At the anatomy scan he measured behind by a week. 32 week ultrasound he measured 2 days behind. Day before induction he measured right on track(41 weeks)



They estimated him the day before at 7lbs 3oz. Midwife estimated by feel that he wouldn't be more than 8lbs. He was 9lbs 15oz.

My son always measured big by 3 weeks, and came out average at 8.10 lbs 23 inches at 41 weeks.



My daughter measured 3 days ahead at 12 weeks, and then right on the dot at 20 weeks. She came at 8.3 lbs and 19 1/2 inches at 39 weeks.

I think his length really screwed things up, because he was an inch short of 2 feet, right... lol I don't know, they never measured his head.

Oh holy moly! Probably then because they usually do head circumference and femur length I believe.

He measured 4 weeks ahead. We did an U/S on the Friday before he was born, he was born Tuesday, they said about 10 pounds 2 ounces. He was born at 9 pounds 15 ounces. I was 38.5 when he was born.

My last u/s with my first son was at 37 weeks, I don't remember what they said he weighed then but she did say "at the rate he's growing he could be 11lbs by 40 weeks".. he was born at 39 weeks at 10lbs 3oz and 23 inches long.. This time baby is even bigger, if I make it to 40 weeks I'm guessing 12 lbs, he feels huge already and I'm only 33 weeks!
