    Am I right in thinkng they gain around 1/2lb a week form wk 36? Had scan today and estimate 7lb 4 now so due for induction 2 wks so if thats right be looking around 8lb 4 which can cope with as daughter was 8lb 2!!!!!!

    I have heard baby can gain anything from half and ounce to an ounce a day so that would make somewhere between a gain of a pound over 3 weeks or a pound in a fortnight roughly.

    Anyone know if this slows down once you go overdue? Just wondering given the placenta is getting less and less efficient at feeding from 38 weeks onwards and is designed to go to full term rather than beyond... (one of the reasons they normally induce by 42 weeks I think)
