Default Follow up prenatal

So yesterday I had a follow up appointment for the cerclage that was put in a couple of weeks. So far so good. I can continue life as normal just nothing over the top, bouncy or extraneous ( of course). I gained one pound since the last appointment, baby's heart rate was 160 ( and gave the Dr. trouble for trying to find it. Baby that is. He/she wouldn't stop wiggling), and Dr. C said I was starting to measure on the big side. I am terrified having a 15 pound baby. DH's side of the family is known for having big babies. My neice was shy of 11 pounds when she was born.
Anyway it was a good, uneventful appointment and I go back again in four weeks. Monday is the big halfway point ultrasound, still trying to stick out for the surprise factor at the end!

I've never worried about being told baby's "on the big side" my OB said Chloe was going to be 9+lbs.... She was just under 8! I do know that it isn't uncommon to measure "big" if baby isn't head down yet. Don't stress
