just went for my 37 week check up and everything looked good, but my doctor sent me for another ultrasound, becasue i am large for dates... so i went and sure enough my baby is 8lb 3oz estimate, how accurate are the sonographers. i am already measuring 41 weeks. and i still have 3 weeks to go!!!!

hey, my baby is measuring 3 weeks to big. i haven't done the ultrasound yet but they should be calling me soon. i am so scared now. especially since dr. doesn't induce before 40 weeks unless there's a medical reason. this isn't one she said. i would like to hear other stories on this too

well, last time I had the same thing, and they told me at 37 weeks the baby was 8lb 1oz and each day that went by I was scared, I didnt get induced and went 16 days past my dd thinking I was gonna have a 11lb baby, well she was only 7lb 2oz. I dont think they are accurate at all at the end!!!!

well jody, since we're on the same track here, you have to keep me informed and i will do the same:) try not to worry

crystal, will keep you informed, i'm trying not to let myself worry, my doc say how big baby is, is also determined by genetics and my family has a history of big babies.

When I had my daughter, the Doc said she was going to be an 8lb baby. She was 5 lbs 7 oz. Now with this baby, they say he is going to be around 8 lbs. I dont think they have any idea.

They were right a about my baby being big. Ultra sound always showed him to weigh pretty good size and I always measured a couple of weeks ahead - he was two days overdue and weighed 9 pounds, 4 ounces! Good Luck!

tubbybear, by what my dr. told me your baby was pretty normal. dr. told me the average baby weighs 7-9 pounds.

Well, he is/was the biggest of my four babies! I have three girls and they all weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces - my hubby weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces and I weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces also. I was just surprised to have such a big baby when none of the rest of us were that big!! My Dr always told me to go by your own instinct - All I did was worry! :)
