Topic: Being told baby was big...

Who here was told by their doctor that baby was measuring big? and were they right? my doctor said this little guy last week was measuring 8lbs already and was surprised by how big he was already.

Re: Being told baby was big...

My doctor said the same thing and they were right on, but they did say they could be off either way by a pound.  At 38 1/2 weeks my little guy was estimated to be 8 lbs. 2 oz.  and when he was born two weeks later he was 8 lbs. 14 oz.    His head was measuring at 40 weeks 2 days at that 38 week apt. so that contributed to his high weight estimate.

Re: Being told baby was big...

Boog was predicted to be 7-7.5 pounds.  He was 10.

Moose was predicted to be 8ish pounds, she was 9.7

Tiny was predicted to be about 9.5 pounds.  She was 7.

I hold no stock in how baby measures before birth anymore!

Re: Being told baby was big...

Mine was estimated at 8-9 pounds and was 5-14.

Re: Being told baby was big...

With the twins, the US a few days before estimated the babies at 5.5lbs and 6.5lbs. They were both EXACTLY that.
With M, the morning of my induction the US indicated he would be over 9lbs. He was 8lbs even.

Re: Being told baby was big...

As M was being born they estimated he was over 8 lbs.  He was born at 7 lbs.

Re: Being told baby was big...

Jack was measured between 7-8lbs and he was 9.8

I'm 5 ft and 110 lbs so I don't think they were anticipating a 9.5+ baby coming out of me....I knew he was enormous because I could barely move/walk and everyone thought I was being dramatic.

Re: Being told baby was big...

I was told my son was measuring large and weighed in at around 8 lbs already at 36 weeks.  He estimated him to be around 10 lbs at birth (39 weeks). He was 9lbs 14 oz.

After 9 yrs & 1 devastating loss, we got our BFP at 9DPO ~ and welcomed our beautiful son on Halloween! Best treat ever!!

Re: Being told baby was big...

I don't recall being given an exact weight, but was told at both 32 and 36 week ultrasounds that he could be a whopper  wink   However, at my 39 week appt, the doc I saw didn't necessarily agree.  He said he predicted the baby would be on the bigger side of average, but nothing huge.  Baby was 8 lbs 1 oz.  So, pretty solid, but not at all overly big.  His head was a different story, though!

Thanks ladies! so I guess some are right on and others aren't. Luca should be here Tuesday morning, so we'll see if the doctor was right. smile

Re: Being told baby was big...

My OB and ultrasound tech estimated Harrison (our 2nd son) would be over 9lbs. He was 9lbs 9oz when I had him at 39wks. My last ultrasound was at 38wks and at that time they estimated him at 9lbs.

Re: Being told baby was big...

I am 29 weeks and I am already being told he will be bigger than average. Whatever that means...

Re: Being told baby was big...

I started measuring big at around  6 months. He was 10.1 and born at 38 weeks. I cannot imagine going 2 more weeks. Hw would have looked like a 2 month old

Re: Being told baby was big...

They estimated both that I carried to be right at 8 lbs and they were 7 lbs 15 oz and 8 lbs 4 oz so pretty much right on.

Re: Being told baby was big...

When my oldest daughter was pregnant with her oldest, who will be 8 in 2 days, wow.  Anyhow, they told her while she was in labor that baby was going to be at least 8 1/2 lbs, they based this on the size of her head.  She was born with a big head but she only weighed 5 lbs 9 oz lol

Re: Being told baby was big...

We were told around 7lbs, and she was born 6.13, so pretty spot on for us.
