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

No lol they are terrible and my doc wont even guess bc he says they are inaccurate and can stress the mother unneededly

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