last time.

    Me and jase were watching and feeling him move last night and we both think that he is long rather than heavy which is making him high on teh growth chart. soon find out!

    I had to go for a scan at 30 weeks and the estimated my babies weight at 4lb10oz!!!! Way bigger than a normal baby at 30 weeks.

    My dates are definitely right so they think it will be a biggy...

    I have to go for another scan in 2 weeks time to see what size it is then but I know it is still growing as my skin feels like its going to rip open.

    My dads side of the family were all really big baby's (between 11-13lbs on average), brings a tear to my eye thinking about it...
