They dont tell us over here...I'm 38+5 and they wont tell me anything other than 'average'! I've had 2 big babies and would really like a littler one! I wish they would say more, at least then I could make my peace with the idea of another 8 or 9lber!
I think I was told 8oz at my anatomy scan but that was done before 18 weeks also so that may be why there is such a big difference. How they tell weight is by the size of head, tummy, and the length of the femur I believe is the bone the measure. Pretty interesting I would say but ya its always just an estimate. My sister was told she was having a 8lb baby and the next day delivered a 10lb baby!! So its always a guess really until they get them on the scale :)
