Baby's weight at 36 weeks and 40 weeks...


Just had a 40 week ultrasound and baby has only put on 1lb since my 36 week ultrasound.
Obviously, ultrasounds aren't too accurate...but what have others experienced?
Should I be worried?

Ultrasounds arenít notoriously accurate. Measurements can be off by a pretty huge percentage! Either way, at this point baby is ready to come out very soon!

For reference, my dd1 was born on 40+4 at 6lb, 6oz. She came out with an apgar of 10 and was perfectly healthy (although not too happy she had been evicted )

Oh and forgot to mention that she didnít grow a whole bunch between 36-40 weeks. They werenít worried, though.

Thanks. Anyone else with experience??
All other tests have been great. I have normal fluid levels, blood is flowing well through the cord, and he scored 8/8 on whatever test it is they do on his heartrate/movements.
