Re: Doctor scared the hell outta me!
If they are that concerned about the weight of the child, request an ultrasound. A day before my son was born (I was 2 weeks overdue) they gave me an ultrasound to see how he was tolerating the womb. By comparing the thigh bone size and the cranium circumference (and maybe a couple of other things) they can estimate the child's weight. They told me an even 8 pds, and he was 8 lbs, 2.6 oz! First of all, the most weight gained is the last month or so, so ya, eat healthy. But don't let that doc worry you! you're almost there!~
