31 week weight estimate?


Has anyone had a growth scan at around 31 weeks? I've got my official one at 36 weeks but had a gift from work for a 4d ultrasound which I saved til now.. was amazing but I'm worried baby is gunna be huge! My first was 9lb 3 and I'm being monitored for growth this time but today at 31 weeks she was measuring 3lb 13 oz, femur length 5cm? Is this on track for another big baby?

Attatched a pic because it was so clear ❤

I'm having growth scans every 4 weeks .. at 28 weeks estimated 3lb and at 32 weeks estimated 5lb 3oz! I wouldn't worry too much I would say 3lb 13 sounds pretty normal .. I was also a preemie born at 29 weeks and I weighed 2lb 12 :-)

I'm slightly worried our baby is going to be huge as his estimate of 5lb was only 32 weeks ha ha!

At 29 weeks the estimate was 3lbs 2oz. I'd say that's average for gestation hun.

When we say 'Average' what sort of size baby does that mean? Sorry girls I know it sounds silly and I know I've gotta wait a few weeks for the 36 week one at the hospital but obviously I'm very anxious haha. Thanks for all the replies x

dd1 Was A 32weeker and Was 5lb3, DD2 was growth scanned at 30 week weighing 4lb5, 32 week weighing 5lb5 , then born via elcs at 38 weeks weighing 8lb5. So going on the rule of 1/2 lb p.w from 30 weeks I'd say our scans were accurate .xx

I had a scan when I was 28 weeks and baby was estimated as 2lb 8oz. That's measuring small on my growth chart just under 10th percentile. I think they expect me to have bigger babies as I'm tall. On an "average" growth chart she would have been on 28th percentile. So it depends on your size as well as to what they consider big or small. It doesn't sound too big to me. I read they are supposed to gain half a lb every week. Back again next week for another scan
