Curousity question..

Anyone that had a measurement of their babies size around 32-33 weeks...about how big was your baby at the time? I was told my baby girl is now 5lbs, 4oz. (What a growth spurt!!) What was your babies weight when your delivered?

  • I don't have personal experience here, but I can tell you that there's no reason to worry about your baby's size. You are very unlikely to grow a baby you can't birth (as long as you are able to push in an upright position) unless you have complications like rickets, a pelvic injury or diabetes. And ultrasound is notoriously horrible at guessing weights anyway, even ACOG says it's not a reason to induce or do a C-section because it's so terrible at estimating, and it's amazing what the body can do :)

  • Not worried really. Just curious. She had gained 2 pounds in less than a month so I'm just wondering if maybe I'm a bit further along than I thought to. Just speculating, which is fun :)
