How far along are you? They told me my son was a little over 7 lbs, but he was 10. Told me at 37 weeks my daughter was only 5 lbs. She was 6 lbs 14 oz a week later when i had my csection. Lost down to 5 lbs 15 oz first day (that meconium poop stuff) but was perfectly healthy. Ultrasound machines can be up to 2 lbs off.is what i was told by the tech when she measured my daughter. Said that once they get so big it makes it harder to really measure because everything is so cramped.
I'm 35weeks but it's most likely because I'm so small
At 41 weeks they told me my daughter was 7 lbs 7 ounces and at birth she was only 6 lbs 10 ounces and they kept doing blood sugar tests over and over in the hospital it was awful. Within a week she gained almost a pound over her birth weight. Their guesses on weight are just that, guesstimate
A month and a half ago i was told my baby was 1pd underweight, then 3 weeks ago she was 1/2 pd overweight and as of this week shes supposedly 1/2 underweight again. i wouldnt worry about it bc they cant give u an exact weight of the baby until its born.
Thank you ladies y'all eased my mind a lot :)
I had the same problem. My daughter was born 4w early and weighed 4lb 8 oz and is a perfectly healthty 3 month old. Weighing in at 9lb almost 10 (:
Aww that's good I'm so ready to have him here
Yessss..i just posted about this last night I'm 31wks..they say my girl is underweight and weighs 2.9lbs.....but everything else is supposedly normal..i start weekly stress test next wk....sooooo worried ssims what is the stress test like??
Im I small person too. Everyone including my dr thought id have a small baby I ended up giving birth to an 8lb 1oz 21.5inch baby boy
Stress test is rather annoying after awhile. All they do is hook you up to a heartbeat and contraction monitor.
Lasro they put a blue strip and a pink strip around your belly one measures the heartrate and the other measures the movement it's not bad at all.
Kmama well I was only 5 and a half lbs so I'm mot too worried he's at 4 now and I still have a month to go
Shellylette ikr smh this was my second time and I'm already over it lol
I dont see any reason.to worry then he could gain 3 4lbs in that time
I had that problem with my son. I had preeclampsia and uterine growth restriction. My son was always underweight. He was born at 35weeks exact weighing 4lb 7oz. Even though he was premature he didn't have any problems. And once he was born he started to finally strive.
Well that makes me feel better also....thank you :)
