Just wondering if anyone can tell me roughly how much weight babies gain from 32 weeks onwards?
I had a scan yesterday and the babys estimated weight is 4 1/2 pounds. The consultant said the baby is measuring a little bit bigger than average.
Or maybe you can tell me what weight your babies were estimated to be at 32 weeks and then what was their weight when you had them.
I think i'm going to have a giant baby!! my DH is 6 foot and athletic build not fat at all. i'm 5 ft 6 inch and pre pregnancy a size 8. i've gained a stone so far throughout my pregnancy. My apetite has gone through the roof the last week or so. I don't mind putting weight on, but i am just wondering what size my baby might end up. I'm thinking a 9lb baby!!!
I'd love any info anyone has. THanks x
Yeah I think the average is 1lb every 2wks. But he could easily slow down and you could still end up with a smaller baby. My friend was measuring big, had a scan and was told she should expect an 8lb baby but it could be 1lb either way and then ended up with an 11lb baby. I've also had a friend who measured big, got scanned, was told she was going to have a huge baby and ended up with a little one that weighed 7lb. It all varies so much!
I had a scan monday, dead on 33 weeks and buba was measuring 4 1/2 lbs, having read across general 33 week pregnancy sites state baby should weigh on average 5lbs.....Id say all normal babes, remember these are an estimate.
I was told my son wojuld be 9lb 10oz and he came in at a whopping 7lb 2ozs....
i think the scans are so inaccurate. i was told at 31wks that my lo weighed 4lbs 9ozs and he was HUGE. then at just at 35wks he was at 6lbs which the placenta is working perfectly and no issues and was growing fine. but the baby was breathing the whole time and they couldn't get a good measurement on him and just kind of estimated. i have had 2 over 8lb babies and just kind of expect the same. we will find out soon enough. either way, they are exactly how they should be and are pure perfection!!! i have to admit i love big babies though.
i am sooooooo glad, that i am being left alone with these kind of measurements. no one in my birth center takes estimates on my babies weight or tries to measure. the only thing the midwife has done is check the fundal height every 4 weeks and there was nothing to worry there.
i just think all these baby weight measurements are sooo inaccurate. i haven't really come across anyone who was told their baby is 8 lbs and the baby came out weighing 8 lbs. it's always smaller or bigger than what people were told and so i'm glad that no one tells me these kind of things, so i don't have anything to worry about
i just looked at my pregnancy iphone app and for 32 weeks that gives a range of weight from 2lbs 14oz to 5lbs 8 oz, so all is good with your LO. they just come in so many sizes and with the first it's hard to tell what they'll come out like. your weight gain is nothing. co-worker has gained 35 lbs and just had her 6 lbs baby last week and that couple's stats fits yours.
i haven't gained any weight, still 1.8 pounds below pre-pregnancy weight as i lost a lot in first trimester and i look really small for 30+ weeks - many people still can't tell i'm pregnant, but then i'm 5'11... had midwife appointment today and she was already joking about me and my invisible 9 lbs baby both of FOB's mum's babies were over 9 lbs and i wasn't a small baby either, so it could be very likely i have a bigger baby... question is just where is she hiding???
don't worry yourself about the size of your bubs. i read bigger babies are easier to push out, so eat!!!
