    We had a 4d scan at 33+4 and they measured bubs to be 5lb 5oz, so that sounds about right. They said it was average. She said baby will put on half a pound a week now

    I had a scan at 34w and bub was estimated at 5lbs. Based on the rule that they gain 0.5lbs per week I was expecting at least an 8lb-er. I had bub at 41w +2 and he was 7lbs 8oz so not the monster I was expecting :lol:

    Apparently growth scans are not all that accurate. They have scared me with mine, as they measured baby big - and im tiny! 2 weeks ago, baby was 7Ib and head and abdo circumference at 98th centile. But they dont seem worried, and i dont wanna push for an induction. Am rather scared about pushing out a massive baby head though!

    I've got a growth scan on Monday when I'll be 33 + 6 and I'm expecting baby to be over 5lb. She was 4lb 2oz at my last scan 3 weeks ago. I've estimated she will probably be about 8 -8lb at birth but I'm a little pleased to hear growth scans aren't always correct cos I'd ideally only like her to be about 7.5 lb lol xx

    I really don't think you should pay too much attention to the growth scans. I had one at 30 and one at 32. The measurements taken showed that baby's head had shrunk!! really I say!! As if!!!xx
