  • U/S can be way off....do not rely on those. Just continue on...and relax. It just means your baby is lacking and there are no slow develop issues.

  • You shouldn't sweetie. Ultrasounds can be way off when it comes to weight.

  • No need to be concerned. U/s are not always right on. They told me my daughter would be 8 pounds almost 9 and she came out barely 6 pounds. So no need for concern and no need to stress :)

  • Well they said about the same about my first born and when he was born he was only 7% for weight and the ultrasound for me was done at 30 weeks. My second the ultrasound said she was about 10% for weight at 27 weeks and she came out at 62%. Ultrasound weights are estimates only and can be off by plus or minus 20%. They like to play the big baby card to try to get women to induce early or agree to an unnecessary c-section.

  • They told me my son would be less then 5.5lbs at birth... Had an u/s 3 days before I had my son... he was born 6.5! So, I think they are way off when it comes to weight...

  • Not at all, ultrasounds can be off. They told me my daughter was going to be between 8lbs 12oz - 9lbs 12oz , she ended up being 8lbs 3oz lol.
