  • I was never given an estimate at that point, but if they gain 1/2 a pound a week on average in the end that sounds about right. 1/2 times 10 more weeks is 5 lbs, so 5 lbs + 2 lbs 6 oz = 7 lbs 6 oz, right on average. Of course, weights based on ultrasounds are just guesses and can be quite a bit off.

  • I didn't have an ultrasound at that time and they didn't really tell me at my 20 week ultrasound. At 36 weeks with my oldest she was about 5lbs. Sorry I am not much help.

  • All babies gain weight differently. I'm 25 weeks and mine is at 2lbs now. If youre doctor wasn't concerned I wouldn't worry about it.
