Another BIG baby!


So yea, looks like I am going to be having a second 9+ lb baby! At 30 weeks Remy is already measuring to be 3.7 lbs. Really hoping his weight slows down a little but doctors are already estimating a 10lb baby if I go to my due date...

DD was 4lb10oz at a growth scan at 33-34 weeks, she was born at 41+5 weighing 7lb1oz. I can't remember how much weight they're meant to put on near the end but she was at least half a pound smaller than expected if she was born at 40weeks

I wouldn't put too much into it.. I had a scan at 36 weeks and they said she was already over 7lb and were estimating 9lb + at birth. Even told me not to bother with newborn baby grows... She was 7.7lb when she was born despite my panic of a huge baby! 🙄

I had a scan at 29 weeks due to previously having very small babies/IUGR and baby weighs 3lb my estimate by 40 weeks is 8lb given that they supposedly gain 0.5lb per week. 3.7lb at 30 weeks doesn’t sound that big. My previous growth scans were always pretty accurate.

Subsequent babies do tend to be bigger... My first three babies were about the same size (7lb13oz, 7lb14oz, 7lb10oz), and my fourth and fifth were over a pound bigger than them (9lb2oz, 8lb15oz)! But none of their sizes were estimated correctly, with my smaller babies measuring much bigger and my bigger babies measuring much smaller. Sigh... They couldn't get it right with mine. ha. But my bigger babies were happier, better feeders, and much healthier. I hope yours are happy and healthy as can be, too.

Thanks ladies. I really would like a smaller baby just because pushing out such a large baby was very hard for me. It took just over 3 hours of solid pushing to get him out and I didn't get to see him for 30 minutes after he was born because they had to make sure that he was ok after all of it and that his shoulder didn't dislocate.

Right now he is measuring 2 weeks ahead in weight and size. My DS#1 was the same way. He was almost 3 weeks ahead when I was 38 weeks.

Growth scans can be majorly out so try not to worry too much.

I only had them in my fourth pregnancy because of polyhydramnios because they wanted to watch my fluid levels but they also measured the baby when they did. He was measuring 4lbs 3oz at 29 weeks and then I had another growth scan at 34 weeks when he was measuring 7lbs 1oz already. I ended up going into spontaneous labor the next week, which wasn't unusual due to the amount of fluid and baby I was carrying (between the two I was measuring 38-39 weeks already) and he was 7lbs 10.5oz so the growth scan was nearly spot on for me. I'd hate to see how much he would have weighed had I went to my due date
