How accurate was yours?

If you got an estimate on size of your baby via ultrasound, how accurate was it?
They're saying right now, at 37 weeks, that she's measuring at 8lbs 2 oz already! BUT I've heard by a ton of people that they were off by up to a couple pounds..
Just wondering if anyone here had a fairly accurate estimate :)

They told me 5lbs 5oz. Two days later at birth she was 6lbs 7oz. Weight determination is still In the beginning stages. Mine was 3 yrs ago so they might be better at it now.

I never had a late ultrasound.

I medievally glad I didn't with my deck d. He was 9lbs 10oz, and I had known anywhere near what he was I probably would have psyched myself out and convinced myself I wouldn't be able to deliver him. I was expecting him to be around 8lbs, because my first was 7lbs 5oz. NOPE! Lol

They told me both of mine were going to be 9 pounds if not 10, they were way off. They were both 7 pounds!

My estimates (both u/s and by fundal height/feel) were always WAY wrong. All of my babies were measured out to be a MIN of 9lbs and they were (in order) 7.12, 7.7, 6.10, 6.13 and 7.2-1/2. They did it to my sister as well, got her to induce a couple of days before her due date by scaring her into thinking she'd have a HUGE baby, she ended up with an emergency c-sec and a 6.13lb baby.

I had my 1st u\s a month ago and they guessed close to 5 pounds at 29 weeks. I go in for another in a couple more weeks..I will let you know!

My doc was dead on by feel...at my last appointment he estimated 8 and a half pounds and he was that exactly

My last U/S estimated he would be huge...like 10lbs+

I didnt have a late ultrasound with dd. But my OB said that ds would be over 9 pounds, (I was late). He was 8 lbs. 9 oz.
