It sounds like your baby is growing nicely! you can most likely count on an average size baby despite what the u/s says. not much longer!

Yeah, even with an ultrasound they're often off quite a bit with the weight guesses, so I wouldn't worry about him being too big.

He said the margin of error is about 10% so he said that means the baby could really be as little as.6lbs or as much as 7 lbs

But in any case even if the baby is big it's not like I will agree with induction or c/s without a better reason and frankly I don't think that's where my dr. is going.

But yes my sister was induced 10 days early due to big baby and my niece was not even 7 lbs. I Also know a girl that.was.scheduled for a c/s because supposedly her pelvis was too small and she's not a small girl. I Think it's crazy they didn't ev en try to seeif she could
