When does baby start gaining 1/2 lb a week? Kass. 1 child; 2 angel babies; Ottawa, Ontario 11312 posts

Just wondering if anyone can recall when the baby starts to gain 1/2 a lb a week. This is coming from my being too lazy to walk to the bedroom to look in one of my books, lol. My last ultrasound was at 31weeks, 2 days, and my little girl was about 4lbs, so they said. She said that's perfect, but I'm wondering if we're going like this, how big is she gonna be at birth? hehe

I don't know about 1/2 pound, but the ticker on here says at 32 weeks you start gaining a full pound a week.

Baby gaines about a 1/2 oz a day from here until about 2 weeks before your DD. So ABOUT a half a lb a week give or take

No its still just a half a lb- YOU should be gaining a lb a week and half that is babies.
"The heavy news: you can expect your miracle-gro muffin to gain about a half a pound of weight per week from now until about two weeks before birth." thats from the 31 week update-

Hahahha, alright, PHEWWWWW....

I went and got my "your pregnancy, week by week" out too, I was in a panic, telling my husband we're gonna have a 12 lb baby LOL. GREEN GIANT! lol

Thanks James' Mommy, I went and read it too for 31 weeks, 1/2 a lb from now till 2 weeks before due date... if she's born at 40 weeks, we're looking at 7.5lbs. As for me gaining 1lb a week now, I've gained 7lbs as of 30weeks, so we shall see.... maybe it's gonna catch up with me, eeek
