With ds2 I had a scan at 38 weeks and they estimated 8.7lbs. Went in for induction at 40+3 and the midwifes were all convinced by feeling him that he was at least 10lbs! But then he was born at 40+5 and weighed 8lbs on the dot.
At 41 weeks weight was estimated at either 9 or 9.5 pounds, can't remember which now. Born at 40+12 at 10lbs, 14.5oz. So they were quite a bit out. The private scan I had at 19 weeks was more accurate and I just added half a pound a week which pretty much put me bang on 10lbs for a 40 week gestation
