    So true! Trust your instincts! Years ago, during my 5th pregnancy, I knew I was having a very large baby. My doctor did an ultrasound and told me I was only having a 7 lb baby. So I changed doctors during the last month. That doctor also did an in-office ultrasound and told me I was having only a 7 lb baby - "just lots of water". I delivered a 12 lb 4 oz. baby on my due date.

    Hospital ultrasounds are much more reliable than in office doctor ultrasounds. They have more advance machinery in hospitals and specialized ultrasound machinists.
