  • It is very difficult for the doctors to actually tell how large the baby is. I was told my daughter would be 5 lbs at most and would probally have to stay at the hospital she was born 8 lbs 7 oz. So long as you are eating healthy I wouldn't worry to much about it.

  • well i was getting a sonagram done and that was my 2nd time going to get it cause the 1st time i went is to find out the sex of the baby and they asked me to come back because the baby was 7days underweight. Then i went back 4 weeks later like they asked and he was 5days underweight (didn't grow much) and he wont catch up. i am really hoping they are wrong and he will catch up.

  • He may catch up later on or is there the possibility that they are slightly off with your due date?

  • I was told my baby would be about 7 lbs at the most, he was 8 lbs 3 oz. Don't believe everything a doctor says about the baby's weight.

  • Doctors can only guess how much your baby will weigh. Some women are scared into believing that they'll have a 10-pound baby, but the baby comes out at like six pounds. They can only guess according to your due date, so I wouldn't be too worried =]
