  • ? My baby is 5lbs 3 oz at 35 weeks, and my first daughter weighed 6 lbs 8oz at birth.

  • I would guess 7-8 pounds.

  • He'll weigh more than 5lbs.

    There is no way to tell. Ultrasound measurements are not completely accurate. They can be off up to 2lbs either way.

  • Depends on when he's born. But, yeah, more than 5lbs.

  • it's hard to tell because the ultrasounds can be hugely inaccurate. my son was measured at 6 pounds 4oz at 33 weeks, 11 pounds 3oz at 40 weeks, and was born at 41 weeks weighing 9lb 5oz

  • usually babies gain about 1/2 a pould a week before delivery. Thats just an average, but you can figure on that!

  • My Dr. told me that they gain a pound a week in the last month, so he could weigh around 9 lbs. But like other post stated, Ultrasound can be be off two pounds either way.

  • When I was about that far my DD weighted about 5lbs 4oz. When I delivered, she was 8lbs 4oz. She's 8 months old now and she's around 20-21lbs.
