Percentile: That's a little bit over average size. As long as your glucola was normal, I wouldn't be too concerned. If you want to try and avoid having the weight percentile go even higher consider eliminating simple sugar and sweets from your diet and limit carbohydrates (pasta, bread, rice, etc) High sugar and high carbs diet leads to increase baby weight gain in utero.
