Growth scan.

So I had a growth scan and I'm 35+2.
Baby is measuring 5lb 8oz at the moment which is a lovely healthy weight.

Just wondering if anyone else has had a scan around this time and what their babies weighed? Or if they've had one what weight their babies were born?

I know growth scans aren't 100% definite either. But it's nice to know an estimation.

I had a scan yesterday (32wks +2) baby is currently 5lbs 1oz!

DD2 they said weighted roughly 7lbs 6oz at 36 weeks, she was born at 38 weeks weighing a whopping 11lb 4oz
DD1 they said weighed roughly 6lbs 2oz at 36 weeks she was born at 39 weeks and 3 days and weighing 10lbs 2oz.
I didn't have extra scans with DS but he weighted 9lbs 8oz.

I had a growth scan at 33+3 and baby measured 5lb 6oz. He was born 6lb 12 oz.

I went for a private scan at 35weeks and baby is measuring 7lbs and apparently very long but I already know baby is on the big side so I would say your wee one is average.

I have birth at 39w.

With DS2 he was estimated 6lb at 36 weeks and was born at 38 weeks weighing 5lb 9oz so they were way off, DS1 38 weeks weighed 7lb born at 41w4d at 6lb 15oz and same estimation for DD expect she was born at 41w3d at 6lb 14oz, I'd take their estimation with a pinch of salt as I was told by my consultant that the scans can be as much as a pound out which is a lot x
