Growth scans, bubs measuring big


Hi ladies do any of you have past experience with growth scans. I had my 2nd growth scan last week at 32weeks and babba is already measuring in at 5lb 8oz 😱.....and with quite a bit of growing left I wonder what weight he is going to be. I already have twins but they were born weighing 4.12 and 5.8, they did come at 34 weeks though so if I had got to full term with them I'm guessing they would have been big also. I certainly won't be needing tiny baby clothes like I did with the twins. Any growth scan stories will be much appreciated 😘

I had a growth scan at 36weeks and he was measuring 38weeks approx 6lbs6oz. They estimate somewhere around 10lb at 40weeks. I'm still measuring big for fundal height but the midwife is not too bothered. I am 😳 10lb is quite big! DD was 8lb5oz and 5 days overdue!

My twins were 6.8 each at 35 weeks and my dd was 7.9 at 36 weeks. I feel like if I make it full term this one will be huge!

I had a growth scan with my first DD, i can't remember exactly what weight they estimated at the scan but they did say she'd be around 9lb if i went full term. She was born on her due date weighing 9lb 3. DD 2 was 8lb 6 and half at 40+1.

DD1 has always been big/tall, she's just turned 6 and is the height of an 8 year old.x

I am in the same camp...measuring 7 lbs 9 oz at 35.5 weeks (90th percentile). Both of my dds were almost 10 lbs so this one is right on track!

Just had a scan today 32+1, and she's measuring 5lbs10oz! Also quite nervous! Dr is sending me for another glucose test tomorrow (passed the first at 28 weeks). Also noticed on the report that fluid was high (25.2), but dr didn't mention anything about that. Going for another scan in 2 weeks.

I had a scan at 31 weeks with ds1 and they estimated 5lbs. He was born at 32 weeks weighing 5lbs 8.5. Really accurate for us but I know they can be 1lb out either way x
