  • A woman I worked with had her baby at 25 weeks and she was 2lbs. My pregnancy book says 2lbs 8oz is average at 28 weeks.

  • 27 weeks seems early to really be worrying about size though, so just relax.

  • Ultrasounds aren't always completely accurate. Your dr would be able to tell you what % that is on the growth charts for a baby at 27 weeks, just ask him/her. I had a "growth check" for my baby at 28 weeks and she was 3 lb, which was in the 65% for 28 weeks, so the weight of yours sounds fine.

  • please don't worry mama! most babies are born b/t 6 and 10 pounds aren't they? babies come in all different shapes and sizes, just like people!
    i am sure your baby is perfect : )
