Again, thank you so much!! I am currently 31 1/2 weeks and baby is measuring about 5 lbs.I love my high risk OB but she said there may be talk of a c-section or induction if she gets to 9-10lbs..I'm so scared of both.I also know measurments can be off and she said the same thing.I hope I get a chance for a natural birth.Whatever happens,I just want our little one to come out healthy :). May I message you as well?
