My doctor told me they could be waaaay off. I have gestational diabetes so last thursday i got one to make sure my lil man wasnt getting to big he was 4lb 9oz and i was just turning 35 weeks. But she told me the ultrasound might say hes 4'9 but he could be 8 something so u never know until he.gets here. But good luck if yours is that big :)

Thanks i was just wondering because i had ultrasound at 34 weeks and.they said he was 6lbs 4ounces and now i had a different tech and she didnt do half if the measurements the last tech did and she still came up with a weight. I was just wondering how.the get a weight without actually weighing the babies

My sister was told my youngest nephew would be over 8lbs just one week before he was born and he only weighed 6lbs 11oz
