Good Day
Do you have Diabetes. The baby is a little big. In such situations an elective Caesarian section is usually done to prevent birth complications like arrested labour, shoulder problems, etc. You need to keep your blood sugar under control as advised by the Doctor.

the weight of your baby is pretty good i would say. do not worry. i hope your sugar levels are under control and so is your blood pressure. other than that you must have been screened for thyroid disorder. when the baby is good size like with you, we get a few tests done to know that all is well in terms of maternal blood sugar, blood pressure and hypothyroidism. if everything is fine then in the above tests and the ultrasound rules out any gross congenital malformaton in the baby, there is nothing to be really worried about. you will however need a cesarian section to deliver your baby because big babies are at risk during vaginal delivery. so relax n just check that all your tests are within normal limits n let your gynaecologist decide when to do your delivery.
