i was 37 weeks and 2 days when my baby weighed roughly 7lb2oz - is this big? she is 5 days ahead of her dates (she was 5 days behind so she has caught up 10 days of weight

well im no doctor, but they said my baby was big at 6bls2oz when i was 36 weeks. they said he was on the large side of normal, and he'll probably come out around 8lbs 10 oz. I think thats big, for me..im only 5'3 they think i'll probably need a c section, but we're going to try and get him out v____ally first

i come from a rather tall family. my parents are both 6 ft but my mothers bros and sisters range from 6'2 to 6'6 and my partners family are the same. i was expecting a long baby but i dont know about the weight ratio. im 5'9 myself so im quite tall (not as tall as them) do you think this will make a difference #(praying for a natural birth)

I think they put on around half a pound a week for the last month so your baby may be around 9lbs. I wouldn't rely too much on scans though they are wrong more often than not.

To carola I know a 5'3 lady who had a 11lbs 14oz baby, don't forget our bodies are made for child birth. I wouldn't worry about the weight ladies more so the head circ_mference!

I'm scared of the same thing. At 33 weeks I was in the hospital because of premature labour pains and was given steroids and an ultrasound. At 33 weeks they estimated my baby to be about 6 lbs. already. They measured her femur bone and her head etc and her head measured at 38 weeks gestation!!!!! as did her tummy and her chest measured at 36 weeks. I'm a wreck!
