    I am currently 36wks +2days, had a gynie appointment today and LO's estimated weight was 2kg 700g, which if i worked out correctly is about 5lb 9oz. Anyone know how much weight the baby is surposed to gain between 36 and 40weeks? Is this about right for how far gone i am? obviously i understand it would only be an estimate so could swing either way.

    Not sure about how much bigger they should get - but I had a scan at 36+6. They measured baby to be between 4 1/2 & 5 lbs(small - by about 2-3 weeks).... I went into the hospital that night to start induction & Megan was born the next day. She weighed 5 lbs 14 oz.... so a whole pound off! So after that not sure how accurate those growth scans really are!
