Does anyone remember how much their baby weighed at their 35 week ultrasound???? I had mine done the other day and they estimated 7lbs give or take a pound. The U/S tech could not believe my due date wasnt until DEC 21. The baby was measuring at the 38 week mark judging by the bone length and head size. My next appt is on tues. Since my youngest just turned 7 I dont remember how big he was at this stage. My OB already discussed induction with me due to how big my belly was measuring. So is this a normal weight or do you think shes bigger than normal.
Yeah I def know they can be off but its not just the U/S that was off its also the size of my belly from the outside thats measuring 2 1/2 weeks bigger....My last son was 9lbs and I almost had to have a c-section --I guess im just nervous that she might get too big and im going to end up in the same situation as last time.
Using U/S as a way to measure the weight of baby isn't accurate. They are frequently out by pounds. In fact, the ACOG says "Weighing the newborn after delivery is the only way to accurately diagnose macrosomia [big baby], because the prenatal diagnostic methods (assessment of maternal risk factors, clinical examination and ultrasonographic measurement of the fetus) remain imprecise."
My first daughter at 35 weeks was about 6 lbs. 5oz or so. She was measuring 3 weeks ahead and came out being 10.5 lbs. My son is doing the same thing. I had my 34 week appt yesterday and he was measuring 36 weeks. They are thinking 9 lbs
