How To Estimate Baby Weight

2 Replies
... - December 1

Today I had an ultrasound at the hospital (I'm 31.5wks) and I was hoping to get an estimate of how much he weighs, but the ultrasound tech said she couldn't tell me anything only the doctor was allowed to talk to me about the baby.... oooooohkay? Needless to say I was dissappointed, all she told me was that his head is 8.6 cm in diameter and that they usually get about 10cm (makes sense to me!). Anyways, from experience does anyone think that is about a normal size for his head, or any guesses on his weight?

My guess is somewhere around 5 pounds...maybe a little less...thats weird that they wouldnt tell you...they have always told me things like that...but then again you run into the techs that are straight to the rules...ask your doc when you go in...he will be able to tell you from the report...good luck

The ultrasound was because I was measuring large and the doctor thought maybe I had polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid). Well I just got off the phone with the doc and he said everything is fine, but I'm going to have a big baby! He said he's already at least 5lbs if not more and this is just week 31!!! I'm relieved everything is alright... but this baby is definitly taking after me (I was 10lbs!!)
