  • That is way too soon to tell. And just because you have a large baby doesn't mean you won't go to term.

  • You won't know until the baby is born. My Dr swore up and down that I was going to have a 10+-pounder. He was 8lbs 5ozs.

  • I was told 9 pounds 2 ounces, delivered 7 pounds 4 ounces 10 days later

  • It is hard to tell how much a baby weighs when it's in utero. You shouldn't be thinking about delivering early- you're barely halfway through:)

  • No is the answer. I have a friend who is 38 wks now and had gained 32 lbs at 17 wks but only 4 more lbs since then. She is still not dialated at all and her baby weighed 19 oz then and was 6 inches long. Sometimes they get big then develop in the end. The lungs have to develop before they should be born and oh their brain. It is scary sometimes and even for me. I have had 4 successful births but 4 miscarriages also. Now I am prego again after the 4 miscarriages and I am scared. It isn't easy but I am trying to keep the stress level down.

  • My 3rd son was measuring 22 weeks (over a pound) at 18 weeks and was a bit on the big side weighing 8lbs 2.5 weeks early but certainly nothing huge.

  • There's no way to predict what you're asking.
