  • All these ultrasounds are also estimates. I had an ultrasound 5 days before my daughter was born and they told be she already weighed 6 pounds 12 ounces. They were positive she would be over 7 pounds. She was born 6 pounds, 1 ounce. So it's not really an exact science!

  • That's not large. The baby only has 8 more weeks....It'll probably be around 8lbs. Ultrasounds aren't 100% accurate on weight either.
