In Reply: Dr Blander argues that the patient should have had an elective cesarean delivery because the stillbirth weight was 10 lb (4530 g). I disagree, as the ability to predict fetal weight is poor.1 Furthermore, 10 lb (4530 g) is not an indication for an elective cesarean delivery in a patient who is not diabetic.1
