It is not uncommon for pregnant women to have a larger belly measurement towards the end of their pregnancy. However, if your belly measures 45cm at 40 weeks, it may indicate that you are carrying a larger baby or have excess amniotic fluid. While this is usually not a cause for concern, it is important to consult with your healthcare provider for further evaluation.
To manage any discomfort associated with a larger belly, consider the following tips:
Remember to attend all scheduled prenatal check-ups so that your healthcare provider can monitor the growth and development of your baby closely. They will be able to provide personalized advice based on your specific situation.
In rare cases where there may be concerns about delivering a larger baby vaginally, your healthcare provider may discuss the option of a cesarean section. This decision will be based on various factors, including your overall health and the estimated size of your baby.
Always consult with your healthcare provider for personalized guidance and to address any concerns you may have about your pregnancy.
