krnj - February 2

Hi I'm 34 weeks and had an ultrasound done yesterday and my little guy is weighing at 5lbs 8oz. Does anyone know if is this considered big for 34 weeks? I won't see the dr till next week.

That sounds great to me. I've read that my baby should weigh a little over 3 pounds right now and I'm 31 weeks. I know that babies then start to gain 1/2 to 1 pound a week, so I would say you are right on target.

I was just concerned because I have gestational diabetes. Thanks ladies.

I had an ultrasound at 31 weeks and she was weighing 4lbs. My doc said this was 55-60th percentile. So I guess if babies gain 1/2 pound a week the last trimester (this is what I've read), then my daughter is about 5/12 lbs. this week (I'm also 34 weeks). With my first pregnancy, I had u/s at 28 weeks baby weighed 3lbs.4oz., and was 7lbs.4oz. at 37 weeks. He came late in the 38th week weighing 8lbs. 5oz.
