So I had an u/s done today and the doctor told me I'm measuring at 15 weeks 4days but my baby is measuring at around 17 weeks and weighs an estimate of 6 ounces when average is about 3 ounces! Wow that's a big baby I'm carrying. Lol I though my tummy looked bigger for how far along I was.

Ultrasounds aren't accurate.

Dd measured small and was estimated to be 7lbs4oz at 39w5d. She was born 10lbs8oz at 40w1d.

My baby girl has always measured big since her first ultrasound. They actually told me to prepare to deliver a little early.

Agree! Ultrasound said baby was 7 pounds. She was born two days later and was only 5.5 pounds. The tape measure the doc does over your belly is more accurate. My belly measured 35 weeks and she was born the size of a 35-week gestation baby.

At 19 weeks the ultrasound said ds was over a pound. At 29 weeks he evened out at over 3 pounds. He was born 6 pounds 3 oz at 37 weeks.


Ultra sounds can be spot on or super off.
