Hi there didnt want to read and run.
im 33 weeks but showing 35 weeks i know its not as much of a jump as your showing, is there any chance your more weeks than you thought? im also back for another scan next mondayto check growth of baby, i had front waters gone sunday just gone so have been given steriods but been told baby could get bigger quicker because of this.
my 1st was 8lb 14oz a week late so im a little worried, im also having my scan around 34 weeks where they will decide from there, try not to worry and im happy to talk at any time, sorry i cant offer much more help xx

The way they measure your baby seems so inaccurate. I had my 35 week mw appointment yesterday and my graph shows my baby is on the 90th centile. It seems they've changed things since I had my 1st baby nearly 3 years ago. My fundal height was 34cm which I thought meant that I should be on track but my personalised growth chart shows big. I don't know why they do these things as they're so inaccurate & pointless. I'm choosing not to worry about mine & if he's still measuring big in 2 weeks I'll get a growth scan which I see as just another chance to see my baby. Not gonna stop me having a home birth. Don't let anyone scare you into having an induction unless that's what you want.
Forgot to mention that my daughter was born at 40+4 & was 6lb 10 so a 10lb baby would be a bit of a jump!!

I was measuring 4 weeks bigger had a growth scan and baby was measuring bigger
Head 4 weeks bigger
Legs week and half bigger
And abdomen 2 weeks bigger was told he was going to be a big boy but because I was having a elective c section they didnt seem worried
My fluid was on the high end too at 34 weeks he weighed 5lb 4oz
I had him at 39 weeks and he was 8lb 1oz
So not as big as they thought
Try not to worry too much I know its hard not too as I was worrying all the time
They do say with extra fluid to try to rest as much as possible as can make waters go early
I didnt listen tho and stilk rushing around its hard to rest with 2 others
Good luck hope all goes well x
