Well i had my growth scan today and OMG he is huge. Tech. Estimated him to be 9lbs2ounces already and I'm only 37weeks5days. But he is measuring 39 weeks. Yes i know ultrasounds can be off. But still, she even had to zoom out on the screen because he was so big he couldn't fit all on the screen lol. I'm kind of nervous though because she kept measuring his head and kept going back and looking at his brain. He is also still breech, he's sitting indian style. And OMG I'm in so much pain right now! Only a week and a half and hell be here =)

They estimated my LO at 7lbs 3oz. A week later I gave birth to her at 7lbs 9oz. Although they though she would be 10lbs at birth.

Yeah I wouldn't worry too much about the ultrasound. It is a seriously flawed technology this late in the game. There are just too many variables that make it really difficult to accurately determine much of anything. I had an ultrasound at 37 weeks with my daughter where I was told she was 7 lbs 14 oz. She was born almost FOUR WEEKS LATER weighing 6 lbs 15 ounces lol. And breech babies flip all the time shortly before or even during labor. My daughter that I was just talking about was breech until shortly before birth.

I was told my DD would end up weighing around 10 or 11 lbs. Lol. She was born at 38w3d , 8lbs 1oz. The way they measure them anything can cause it to be a little off. DD had a big head, so that threw them off. :D
