Anyone have large babies?
My first was 9 lbs 6 oz. when he was born at 40 weeks 5 days. I had no complications, I was within the 25-35 lb weight gain range. This pregnancy I am 19 weeks and gained about 3 lbs so far but this baby is also measuring large. I was tested for diabetes during my first pregnancy and passed the test, my son was tested after birth because he was large and he also passed. But now his pediatrician is concerned about his growth. He turned 2 in September and he weighs 38 lbs and is 37 inches tall. I just had an ultrasound today and this baby is measuring large so they want to monitor the baby’s growth but they think it will be the same situation as the first.
I’m starting to get worried! Should I be concerned about genetic conditions or is it normal for some people to just make large babies?? I’m 5’10” and come from tall people. I now weigh about 210 so I am overweight but only since having my son have I started gaining weight, I wasn’t overweight during the rest of my life.
I guess I’m just looking for reassurance??
