midwife seems to eager to get rid of me, not very sympathetic with my concerns and haven't seen them as much as I feel I should. I am worried about having a big baby as I have measured ahead on most occasions when I have been measured but midwife doesn't seem that bothered. I have an appointment 2 weeks before my due date and if I am still measuring big, I feel that this will be far too rushed to have a growth scan, then be induced/ C-section as if a scan shows baby to be big at 38 weeks, what will it be like at 40? Especially as I know people who have been sent for these scans at 36 weeks, then if baby does appear big, they have then been induced/ c- sectioned by 38 weeks. I feel let down and scared, it's my first baby so I am petrified as it is and I don't feel the midwife is very sympathetic, I am feeling quite down by it all. I just hope that the staff on the delivery suite are a little more sympathetic and understanding.
