I'm about 36 weeks and haven't had an ultrasound since 20 weeks and I understand every doctor is different but my doctor said I won't need another ultrasound...I'm pretty nervous because my mom had me and I was 6 pounds 13 oz - then had my brother who was 10 pounds 9 oz! It'd really be nice to know how big he will be!!! Has anyone else heard this before? Is it normal?
My previous OB didn't do a growth scan with my son, I had one at 6 weeks, one at 20 and that was it, :( He was 8lbs 9.5ozs at birth, since our son was so big (and my doctor does them routinely at 36 weeks) we got to have one extra one this pregnancy. Maybe mention to your doctor you'd like to know the size of your baby? I know getting closer to 37-38 weeks it can be harder to measure and estimate.
