Big babies atau bayi dalam kandungan besar atau nama glamornya macrosomic…seseorang bayi itu boleh dikira macrosomic sekiranya berat bayi tersebut mencapai sekurang-kurangnya 4000 gram atau 4500 gram…wah…hampir sepaket beras 5 kilo tu…
Genetik ibu bapa…contohnya tinggi dan berat parents…
Jantina bayi…selalunya bayi lelaki lebih besar berbanding bayi perempuan…
Si ibu mengidap diabetes…
Akan tetapi, tanpa kehadiran factor-2 di atas ini pun, bayi macrosomic ini boleh terjadi…
Selalunya doctor akan mencadangkan untuk melakukan proses induce bagi kes-2 seperti ini…akan tetapi pihak American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists tidak menggalakkan induction kerana melalui kajian yg dibuat, kebanyakan ibu yang membuat induction ini akan berakhir dengan pembedahan…it’s all our choice…
Pengalaman ibu-2 yang melahirkan bayi macrosomic
A mother of two from Chicago, Illinois offers a great example. “Neither time did my midwife suspect a large baby,” says Trinter. “With my first, I never had an ultrasound and the weight was guessed to be (via palpation) to be about 7 pounds. I had a biophysical profile at 41 weeks and 5 days with my second, and he was estimated at 9 pounds — more than a pound less than he was.” Trinter’s daughter was 9 pounds, 6 ounces, while her son was 10 pounds, 4 ounces She gave birth to both children at home without complication.

She also welcomed /four/ bigger-than-average babies — none delivered by cesarean section. In fact, the biggest of the bunch (shown just after birth in the photo above right) was an 11-1/2 pounder who arrived so quickly, there was no time for medication at all! “When they first called out the weight from the other side of the room, I thought I’d misheard it, and asked my husband to come closer to me to tell me again”. The answer was the same: 11 pounds, 7-1/2 ounces. I was shocked… I expected a ten pound baby at the most. If it looks like your baby will be big, remember the only way to accurately tell a baby’s size is to weigh him after he’s born. Talk to your doctor or midwife about the potential benefits and risks of inducing, allowing labor to start naturally, and birthing a big baby. I tell everyone who asks how I did it the same thing. The answer is “Have faith in your body! It created this amazing little person already”. I think you need to give yourself every chance to finish the process as needed, and not according to a calendar.”
So, all mothers-to-be yang expect akan dapat ‘big babies’ ni risau lagi tak? Or dah makin bersemangat lepas baca apa yang Nancy Price cakap…hehehe…Gud luck ya….
