  • these u/s and other tests aren't that accurate. If everything looks good don't worry. Just make sure that you are eating healthy, drinking plenty of water and not donig things like drinking or smoking (that can cause low birth weight babies and other problems).

  • and to add... the 3rd trimester is the time the baby puts on weight... i forget how much, but thats their job during the last trimester. Your baby has about 3 months to gain its weight... and they do :)

  • At the end they gain almost half a pound a week. Basically the last month is just to fatten the baby up.

  • I agree. That weight sounds about right for seven months. The baby will continue to gain during the eighth month, and the last month-like said above-she will gain about a pound per week. So ur good to go! Congrats.
