I am getting an u/s at 37 wks to see how big our baby is. I was just wondering if anyone else had one around this time to see how big there little one was? Thanks for any info.

I read that by the end of 36 weeks baby should be weighing in around 5.5 pounds!

At 35 weeks 3 days my baby weighed 5.4 pounds and the doctor said she was on the small side or normal. ? I guess it varies.

about 5 1/2-6 lbs is a good weight for a 37 week old : ]

I delivered my last 2 at almost 37 wks and the day i turned 37 wks, one weighed 7#8oz., and the other weighed 7#5oz., I had to be induced with the last on the day I turned 37wks due to high bp.


Roary - May 23 gives weight estimates for different stages of pregnancy. I am not sure how accurate they are, Here is a weight unit converter as well. ... My little sister was born at 35 weeks gestation and weighed 6 lbs 4 oz. (granted she is a 6 foot tall 14 year old now!!!) I am getting an ultrasound at 35 weeks and am very curious to see what the estimates are on my baby's weight.

The first url is correct. The second one, you will need to put "common-conversions" and "convert-alpha" "ma__s.html"

well mine was estimated at 6lb13 (accurate within 15% either way, means around 6-8lb) at 35+5days and I am now 38+3...gonna be big if they let me go full term, ouch :)

at 36 weeks he weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce and that was a week ago so it looks like he is goin to be a big baby.

How are you ladies able to know baby's weight? u/s or just by dr's feeling your tummy. I haven't had an u/s since my 20th so I asked my midwife how much she weighs now and she said about 6 lbs which made me shocked caz I was only 34 weeks then. This week I went, the other midwife said 5 lbs! now i'm confused!

I live in the UK and mine was u/s. Had several due to problems earlier on then started monitoring growth and on MAX line for normal. There is small, medium and large "normal" and I am on the top line...116lbs pre-pregnant! They say u/s is accurate within 15% which is better odds than guessing by feeling your stomach. Depends whether they will do another u/s or not. I'm going to hospital tomorrow and going to try for another one, as I don't want to wait to 40wks and end up 10lbs

i just had a u/s at 38 weeks , and it said my dd was 6 lb 5 oz... this is around the 40% ... anything in a 25%-90% range is considered "normal" , although the scan can carry a 20% margin of error in either direction... hope this helps!

I had an u/s today at 37 weeks and found out my baby weighs 5 pounds 12 oz. The doctor said this is small, but scans are approximate. Hope, what did your baby's weight turn out to be at your scan?
