Wow... I was told my little boy was right around 1 pound (16 oz) at my 20wk scan, though t they didn't say anything about it being a lot or anything.

After reading this I feel like maybe it is and I'm gonna be squeezing a pretty big baby out here in about 4 months. lol. I just wish I had a more obvious bump to show for it, already!

Mine was 10 oz at that stage, came out a healthy 7 lb 7oz baby. I don't think your baby will be huge, its just a few oz different. The measurment can be a little off too

At my 20 week scan she said baby was about 10oz and was measuring a little small but at thia stage, anything can happen and I could come back in a month and baby could be measuring ahead of due date.

For my 20 week scan I went in thinking I was going to be 19 weeks 6 ended up being 20 weeks 4. We found out we are having a little girl and she weighted 12 oz and is completely fine so far.

So, 13oz at 20 weeks doesn't rule out a girl then??? I just assumed as it seemed above average it would be a boy!! (I'd love another little girl, but more than happy with another boy) x

I think the internet size estimates(my app also said 10.5 was average at 20 weeks) are off. My baby measured 11oz at 19 weeks 6 days. He is in the 36th percentile for growth. 13oz is not particularly large for 20 weeks, but probably a bit above 50th percentile. At this stage size isn't really a good indicator of sex either.

US is a very poor estimate of weight at any point there have been countless numbers of women told to expect a 9lb+ baby just to have on thats 7 1/2 lbs, and likewise people told to expect a 7lber and out pops a 10lber days later. had they done a US to determine ds2's weight i would have been told to expect an 8lb baby when he was born at 10lb 12oz, simply because the measurement they use since they cant get accurate lenght when baby is all curled up is the chest measurement and he was quite normal around the chest and abdomen he was just super long

They also figure in arm and leg lengths, so that should account for a long baby (at least my MFM does) and head circumference.
