Almost 20 weeks and baby only 7 ozs
As I said, I am almost 20 weeks pregnant. I am having a baby girl. At my ultrasound today I was told she weighed 7 ozs. The ultrasound tech didn't say anything was wrong but that seems a little low to me. Should my baby be weighing more at this point? I'm a first time mom so every little thing makes me nervous. TIA :)

10oz is about average at 20 weeks! But every baby is different and develops at different rates, my little girl has always measured small but Is fine and healthy. She's got plenty time to catch up but don't forget these scans only estimate weight!

Babys gain most of their weight towards the end of the pregnancy. All babies grow differently, 16 oz is a pound so 7oz at 20 weeks sounds healthy if the baby has 20 more weeks to gain about 6 pounds.

At my 19 week my baby girl was at 13 ounces. I'm now 24+3 and will have her weight checked at the next ultrasound when I am 27+4

Actually that's about normal, maybe a little on the smaller side.

I had my scan at 21 wks and was told baby was about a pound..ultrasound estimates are not always accurate though so don't worry about what they say..! Ur doc is the one 2 call u if something is abnormal.. Or u should ask ur doc so he/she can let u know what they think just 2 put ur heart at ease but usually they never mention it unless it's something serious.

I had my scan at 18+3 with a girl and she weighed 9oz then at 20+4 I had my dr app and he told me my fluids are low and my baby might be small. I find out tomorrow if everything alright and how much she weighs again

Wait and ask your doctor.  Ultrasound techs are there to take pictures, sometimes they know a few things other times they rather not say because thats not their job and they don't want to give false info.  Also, ultrasound weights can be off by some amount.  At 21 weeks my little girl weighed 14 oz. A friend of mine her son weighed 12 oz at 21 weeks.  So I am sure yours is okay.  Just make sure you bring up your concerns with your doctor so your mind can be eased.
