  • The docs extimates can be around 2 pounds off. But about a pound sounds right.

  • Ultrasounds can be off. I had one and they said my baby was "well over 10lbs" and he was 9lbs. With my last baby they said she was well over 8.5 lbs and she was 7lbs 5 oz. I think they actually estimate the weight based on the height of the baby. So lets say youre tall or dad is, the baby maybe long which will throw off how big the baby is on the ultrasound.
