How far off was the ultrasound estimated weight of your baby to what they actually weighed?

 At my doctor appointment on the 23rd they said my son weighed about 7.7 So I was just wondering.

What did they think your baby would weigh, and what did they actually weigh?

I recall 7 lbs being mentioned at one ultrasound, he was 8 lbs 10 oz at his birth.

Going by his size, they said he'd be born December 7th. He was born January 21st. 10lbs, 23".

It was pretty close.  The dr guessed about 8 pound babies (both kids) and my son came out 8lbs 3oz and my daughter 8lbs 2oz

The ultrasound measured my twins to be both 5 and a half pounds. A few hours later when they were actually born, they were both 4 and a half pounds.

When I was 8 months I beg my doctor to induce me, each appointment he said no cause my daughter would be under weight, my last one he said she should now be about 6 pounds, 3 days later I delivered a 8# 15oz baby girl. One more day and she'd been 9 pounds and my doctor whould have gotten punched LOL

Our first girl was supposedly a 9 lb huge headed baby. 2 days after my due date she was born weighing 6 lbs, 6.9 oz and a perfect round head.

Second girl was supposed to be 5 lbs even. She was born weighing 7 lbs, 15 ozs.

Youngest two girls were supposed to be over 7 lbs. They were both born weighing 6 lbs, 3 ozs 363 days apart.

Our son was supposed to weigh 9 lbs. He was 7 lbs, 15 ozs too.

Ultrasounds for weight aren't very accurate to me, lol.

They said my daughter was measuring about five pounds. She weighed 7 pounds. With my son they said he was a big baby, around 9 lbs. He was only 7.7lbs.
