    Didn't wanna r&r.
    I read that they put on about half pound a week at this stage ... Making your baby roughly 8 to 9lb at 40 week. Its big but not unheard of. My 1st was 7.5 and 2nd 8.13.
    Still if I were you armed with such info i'd probably be expecting and earlier appearance. :)

    Seems a good weight hun but these things aren't always accurate. Have usually been on target with all my measurements, had growth scan at 36 weeks and LO was 6.5 pounds.

    hi,

    at 28 weeks baby was weighing 2lb 12oz
    at 32 weeks baby was weighing 5lb 12oz
    at 36 weeks baby was weighing 7lb 8oz

    I have a section booked 39 weeks and they have estimated between 9 and 9 1/2lb. I have had extra growth scans as DD weighed 6lb 2oz at term. (saying this they also estimated her at 8-9lb) I personally think any estimate is +/- 2lb.

    In so far a coming early this is 2nd baby for me been 2/5 engaged at 30 weeks, fully engaged at 34 weeks, despite many signs of an early appearance i am 37 weeks tues and nothing.

    The main thing is your baby is gaining weight.
