what did your baby measure around 20 weeks?

I have talked with some friends and they could not believe how big Henry is. 1lb 1 oz at 21 weeks. I was wondering what all your us said around that time and the size of the baby. I kow they can be off but he has been big from the begining. Just wanting to get a picture of what I might have coming:) One lady I talk with said hers was 9oz at almost 20 weeks. So Henry does seem big compared to that! NOt really scared of a big baby I guess;)

My little girl is measuring 8 oz at 18 w... I think 1lb at 20 to 21 weeks is not out of the norm...

my son measured a little over 8oz at 18w but 7 1/2 inches (6 1/2 is more average)...but my husband is very tall and thin and I was always thin growing up, so I think we're going to have a long, lean baby. if you or your husband is bigger, then 1lb is absolutely perfect, and even if you're not it's really not that large for 21wks ...from what I've read and been told by doctors, babies will reach 1lb at about 21-23wks on average depending on genetics... girls usually more towards 23/24wks, boys usually closer to 21/22wks.

so i wouldn't worry about him being too big, he sounds large but not huge...healthy! :)

good to know! yeah I had a baby girl at 23 weeks 8 years ago and they said she would be around 10oz and she was 1lb 2 oz and they were in shock. She was 12 inches long, no she did not make it but my time with her will never be forgotten. She lived for about 3 hours.

You know I never thought about the boys being bigger! I am 5'4" and DH is 5'11" and is not big but average I would say as far as built. I am small boned. I can't wait to see what size he is!!! And healthy is what I want for sure!!! They never gave me a length though.

My baby girl measured 10 ounces at 19w1d, and the doctor said that was the 50th percentile.  I'm 21w now, and my baby books are saying the baby should be about a pound.

At 18 weeks 5 days my baby measured 8 oz. Your baby is big!  I wonder if mine will grow that fast!  I can't imagine him being that heavy now being a bad thing!

At 20 weeks they said that my baby boy measured right at 13 oz. I think on average it is less than that or so I have read in the baby books that I have. I think that my What to Expect boy said that the average 20 week baby was about 9 oz. but I guess our boys are just a little larger.

My baby books also say that starting at about 17 weeks, babies start to grow at their own paces.  We are not all going to have an 8 pound baby.  Some of us will have 6 pound babies, some will have 9 pound babies.  I think it's normal that not all of our babies would way the same at 19/20 weeks pregnant.
