  • 5.73lbs is 2.6kgs Thats normal.. some babies are small some bigger it depends on the baby and how healthy the mom is. how soon the baby comes out,.. my nephew was smaller then that when he was born :P.. my kids were bigger. so my kids were prob that size at 33 weeks

  • It is a Guesstimate and mode of measuring isn't accurate...
    So have fun exploring and playing around with it, don't take it too seriously.
    Avoiding unnecessary interventions ( like U/Ss and vagnal exams) is good, too, as these can bring confusing and misunderstanding. Needless worry.
