Measuring Big Very Big Baby Isn T Dropping

I am currently 38 weeks 1 day. At 32 weeks I had an ultrasound and baby was said to be 53%, so just average for weight, doctor estimated at that time he would weigh about 7.5lbds at 40 weeks. My belly is very high and sticks out front quite a bit. My uterus has always measured large. 36 weeks it was 38, 37 it was 40, and now at 38 weeks it is measuring 42!!! Doc said he is now concerned that I am measuring big and baby is not dropping at all. He said either baby is bigger than predicted and cannot fit into pelvis, or baby is normal size and pelvis is small so he will not fit. He scheduled an ultrasound for me tomorrow and if it confirms that one of those two reasons is why i am measuring big and baby is not dropping we need to schedule an pre-elective C-section. I am not scared of this especially if it is in the best interest of the baby. However I did hope for a natural delivery. Has anyone else ever measured so big??? Or has did anyones first baby ever take so long to drop??? Stories and advice would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

With my son i measured well over and never dropped until i went into labour, i was only in labour for 3.5 hours with only 30 minutes of pushing. although he was almost 10lb, his head was 3cm larger than average for a boy and had hardened due to being overdue and i swore i was never gonna have a nother baby, but here i am again. Good luck, im sure what ever happens will be for the best
