Well I had a growth and flow scan done today, my fundus height is 2cm more than it should be, she said my baby is right on the mark his weight is 2lbs 8oz doesnt that seem a little large for almost 27 weeks?
I mean is head and femur(sorry if it spelt wrong) measures 27+5 weeks.
Can anyway tell me the normal size?
She said I am right on track.

At my 28 week scan, Jacob was 3 lb 8 oz. Measuring 3 weeks ahead. He was 6 lb 4 oz at 34 weeks and still measuring ahead.



It is all an estimate. Plus all babies grow at different rates, so 2-4 weeks either way isn't unusal. They usually only worry if baby has stopped growing or baby is much much bigger than gestiational age. More than a month usually. At least that is what I have been told.

Oh and average fetal weight at 27 weeks is 2-2.5 pounds.

I wouldn't trust those things, could be right but could be very off.



10 days prior to Vi being born she was "over 8 lbs" born 10 days later at 6 lbs 5 oz.
Day I had carter he was "atleast 9 lbs" born 7 lbs 10 oz.

That weight sounds about right though, my friend had her baby at 29 weeks and she was almost 3 lbs I believe. Or right at 3.
