I have seen alot of questions about how much weight gain you should have but what about the baby? How big should the baby be. I have GD and at 26 weeks 4 days baby weighed 2.2lbs on U/s. Just wondering if this is a high weight or if it is ok. Go for another u/s monday. I should be 28 weeks 4 days. What is a good weight? My weight gain has been ok. Only about 16 lbs.

At 28 weeks the AVERAGE weight for a baby is 2lbs. Remember the u/s an only give you a estimate and its more often off than right on. A good site for that kind of info is: pregnancyguideonline.com/index.html

Thanks for the answer. I guess I have been really worried about having a 16lb baby!! I know I never will but it is always in my mind!

at 25 weeks my baby had an estimated weight of 2.5 lbs. I was scared of having a big baby but she only weighed 8lbs 4 oz. at birth. so i wouldn't freak out too much.

babycenter has good weekly updates with estimated average weights so that has been really helpful for me to know where my baby sort of is or should be. But of course every baby is different!
