I've not got another scan booked yet but I'm hoping when i see a Diabetic consultant on Wednesday they'll book me in soonish.
Good luck with your appointment today. Please let us know how you get on. I'm 32 weeks and due growth scan next Thursday. Last scan baby was at the top of the growth measurement so I'm in the same boat as you. My sugars are good control but it's so disheartening to know that everything you do doesn't seem to be working. I have my fingers crossed for you and baby xxxx

Hey! I had a meeting with the consultants yesterday and they actually doubt she weighs that much and that she's just a bigger baby and not due to diabetes! Strange really but this is my first... Ive got another scan and clinic appointment in 2 weeks when they'll check her weight again and book my c section :) im getting excited now. Hope your appointment goes well!!! Let us know xx

Don’t beat yourself up about it, babies are greedy that’s all. My levels never went over 10 when I was pregnant and she just grew and grew it was nothing to do with my control it was just she liked to grow and grow.
You are doing amazing! Keep it up

Growth scans have around a 20% error margIn. At my 36 week scan they said baby was around 7lb 2 so I was expecting an 8Lb chunk. I gave birth to a 6 lb 11.5 Oz tiny dot two weeks later!

This!
And it doesn’t change anything blaming yourself. It’s a waste of your energy because it’s out of your hands completely.
