baby weighs almost 6 lbs at 31 weeks?!


Oh wow! Went in for a growth scan and baby weighs 5lbs 7 oz.. and the tech said "our machine actually measures smaller than it should so add a few oz to that! Hes close to 6 lbs!" Ahh!! She said hes about 3-4 weeks ahead of schedule and also said he is VERY low! Should I be preparing myself for an early baby?!

Do you have a really big bump? or feel like he's really heavy?

My bump is huge! And I can feel how big he is in there! I thought I was crazy thinking he was so heavy but I think I was right! I felt like he grew a ton in the past few weeks and my belly my weight and the ultrasound showed it! I know it could be off but honestly I have a feeling its spot on!

My baby is measuring at almost 7lbs yesterday though everyone keeps saying how neat my bump is though past 2/3 weeks I have noticed a really big different in size and how uncomfortable I am. Just hoping next few weeks arent too uncomfortable.

Are they giving you a section because of the size of baby?

sounds like it, dr might decide to induce you if they feel baby is getting too big. usualy done around 37 weeks.

I'm thinking they will do a c section because of size because I'm tiny and hes huge Lol! Good luck your so close hopefully the next few weeks arent bad! And they do usually only do two ultrasounds but since I'm a type 1 diabetic I get more no more they said now though but I guess I can take that as a good thing since they don't need to monitor anything!
