    Hubby and I pre-registered at the hospital today and the nurse checked out our LO via ultrasound to make sure everything's still looking good. LO is doing great and is estimated to be between 2500 and 2800 grams (roughly 5 lbs, 8 oz and 6 lbs, 3 oz) at 36+6.

    How big are your LOs estimated to be? :flower:

    I have a chart for estimate on my fundal height, at my appointment at 38-39 weeks I was measuring 39cm which puts bubs somewhere between 3500g and 4000g (7lb 12 and 8lb 14) if growth stays the same at birth she will likely be somewhere in the region of 9lb+

    The chart was pretty much spot on with Rosa to the point that when the MW weighed her at birth she had us guess the weight and I was spot on because I went by what the chart had guessed :haha:

    My mum didn't have GD either and I ended up being 9 lbs, 6 oz. -- so I'm quite surprised at how small my LO compares at the moment! :haha:

    I don't know how big LO is supposed to be now, but I thought my last one was about 7lb something but I've just been looking at his scrapbook and he was 8lb 6oz - I fear this baby may turn out to be even bigger!

    Interesting, midwives over here do no such thing as trying to measure the baby or the bump in low risk pregnancies. Guess it saves us some anxiety over supposed big babies :laugh2:

    my boy is measuring huge... at 36wks4days he was measuring 10lbs13oz. Now I realize that could be off in either direction, but still... Geez. I have to have a CSection (which I am not happy about) at 39 weeks. We'll see how off it was then. If he comes out in the 7-8lb range, I'm going to be really sad that I wasn't given the choice of a natural delivery.
